    Instructional Preference?

    I am going to shoot a round kick instructional at the next Throwdown. I was planning on covering the basics of round kicks in general but I'm wondering if I shouldn't go a little deeper and just focus on low kicks. What would you guys like to see?

    Really? 86 people have read this and no one has an opinion?

    I would like to see anything you would be willing to post sir.

    For me basic mechanics would be great. Maybe differences in round kicks vs upward angle round kicks.

    Low kicks, how to create angles that would set up certain kicks, and then some drills for practicing the kicks!!

    Since you are taking requests!! Thanks!

    I won't be there, but if you want to put up your theories / ideas as to when a kick needs to happen and how, I'm definitely interested!

    IIRC, from videos and posts on here you have very good kicking power, learning how you generate said power in round kicks would be great.

    So right now I'm planning on focusing on Low kicks and mechanics for power. Angles and making openings is a bigger topic IMO. I will probably mention some basic combinations I like. I think landing any shot is about footwork and ring general-ship not the individual technique.

    USMTA teaches 3 angles and 3 heights for round kicks. I'm not going to follow that pattern because it isn't really the way I kick. I kick pretty hard for my size so I'm going to focus on what I do. Not an idealized MT kick or Karate kick or whatever. I throw a slightly more bent kick than classic Muay Thai which is probably from Shidokan's influence.

    One thing that is important to note is I throw sweep kicks differently than "pain" kicks. I'll probably mention both.

    That sweep part sounds useful, I've been jacking my foot up doing my shitty version.

    I had a few things I wanted to ask but I'm probably not going to be able to make it.
    But here is the list:
    Maintaining power and speed on high kicks, especially against taller opponents
    Setting up inside leg kicks for southpaws
    Setting up and delivering leg kicks to the opponent's rear leg

    Those two have been on my mind and if you were to help us with it, it would have been a very very valuable time for me if I was able to go.
