Top 5 Walk-Off Knockouts In ONE Championship

In the world of martial arts, there is not much better than a walk-off knockout. Not only because the knockout is the culmination of the tireless work ethic to perfect your striking skills, but because walking away without following-up shows respect to your fallen opponent.


In ONE Championship, there have been several walk-off shots that have captivated audiences around the globe.

Now you can watch the five best walk-off knockouts in the organization's history.

Featured in the video is the conclusion of the epic ONE Middleweight World Championship clash between Aung La "The Burmese Python" N Sang and Ken Hasegawa. After more than four grueling rounds, Aung La N Sang was able to land a decisive uppercut in the final frame sending Hasegawa crashing to the canvas in his first defense of the middleweight crown.

Also on display, Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen's highlight-reel flying knee KO.

Nguyen put his leg kicks to work against Narantungalag Jadambaa and damaged the lead leg of his opponent. As his opponent was compromised against the Circle wall, Nguyen elevated with a flying knee that connected flush.

The knockouts were beautiful, but the respect shown not to follow up when it was unnecessary shows the true heart of martial arts. These athletes exemplified that in their stunning showcases on the global stage by doing what they do best.

Enjoy those performances and a few more from Geje Eustaquio, ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes, and ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua "The Passion" Pacio.

How will you perform at the moment of truth?

Will you defend yourself immediately, hesitate during the first few critical seconds of the fight, or will you be so paralyzed with fear that you won't be able to move at all? The answer is - you won't know until you can say, "Been there, done that." However, there is a way to train for that fearful day.

This week I've asked Robert Borisch to give me a birds eye view on his marketing strategy.

Robert is the head sensei and owner of Tri-City Judo a well-established commercial judo school in Kennewick, Washington. I am very impressed with his highly successful business. Unlike BJJ, TKD, karate, and krav maga, in judo we tend to teach in community centers, YMCA's, and other not for profit outlets. So when I find a for profit judo model that is growing by leaps and bounds, it intrigues me. Below are Robert's raw and uncensored comments spoken like a true commercial martial arts school entrepreneur / owner.

The man who apparently launched a racist verbal attack on U.S. women's kata champion Sakura Kokumai earlier this month in a California park has been arrested following a physical assault on an elderly Korean-American couple in the same park Sunday. Michael Vivona is accused of punching a 79-year-old man and his 80-year-old wife without provocation.

Mynewsla.com reported that a group of people playing basketball in Grijalva Park at the time of the assault recognized Vivona from his previous harassment of Kokumai and surrounded him until a nearby police officer arrived to make an arrest. The incident with Kokumai, who is slated to represent the United States in this summer's Tokyo Olympics, gained widespread notice after she posted a video of it on social media in an effort to increase awareness about the growing threat of anti-Asian racism.
