    Is that the same kick that finishes this fight? It doesn't look like it can generate that much power, put it obviously can pack quite a punch (or kick).

    The Brazil kick comes from the high outside to hit downward. The one in this thread comes from the low inside to hit upward and outward.

    I've used this kick. I've known it as the "reverse roundhouse kick" but that same term has also been used for hook and wheel kicks.

    I usually set it up with a 1-2 (jab cross), full stepping offline with the cross, throwing the kick and then jabbing my way out offline. I've caught people with it, but like WhiteShark said, it is tricky getting past their guard. People just look at me funny when I do it.

    I now use it as a setup to get them to raise their guard and then turn the kick over to a side kick to go for the ribs. Again, setup for that is key which I'm still working on. I'll only try it once or twice in a sparring night. :-P

    I've used it, but rarely. In my experience, it's a decent kick to catch an opponent off guard, but extremely difficult to actually do any damage with. Like previous posters have said, for one thing if your opponent is using a decent guard, it's hard to land effectively. For another, since your hips begin by rotating one way, and the kick ends up changing direction at the last second, it also doesn't generate a whole lot of impact power.

    I use this alot during point sparring and MMA. It a great way to go from a leg kick to hands. You can hit or fake the rear leg leg kick, then do the inverted kick, set your foot down to the outside of your opponents lead leg then follow with hands. Hard part is it takes years of practice to actually get enough power behind the technique and you would get more power throwing a rear leg hook kick.

    It's not the reason I've never tried it, but yeah.

    Personally, if I tried this kick, I'd rip my groin at the very least. I'm not flexible like that. Not even close to like that. Rubber bodied people.....I'm jealous.

    I used to throw inside crescent kicks sometimes. It would surprise, as all my others come from outside, but had no power. It was more to affect the other person's reactions. I like Brazilian kicks, although again, not a whole heap of power, when I do it. More accurately, a slapping caress, from my finger toes.

    As he demonstrates, it sets up something else. Not intended as a knockout power strike by itself.
