A couple of years ago, didn't someone die at a tournament cause he took a spinning hook kick to the temple? I remember reading something about that in the newspaper.

A korean soldier, fighting in viet nam. I suppose it was possible.
Killed a green beret with a kick to the head?
Was this after he shot him with his ak-47 and the green beret was lying on the ground?
Or did the korean soldier spring from the jungle, running towards the green beret who was defenseless(though I believe a m-4 carbine beats ANY kick)?

Why stop with a single green beret?
Let's make the story he took out an entire specops group. He did this by standing on one leg, leaning back, flailing the foot of the raised leg around as he hopped after them. Even better, he would have single handedly won the conflict, except when he hopped across the country he fell into the gulf of tonkin and drowned.

LOL!

Neko, mate, top marks!

Darkest,

A few years ago a dutch kid (okay over 18 years old) died at the US Open due to a head shot.

I know at my school head kicks are allowed. In fact I've never heard that they weren't. Besides, they're useful. Throw a few kicks towards your opponet's stomach, FAKE a kick to their stomach and then when they go to block simply introduce your foot to their head. It works, I've seen it done.

Kicking to the head in tournaments...

With children sometimes it is not allowed.
Sometimes it is allowed with very strict "power" rules in place.

In underbelts there was the "no blood" rule when dealing with kicks to the head (olympic sport) in some organizations (not schools...organizations)

In black belt (adult) it usually is whatever goes. There has been some cases where I saw things like "no blood" or "no viscious contact" which, to me, is a poor thing to limit blackbelts on.
