I have a friend, he is 4th dan TKD. his kicks are faster then the speed of sound. And he will never give you even one milimeter of his balance. I'd like to see you throw him without touching him.

remember, without a special conditionning, nobody will fall down just because you put your fist right to his nose. Only aikidoka do such horrors.
Speed of sound is 761 miles per hour. Can I get a video with something that shows his kicks going faster than that? Having studied TKD personally to 1st Dan and trained and competed for many years in the 80's and 90's I've never seen a kick that fast.

Also, the horror of this particular aikidoka falling down when my Sensei puts his fist to my nose is the fact that if I don't fall down then I get hit in the nose.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.
