Most martial artist can tell u that a kick, if properly train, can generate 3 times more power than a punch. Well, 3 times more power to a critical spot sounds nice doesn't it.

I feel a rising kick to the chin is a good way to leave someone with alot of broken teeth, 'cause i was kicked before, and it cant be seen easily in midrange. Our eyes could see a hell lot from the left to the right(periperal vision), but we cant see up and down.

Btw, no offense meant, isshinryu kid, could u do high kicks? i mean if u can do them, u'd probably understand.

[/QUOTE]Hi Jeneko,I Like to do a spinning back kick to the head,As I've done many times in the ring.My Spinning back kick, is so fast,It even surprises me.BUt That's, in the ring,But Realisticly u Wld'nt be able to do that on the street.As Most fights will be in close range.So About, 85 percent of the time,You'll be using hand techs.So It wld be rather hard to do a kick to the head. PS Live LOng & Prosper.

[/QUOTE]

You know that's one statement that has always bugged me over the years, "It wouldn't work on the street." Here's why, follow me on this...

I'm in the ring (or Dojo, Dojang, Kwoon, Gym, whatever) and I'm fighting a highly trained guy who knows I'm trying to knock his happy assets out and I succeed. Then the guy's coach/teacher/buddy/EMT tells me that wouldn't have worked on the street against an unsuspecting assailant who thinks he has the upper hand, a weapon, and the element of surprise...

I'M JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND SCREAMING HERE! Logically, it just doesn't follow...

I'll also add just another aside.

We must have some terrible, terrible, terrible instructors that teach all these thugs all this dirty fighting that's gonna beat the well-trained, honest martial artist.

No, the thugs of the world are the slime of the world and have not the ability or the nature to train at a thing. He's thinking boot to the head just about as much as I am worried about scoring my next vial of crack, if you get my drift...
