However, Taekwando can be a perfectly serviceable striking base if the person adapts it to an MMA context.

Well, theoretically maybe. I can't think of anyone who has managed to be even close to successful using striking even remotely similar to tkd

It's also about positioning yourself such that you can throw good, hard, accurate punches but your opponent can't. Watch Anderson Silva or Lyoto Machida and see how often it happens that when one of them is punching a guy in the mouth, there's no real angle for that guy to punch back with anything but a weird, off balance arm punch.

I just started following sumo (January tournament thread in RR now) and it is no poo poo exactly like MMA circa 1999. They train for hours a day and far past exhaustion, they are expected to train through any injury that doesn't put you in hospital, and any deviation from this sort of poo poo gets you called a pussy (in politer, Japanese-ier terms) and hazed / ostracised by your peers. It's going to be loving rad when one of the stables trains with modern methods because they will immediately start dominating purely because all their fighters aren't carrying half a dozen injuries and in a state of perpetual total exhaustion.

Training in a way that works is probably illegal and/or would get your dick chopped off by yakuza
