Manson Gibson is by far the best awkward kickboxer of all time. He tributes his style to his extensive background in praying mantis kung fu. Dubbed the "Black Bruce Lee," he used side kicks, spinning back fists, jumping punches, spinning kicks to win his fights.
It was unbelievably effective. In this match he faces the greatest heavyweight kickboxer of all time, Ernesto Hoost when Hoost was already on his way to becoming a legend.
It's important to respect all styles. What is unorthodox today was orthodox yesterday in American Kickboxing. It's important to know the history and how the styles became the way it is today.
If you want to learn more about the historic techniques, please give my new book preview a reading chance at http://www.legendarystriking.com
I study Ernesto's low kick in detail as well as explore the relationship between the unorthodox and orthodox.
