As a martial arts enthusiast, Rogan recounting his past martial arts experience said, “I was a Massachusetts state champion, and I won a thing called the American open I came in second in the US cup against a guy who fought in the Olympics and I’ve competed in a lot of taekwondo tournaments but then I started kickboxing and I realized how easy it was for me to get fu *** d up

Because taekwondo you only kick, you only punch to the body and so my ability to block punches to my face I was grossly overestimating, so I started sparring with kickboxers just getting lit so then I started really concentrating on boxing and kickboxing and I was still competing in taekwondo I was like I got to stop doing this cause I don’t want to do this anymore and I wanted to start doing stand up and I knew I was in the middle doing both of them

Only after trying out kickboxing did he understand his dazzling taekwondo roundhouse kicks wouldn’t work in a full-contact fight. Taekwondo is more of a point sport with full safety gear, whereas kickboxing is pure hurt business.
