What is the most effective kick for the streets? We all know that the most effective kick to use in a street attack is the one that takes him out.

But to do this which one would it be. From my street fighting experince its been the front kick low level, with toe of shoe or heel. Or the low level heel or flat of the shoe side kick. The quick flip round kick to the nuts has worked.

But most often the front kick low has been the most successful. Which has worked for you?

Some people believe that any kick in the street is risky, that has not been my experince. Its either opened a door to end or was the end. Its one the strongest weapon we have, it would be like leaving the shotgun in the Squad car, not to use them IMHO.

I think kicking is always a risky thing, almost never when I fought, but now I might consider it, after I hit him with a few punches, I would not just go in and kick and give him a chance to catch it, no I would press, punch punch punch and bang then the kick would come, prolly go with a low roundhouse(still not sure of the english names) on the side of the knee and hoping he had his weight on the that leg while I kicked it...

I would say a low stamp kick to the knee with heel.
Why?
1.Its not a high kick so it can not be caught, only deflected.
2. Unlikely to be deflected because if you are looking at him in the eyes and he is looking back he probably wont even see it coming because it would be below his line of vision.
3. You can close the gap that way safely and then follow in with punches/whatever
4. His knee is probably going to break if it has any weight on it, and if its not it will still hurt like a mother...
5. Keeps the opponent out of punching range.
6. Its a quick delivery that has no telegraphing, you got to be pretty crap to telegraph that kick.
7. It does not require flexibility in the legs

I'd say roundhouse to the side of the knee. The front of the patella is quite resilient but a decent kick to the side should do some damage. It also presents a larger target area which is important under stress and it is a low kick, reducing the chance of the kick being caught or losing balance. That said, the kick may be awkward to use, especially if you're used to using your shin to kick with.

Probably best to leave out kicks alltogether.

'soccer'kick to the front of the shin is easy to perform without losing balance, and, when wearing steel toe caps, very painfull. Not an ma technique but a good one.

Exactly You also maintain a good body position whilst doing it, so whatever guard you adopt (if any in such circumstances) is easy to maintain.It is also difficult to grab, and extremely quick to execute. If you catch em a little high you come in on the tendon just below the knee cap in a hard upward motion. Either way if you connect it certainly gets their attention. No such thing as 'best' but i like this one.

Thats probably because they didnt know how to fight. A high kick is hard to pull off, especially against someone experienced. You must be really good to deliver something effective, and it has to be first time, because otherwise you will find yourself on your back in less time than it takes to say: "oops"!

Cord. Its better to stamp down than an upwards shin kick because the because its pretty easy to avoid it (you just have to lift your leg, and when your leg hits the air you will be off balance. Its better to stamp down because unless the dude has some pretty nifty footwork, you are definetely going to connect with something, and you can put your weight behind it, and you can close the gap to follow up with punches.

This is just from my experience and opinion.
