Anthony Pettis On Taekwondo

When a lot of fightes think of Taekwondo they think of techniques that they feel are impractical and useless. They criticize this popular sport, but they have to realize that it is one of the most popular and practiced martial arts for a reason. Having been a competitor in Olympic Style TKD for years, I got lots of practice punching and kicking aganist and have been able to adapt those experiences into to other combat sports. There are a lot of fighters in professional Kickboxing and MMA that have backgrounds in TKD. Here's a clip of UFC Lightweight Champ, Anthony Pettis, talking about the influence of Taekwondo in his career as a mixed martial artist and his life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-ufRfalf4s
