if you can land any kick to the head, the fight is alreadydone. just push the guy over.

The problem people have it high kicks is that the opponent can grab your foot.

To deal with that trapping and locking is a good option for setting up the attack. If you trapped one of his hands or have him in a wrist lock, how can he catch your foot?

You can high kicks aren't safe, but you can make them safe.

Here is an example of how high level kicks can be made safe to execute without worry about someone grabbing you leg.

Now, I never said that they were good examples [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG] , but they are not half bad.

Just look at the ones that involved trapping.

The pictures didn't really explain what you were trying to get across. Could you maybe explain what they were doing in words.

while high kicks are risky on street,and not sure i'd recomend them theres no doubt they can be done and have been done,and have been fight enders,in fact if u think about it in u.f.c. they got it on tape where a guy knocked out his opponent with kick to the head,and his opponent definetly was trained and skilled,haveing said that i still believe high kicks to the head are a high risk manuver.i do train my kicks for head hieght but just so i maintain flexability, [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/cool.gif[/IMG]

The idea with kicking low is that it's harder to block and grab the leg.

This is true but not when you have already seized one of you opponents limb. He is gonna be able grab your leg with one hand.

If you grab one of his hands and then pull him into you while kicking (just for brutality).

You do this the same way you would to trapping or grappling combined with striking at any range.

My favourite is pulling the opponent towards me while doing a front stamp kick under his chin. It's a TKO and unstopable cause you can't block once you are trapped.

Shotokan, first, what is a front stamp kick? Second, why does it result in a Technical Knockout? Third, why can't a person block a kick with one arm?
