When in free sparring i tend to use alot of kicks rather than punches, i find it so much easier to use the left leg to kick instead of the right leg. Though now after getting annoyed at only using my left leg i've started to train more with my right, so it's slowing getting stronger.

I'm very interested in this nerve u were talking about earlier, soon as i finish collage tonight im going to look for any infomation on that nerve as im kinda curious about it.

Hey! I'm not the best martial artist but I would say that kicks in real combat can be extremely devastating in conjunction with punches. I learned all my skills from basically just paying attention to everything I see on T.V., the internet... and, I have taught myself what I have seen Bruce Lee teach using videos I have gotton off the net. If an attacker goes to move forward a quick kick on a angle down and towards the centre line of their body should bust any knee cap. After that the attacker should now be on one knee, if not screaming in pain. You could run in for the finishing blow or just leave the attacker know that they will never mess with you again... but, assualt charges could rack up quickly if you bust the knee... so, if you have to kick it, just tenderize it. Follow in with a quick hammer fist to the back of the head... it should knock them out or down for a bit. And I have heard of the nerves in the legs, and I have learned roughly where a dozen are... but, unfortunately the ones I know about are fatal, so I won't say where they are, only that fatal nerves do exist. There are 36 fatal points on the human body. Figure em out, and you own most... but, some of the points won't kill someone for an hour, a day, a month, a year... there is one that is supposed to take like seven years to work... but, I assure you that they do exist..

Properly focused side kicks are not the easiest move to use when from a standing position, maybe from side on, and you would run in to finish the opponent off? I suggest you try charging in to begin a coup d' main and see where you end up - probably with a foot slamming into your groin.

Why are you giving tips on nerve points when you don't know where they are?

Ok lets keep it friendly ladies and gents. I've deleted two posts that served no purpose other than to prolong an arguement.

A kick and punch attack would certainly be effective and unexpected to the average street fighter. I would attack with a left hooking punch immediately followed by a right mawashe geri (roundhouse kick) to the knee area. This is a very common attack in Pride and other MMA fighting tournaments.

Be careful when using a front kick in the street... make sure it snaps b/c it is very easy to catch.

*Side kicks are bad for self-defense (turns your hips away from your opponent)

*Kicking should be avoided nearly altogether in street combat (better to use your feet for what God gave 'em to you for -- MOVEMENT)

*"Pressure" cannot be generated while standing on one leg (regardless of how quick you think you are) compared to the pressure of having good "hands".

Train kicks in the gym so you'll have a sense of being able to read them. Leave them at home when you head out however.

i personally, would say it depends on the kick. Like previously said, kicks to the knee are fine, and i am constantly using a defensive side kick to spar (great for people who constantly reach for the head with their lead hand).
However, I would STRONGLY stay away from many kicks to the head. it's all too easy for someone to hook their arm under your leg and trap it against them.

I have had great results in using low kicks in real defense situations. But I keep a very small kick arsenal. This includes:

1. Low side kicks to the knees/thigh
2. Front kick to groin, then slide in with the shin on their groin to give a "shearing" effect (VERY painful, feels like using sand paper on your dong!)
3. Sweeps to the inside of the ankle, forcing it to buckle
4. Side snap kick to the bladder/hips (bladder hit will cause the bowels to empty, the results of which ive explained before, as for the hips, it can put them out of joint and then they are screwed).
5. Inside push kick (usually used at grappling range, and to the knee at all times, from nearly any angle it can put the knee out of joint or even crack it, or if used on the femur bone, will crack it in half if you get it on the right angle.
6. Hiza Geri

And ill leave it at that. These have worked well for me.

I've never been in an actually self defense situation, but I'd imagine that at the very least you could get a surprise kick in before your attacker realized it was coming.
