I may be prejudiced as an old KK guy, but this looks like the kind of training that teaches kicking pretty well. Any opinions?

Surprised no one commented on this.

And no, you are not being biased. While it is a short clip, it is still excellent. Instead of just demonstrating power kicking, it also teaches how to put together intelligent combos that flow. I like that even in the brief time it covers a "change up pitch" too. Feeds them the low round twice then switches to the axe. Good stuff.

I agree. I don't speak Japanese, but that's a pretty sweet little clip. Maybe my favorite part is that some attention is obviously paid to what the pad holder should be doing, which is something some people overlook.

Also, yay ax kick! It's so brutal and fun. It even has a fun name, at least in English and Korean. The Korean is chik ki cha gi. That's just fun to say.

I could watch Andy Hug kick all day. Very inspirational.

See, even the Japanese name is awesome. Also, yeah, that's a serious kick he's got there. It's a fairly dangerous strike they're demonstrating, as well. On somebody who didn't see it coming, you'd probably snap their clavicle right in two. And below the clavicle, well...lots of stuff that doesn't need to get poked with sharp broken bone.

For clarification - Kyokushin terminology for axe kick is actually uchi/soto oroshi kakato geri; inside or outside descending heel kick.

BTW, Mawashi geri is round house kick, RealFolkBlues.

Whoops, I misunderstood. Thanks for the corrections, guys. Oroshi kakato geri still seems pretty fun to say. :)

In Korean it is written 찍기차기 which literally means downward spiking motion kick, or colloquially, spike kick.

I hadn't seen the hangul for it. Korean is a neat language. That translation might actually be even more brutal.

Oh stop with the hyperbole. Have you actually been hit with that kick? Do you know what it's like pulling off that kick in live sparring? You're not going to be snapping anyone's clavicle...

I'm pretty sure I said if you hit someone who didn't see it coming, it would break the bone. Considering I've seen people break bricks with it, I don't think it's an unreasonable assumption that it would snap a long thin bone like the clavicle if you hit flush. Obviously that last part is the tough one. And yes, I've both thrown and defended against this kick in live sparring.

The Andy hug ax kick is hyperbole worthy though.
