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.

Hey Korean Dragon dude, respond to my post or face gong sau! You started this and I expect you to respond, soon. I put (a little) thought into my post and I hope that you respond."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez

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.

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.
