I gotta agree with Minatour, you will probably destroy him. Use the clinch!

Friend, i can advise you to be very cautious.
I feel your neighbor wants to spar to gain experience in the ring.
Might i also say that Tae Kwon Do is the leading art of leg strikes, alot of the time Tae Kwon Do is under estimated, especially by Muay Thai fighters.
A fight a couple of years back a Russian Muay Thai champion (in his prime, around 34 yoa) was put in critical condition from a single high kick to the head by an extremely agile and precise 61 year old TKD master. It appears when he entered to match he decided he would wear him down, chop at the legs and go in tight for elbows and knee strikes, but it appears he did not realise that a true master of TKD has an extensive knowledge of aerial kicks, some of which are the most powerful of all, and are incredible hard to block.

Also, do not under estimate your opponent. Just because he is a redbelt doesn't mean he isn't a great fighter.

I just thought i would share some wisdom.

Enjoy your night.

I once had a fight with a guy in my year that did TKD, i mean a real fight not sparring. Him and his friend had a fight with me and my friend outside a club one night by a beach. This guy was a black belt in TKD and i had bee training MT fr about 2 and a half years. He was lightning fast, he kicked me about 3 times in one jump!! but after that it was over, i just thai clinched him and landed one knee and a few uppercuts, then we got broken up.

But i think he woulda been out, since then i dont really rate TKD

i got into it with a TKD black belt back in the day, he kicked me in the body as hard as he could, I took his ass down and laid a beat on him. His instructor came to my club and tried to tell me he wanted to fight, he watched about a half hour of my class and left. I found out later he had been their...by the way, his student was a guy I tossed out of the bar, so I was working at the time.

Like Sabum, like pupil.
It is disappointing that many of these less experienced TKD instructors are paid to instruct.
How far many arts have fallen...
