I suppose it comes down to the students proficiency in which every art one practices.
I've witnessed TKD fighters really hammer some people home with those dramatic, high flying jumping side kicks....I've seen guys get really creamed precisely because they weren't keeping their feet on the ground. Personally, from what I've seen of Uechi-Ryu it is a "day in day out" much more effective combative style.
Thanks for the reply and for having me in your "house." If an Uechi-Ryu practitioner ever comes to TN, please let me know. I'd love to sign up as a student!!
