TKD is a great style for training kicks and flexibility a lot of pro fighters trained TKD however i suggest taking another martial art along with it perhaps boxing or muay thai because lets be serious a lot(not all) of TKD kicks are all for show and not effective.

This is a good analysis, I am solely a TKD guy I've trained for years in it and I know its flaws, lots of people will knock traditional MAs like karate, kung fu, Taekwondo and Aikido simply because they are not MMA. Mixing up martial arts is good because you are not constricted to one style, you can mix it up a bit, be the best fighter you can be. Regardless of whether your with an ITF or WTF club, you need to join a boxing club too, Taekwondo fails at teaching boxing, I myself even though I am a huge huge fan of TKD know that we punch, we do not box lol

My advice is, if your into competition sparring, stick solely to TKD training because Hooks, knee/thigh kicks and takedowns are banned usually, but if your looking into self defence/Mixed style competition sparring you need to incorporate several different MAs.

Hope I helped, rep up and if you need anything more do PM I will be happy to answer any questions

But mma is mixed martial arts. So if you combine any 2 martial arts or use them both in any way, you do mma. Technically, I am a mixed martial artist since I trained in TKD which was combined with aikido, judo, and karate. But I'm a traditional mixed martial artist, not one of the more common "mma guys" who do BJJ and MT.

Ive trained in TKD too, the best advise i have to offer if using it in a street fight is to avoid the higher kicks that could lead to being taken down or even just losing balance. combine it with other punch based styles like boxing. But as long as you train hard in the styles that you do learn, anything can be effective.

sport taekwondo is bullsh!t in a streetfight. but the ancient form seems to be pretty applicable.

Keep away from the flashier moves unless you reckon you're simply amazing.
Cross train in boxing to improve your hand work, or simply merge it with your Muay Thai, use the TKD kicks intelligently, to control the distance until you're ready to go in for a close range barrage.
Cheers mate.
