the bullshite head and hand fakes leading nowhere. wow, really low quality. place head directly onto lightly rising foot. knockout. meh. embarrassingly poor officiating. if i had behaved the way the losing fighter did, c.1985, teacher would have pulled me out of the competition as not being fit to represent. Here's some good stuff. I haven't been able to find a link to embed. It's an official casually saving a fighter from serious injury. https://fb.watch/7jManpFA6j/

Here's some not very old tkd competitions. If some of these kicks landed, there wouldn't be a dq. (Turn down the volume). :)

This is Joe Rogan winning a tkd bout in 1987. Compare.
