im 4'11, and about 85lbs, so when i spar i need to use speed kicks that still need to offset my opponet. problem is, most kicking combos that are meant for power are not going to faze my opponet...if i can kick as hard as i can, it may be light to my bigger opponet. im having problems finding quick yet powerful kicking combonations...any help?

Well let me take first crack at this kitten. For fighting bigger opponents you need speed and power but you need mobility as well so Im going to suggest these combinations from a nuetral stance also remember to attack from the front leg first.
1. Roundhouse to the knee into side kick mid level.
2. Fake roundhouse to knee into roundhouse to the face.
3. Fake roundhouse to the face into roundhouse in the back of the knee.
4. Front kick into side kick
5. Crescent kick to side kick
6. Crescent kick to crescent kick
7. Roundhouse to hook kick
8. Roundhouse or Crescent kick to Back kick
9. Roundhouse to ax kick
10. Knee to front ckick or vice versa.
Well that should keep you busy for a minute kitten. I use these myself. Number two works alot. You can also switch that one up by facking with the knee attack and face attack and land with a rear leg roundhouse.

Some excellent options from Chen.

Any feint, when done well, should work.

Also judge their distance and move quickly inside their guard, but watch out for the hands.

Feinting with your body movement is also a good way to create openings and deliver stikes. Stepping forward but at an angle should enable you to strike under the guard or jump above it.

When you pull these off, you'll get a few surprized faces. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

Hope this helps.

Budo.

Excellent point Judderman.You reminded me of how Bill Wallace would chamber his leg high and literally kick around guys blocks. The way he would hold his leg up and move his body around you never knew when he was gonna kick.

Yes, I've seen this (although not the man) many times.

One defence my partner tried was to leave the lead hand extended. Although this does open up the gaurd, it does intimidate less experienced practitioners.

Get someone who knows how to move and kick quickly and this is idea is well out of the window.

That said, I suppose the chambered kick is much the same threat.

Budo.

It depends on the situation and experience of the fighters as to whether or not chambering is good. Your kicks are stronger but an experienced fighter would seize the chamber as an opportunity to rush his opponent and take away his balance. You cant really use it all the time or never use it , you have to mix it up.

I came across my favourite combo/feint by mistake one day while training. My problem is that i'm 16 stone (14lbs x 16= ????lbs) and 6ft 2 and thus not as fast as some of my smaller opponents when it comes to point sparring in tkd)

Anyway try this and you'l be surprised how effective it is:

throw a low kick to opponent's shin and follow on with a hooking kick to opponent's head.

points to consider on this feint:

1) for it to work you must have one fluid motion from the firest low kick to the hooking kick-that is the leg never touches the fround again until the hookink kick is finished.

2) if you mix it up with the low kick/high turning kick feint then it will surprise your opponent more.

3) i would not advise it for a self-defense situation as the hooking kick is not normally as powerful as the side kick or the turning kick (though there are exceptions). However as a point sparring technique it is excellent.

4)remember in tkd the low kick is just a feint as no contact is permitted below the belt, but if you want to get the kick to its full potential, actually practice on a punch bag and make the low kick connect with the bag with as much power as you can muster then follow thru with the hooking kick. This will improve your balance no end.

Regards,

Big Bear

Is punching not allowed or what?

Sorry, I'm a Karateka, and rely more heavily on my hands than those in tkd(though I used to be a tkd student, it never worked well for me, especially because it was a crappy club), so my best advice would come from those.
