In Part One of Cool MMA and muay Thai moves, I gave a couple examples of unorthodox techniques in the cage and in the ring. As I was going through some archives today, I found another prime example of this. Check it out:
After the initial seconds, I feared for the Capoeira fighter’s immediate future. Very often, guys who start out with these funky techniques and insist on doing them, get KOed or punished right away. But not this guy. He does the kicks and jumps without holding back, which is a large part of making them work so kudos to him for landing his spinning kick.
Would I teach this stuff to beginning fighters? Hell no. But you can'”t argue with the fact that it worked. :-) Nicely done.
