[QUOTE]Originally posted by isshinryu kid:
in Isshinryu karate a kick to the groin is legal,But not in tkd.& this is kumite which should not be compared to self defense.So why has it become more a bout kicking in the head? You should sidestep or parry,Make you blocks strikes.Keep your kicks low so you can be ready if another attack were to happen. Exaggerate the move,if your foe pulls your arm,Don't fight it go with it but faster & give'm a knee.Or do high low combinations,Until the oportunity presents itself. But never kick high in a real fight. PS But Thats just my opinion. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

____________________________________________
you do have the basic idea but in tae kwon do your just not allowed to kick the balls in the ring. my tkd instructer actually tells us to kick low in a real fight becouse often the fight starts close with a push or a bump or a mistake gesture like an unintented middle finger or an accidental elbow to the side. but he also says to end the fight as quickly as possible, while preventing as many injurys as possible to your opponent.( in other word end the fight while not injuring your opponent to badly.)
he says to hit the main targets which are as followed.
CLOSE(kneeing range)- shin, knees, sides of legs(espesially insides of legs), balls, and akilees heel, and akilees tendons.
CLOSE(kicking range)-gut, solarplexus, chin, jaw, throught, sides of head, under armpits, ribs, and sides.
I hope this reply helps.
