Wow you guys are really violent.
I hope you would never really hit people with baseball bats etc.
I have two questions for the group
1) How many of you have been in a fight of any kind or know someone who has been in a fight ? OK almost all of us.
2)How many of you know personally of anyone who has been killed in a fight ? ( Not counting Alex Gong or others known through the occasional headline, and that wasn't a fight in the typical sense)

My point is most altercations are really not life or death struggles so learn Judo to deal effectively along a continuum of responses including god forbid a lethal struggle.
I am sure Judo is not the only path to this, just the one I know best.

so people are suggesting not to use kicks for self defence, then why do you practise and practise them for strength, i really doubt it most things in martial arts have there place especially kicks but its my belief that it should be kept simple no jumping spinning backs kicks :P lol.

The use of kicking techniques effectively in a real street attack situation is possible, but not probable. The feet are best kept underneath you to provide power and mobility and to maintain balance. Sweeps and stomps are effective as they are low enogh not to disrupt your balance as much. They are also applied at a shorter distance to a closer target which diminishes the attackers time to respond.

i am new to this forum, i practice hanmudo and i think one of the most devastating kicks that i would actually use is the inner knee kick.
