i don't really like axe kicks, too slow, to easy to miss and they leave you to vunerable.




I disagree. with good training an axe kick can be quick. its a kick that u usually should use after u have executed another technique... otherwise it can be easy to read... also after u do an axe kick try and end the kick in a jump and front kick with ur other leg... if u get the circular momentum right u should be able to land in excelant balance because there is an action to control the fisrt one... so it couinter balances u.. and most takes away the vonrability issue... also alot of people aviod an axe kick with a side step... if u follow through with a front kick u can re aim and hit them on their sidestep... knocking them off balance... and axe kick is great if used in the right circumstances.

I haven't read through the rest of this thread, so it might have been covered:
When I first started TKD, I was doing static stretching to get my kicks better -- mainly putting my leg ontop of kicking bag/wavemaster, and stretching to the forward and side, as well as the ones where you sit down, spread your legs, and put your chest on the ground.
Recently though, I've changed my stretching to a completely dynamic routine -- All I do for stretching for kicks (lets say the ax), are first joint/hip rotations, followed by leg raises, which progress into an axe kick.
Read up on the science of stretching.

I agree and disagree on that.
An neryo-chagi is a very fast kick and it is also a good kick for attacking, not only in defence.

Well when I first started trying to do an axe kick as hard as I could...I'd do it so hard my leg would drag me into the air. At that point, I'd either a) somehow land on one foot, even before the kick leg came back down or b)accidently teach myself how to do a backflip or c)accidently teach myself how to breakfall

So just go all out with the axe kick...its win/win/win situation....sorta

Sushi,
it looks quite simple and fast! I would be afraid of a counter-attack to my head. while one leg is in the air you are not stabilized at all. I think it is too dangerous to use in a fight.
