Takayuki Kohiruimaki is a Japanese kickboxing champion with a kyokushin karate background. In 2004, he angered a prime Buakaw that was en route to winning his first K-1 Max Championship against Masato.
This fight demonstrates the power of Buakaw, the effectiveness of low kicks against a wider and punching oriented stance, as well as just how effective the Muay Thai clinch can be. We are now beginning to see great Muay Thai clinch in the UFC via champions such as Jon Jones and Demetrious Johnson.
I am a striking analyst that’s so far focused on breaking down combat sports. I’ve been fortunate enough to have major fight camps, legends, and elite martial artists give testimonials to my work – http://www.lawrencekenshin.com/testimonials If you’ve enjoyed this breakdown, be sure to check out my usual work in combat sports.
