    "On the other hand, one can sometimes use a combo to set up a hard kick and then go back to watching Dutch kickboxers on TV and beating off."

    Biggest mistake I've made so far was kicking Sempai in the face when visiting a Shotokan dojo.
    Even when you are throwing combos, you might kick without taking a step. I can't believe I'm lowering myself to yottabit's level by posting a video, but tell me how many kicks Bonjaski throws without taking a step. BTW I thoroughly fapped to him before making this post.

    A lot of very good fighters never take a step. I personally use both step round kicks and non-step round kicks.

    fave easily (with enough reps) fixed mistake:

    Arching back while doing back, side, spinning side/back, hook, spinning hook, wheel etc... That puts pressure the wrong way and makes the kick weak.

    Hunch, bend, look down side/body/arm at target. Or even look up.
    Good:

    Bad:

    That Akebono fight should be put on that Are high-kicks really useful? thread in Classics (I love high roundhouses!).

    And I even question if Andy Hug's favoritism towards axe kicks were worth it. I guess they were, but hardly any of us are talented enough to pull that sort of thing off.

    That's our fault.

    Have you seen his extended HL? He KO'd or knocked down mounds of guys with it. If he took the step, and they moved the wrong way....it was coming. I've been axe kicked in the skull, a couple of times...it was vierd. No sting, but insane downward clobbering sensation, and disorientation. I'm lucky I have a big thick English brick head (at least, the top half), and very little brain to damage.

    I still think Andy had the all-time best footwork in kick boxing...that I've seen. Like a fuckin Swiss gazelle with lateral rocket boosters, and big fists. Even his mustache could kick most guys asses.

    Yeah. You know, "hardly any" means "absolutely nobody"...

    ...just like "Some of you guys are Pu$$ies" means "Everyone who reads this thread has now been called a ***** and should respond with squeals of puny outrage".
