Why does milkshake have milk?

I think you need to rephrase the question.

i will attempt this, but because my answer is based on an assumption, the answer may be wrong....

low kicks~~obviously because they are effective, they also allow the chambering of power

high kicks~~can also be effective, but can tend to not be so powerful and can leave time for your opponet to knock you off balance. TKD is a lot of point sparring (originating from soldiers combat training) and, the head is up high. you get extra points for a well executed head shot. To reach the head, you need a high shot!

Soldiers train for combat using point sparring???????
Are you insane, on drugs, or take to many head kicks??????????????????
You kick high to strike head and throat.
Kick low to hit ankles,shins,knees,groins,ribs, solar plexus.
You do either of these to cause pain, disability, or death to opponent.
