Thanks for all the replies. I'm in no way trying to say that the kick is useless, andif you like it and it works, use it by all means. Personally, I just don't see many uses for it, and certainly not enough for the kick to be trained significantly.

Unless you see the utility in this kick, you will not understand why this kick even exists. Suffice to say, this is one of my favourite kicks, one which I find has more utility than a front snap.... YMMV.

I love this kick also but to me the front kick is still the best! Well second best. The roundhouse is the best, that is of course my opinion.

Probably another reason why I wouldn't use it, my body couldn't torque that way. Circular or linear basic kicks for me.

Yes, but with front kicks & turning kicks, the opponent is usually in a different location that they would be, where a twisting kick should/can be utilized.

Iím having a hard time with this ďis the bestĒ concept. If the opponent Iím facing does not offer something to hit with a front kick/round house/etc then what are they the best for??

Angles... angles... angles...

If you're not in position or range to properly deliver a front/side/roundhouse, BUT you are just within range to deliver a twisting kick to the inside thigh, would you take it?

If you read my above posts, hell yea I would take it. But I am not so much talking about this kick or any other really, just this concept of one kick being the best. I donít get itÖ

To be fair, only BulldogTKD has mentioned the 'best' kicks...
