Lyoto Machida just knocked out Randy Couture with a Crane Kick...pretty cool I must say.

I just called it a scissor kick, and it was indeed awesome. there were some good side kicks to the thigh in there as well. It's nice to see a Karate guy to trains to fight, and then beats people with Karate.

Well, I thought it was more like the jumping front kick in Chinto, but it's very close to the "crane kick" that everybody wants it to be so I suppose that's good enough . It certainly was a great kick!

As far as the "crane kick" goes, we taught that to our yellow belts (3rd gup) in the ATA, and all of our students learn that kick as a basic kick in orientation class. Minus standing on the stump, of course.

For what its worth...hope that doesn't ruin the mysticism of the "crane kick" for anyone.

I loved this, and I really think that GSP and Machida are doing good things for Karate in the MMA world at present!

I agree. He is still a phenomenal Martial Artist and athlete, and I'm certain he could still compete at some lower levels with great success. Maybe we'll all get lucky and he'll do some more movies, and let his career go that route. But, if he chooses to keep fighting, then more power to him.

I know this is going to sound oversimplified, but it looks like the jump front kick I learned in Soo Bahk Do, but going for distance rather than altitude. The announcer did call it a crane kick.

This fellow names the fight and calls that shot a front jump kick.
