Joe Rogan is a certified beast. He has been around some of the greatest MMA champions and striking coaches and they all agree that his Taekwondo kicks the best they’ve ever seen.

For years, many thought that I had a bias towards Taekwondo. It’s simply not true. In fact, I love Taekwondo, it’s the first martial art that I deeply appreciated. In the 90s and early 2000s, Taekwondo was very aesthetically pleasing and much more brutal.

There are so many great Taekwondo techniques that have worked throughout historic fights. However, they became less popular for a reason: karate and Taekwondo style fighters were often getting stretchered out of the ring due to Muay Thai style leg kicks.

This is why I featured Muay Thai and Kickboxing beating traditional arts so often. They serve as an important lesson that you must learn textbook Muay Thai and Kickboxing technique before moving forward with side kicks, axe kicks, jumping kicks, and spin kicks.

Without the fundamentals, the chances of any of these techniques working goes way down. Now that I have featured many historic lessons of textbook technique, I am featuring more of these great Taekwondo style techniques going forward. There is no better guide to Taekwondo kicks than Joe Rogan. If you are interested in Taekwondo for MMA and Kickboxing, this is the definitive starting guide.

Valentina Shevchenko has been using Taekwondo kicks in MMA, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai for entire career and won world championships in all the above sports. The spinning back kick is one of her signature moves and Joe Rogan himself was impressed and said she has one of the best spinning back kicks in the game. Pull up any highlight video of her and it's filled with opponents getting hit with Taekwondo kicks.

Samouy Krub says:

Maybe try to use your body weight go only with your kicks that might help get heavier kick force. Just like Bruce Lee said "put your hips into it"…

The fundamentals are the best. I like them all. Specially Roundhouse ( all level ), Front kicks ( all level ), spinning back kick (all but specially mid ).

AABradyKK says:

I got hit with an axe kick once. Hurt like a MFer… felt like my spine was compressed. Took over 2 weeks for the pain to piss off.

M S says:

GSP and Joe it's like in a kungfu movie, when the hero defeated and went looking a sage or kungfu master begging to teach him certain moves to defeat his enemy.😂
