Whichever kick you can do that works is the best.

I can tell you guys are well trained professionals and I have similar creds. One point of interest on this groin topic, a city in NC payed out a large settlement after one of their officers kneed a guy in the groin and busted one of his testicles. So we're a little gun shy about it around here but "it's better to be judged by 12 than carried by six."

Well i have been into some fights but never used a kick, my oppents were usally "gangst" wannabe so they got their a$$ kicked easily, but for me 2-3 jabs to the jaws do the job
But if i was to kick in a fight, i would probably do a low side kick to the side of the knees, that would/should break/dislocate the bones and when he is disabled,

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA you get the idea

i don't think i kick higher than the knee is really viable, if you're opponent has the sense to actually grab you leg then his mates are gonna kick you're head in while your on the ground.the only unside to kicks is that most untrained fighters won't use legs, at least in my experience anyway. the only place head kicks should be used is in the dojo unless your good enough to do them.

I have found short, fast low line leg kicks to be the best. Example are classic Muay Thai kick roundhouse or "teep" to the legs and knees is fast, forceful and extremely effective.
Humbly,
Devin

Footstick,A low kick, or a low snapkick is almost impossibe to block b/c #1 the a low snap kick is too low to block,& as soon as you are kicking with a 90 degree extension,You immidiately recoil making it harder for your adversary/punk to grab the low snap kick.

I Guess to put it another way,You can't block what you can't see.

I havent read all the responces so I might be repeating what others have said but....

Kicks that target knees and shins.
If nessessary kicks to the face of a downed opponent.
Peronally I like low kicks

MY experience in security, has been that shin kicks to the knees or inner/outter thigh are good. Using your leg for leverage in tripping is also very good.

Like my name says, Sidekick. Thats my signature move. It uses my momentum and bodyweight to my advantage. I can hit the solar plexes, abs, legs, shins, knees, possibally neck with this kick, position and angle is key though.

it depends upon the situation. although i agree that for most people it is the front kick.

Personaly, i just love a backfist, reverse punch, front kick, round kick combo. Thats very basic, but its also very effective. If you can get your opponent going backwards real fast, then he will most likely be off balance. (not many people can fight backwards.)
