    I kick pretty hard off my lead leg. It is not instant death but still.
    I do know a guy who does a cross between a round kick and a cresent kick off the front leg.

    Does anybdy kick out the calf?

    If you fight JKD style with your strong leg being your lead then I would think you could generate some real power.

    When some karate or boxer guy stands totally sideways with his legs far apart, I like this kick to the inner leg to set up punching combos. Snap it in there and slap someone just above the knee and see if their guard doesn't open.

    I'm a stiff old man, and can't kick anywhere near that high, but my kid is really crafty with sneaking it in to the jaw with decent power.

    Not every strike has to be a "power hit" in sparring. Unless you subscribe to the one-hit one-kill mentality. The lead leg roundhouse is a great setup. Similar to the jab. I don't see many people getting knocked out with a jab.

    Lead leg mawashi geri to the inside thigh is very effective in weakening the opponent. It's fast so they don't see it coming. To the face or head would take a lot more speed but would certainly be a surprise opening up for another attack. I've been on the receiving end usually but working on it using it myself.

    That's something like what I do. I raise my leg, turn it right ways (I fight right leg forward), circle it to the left and kick. I like the regular round house though, because I want ro use 'proper' form in my kick. This just helps generate more power. I kick the upper thigh or lower body.

    I like it for this too against someone in the same stance. Inside leg kick as they step forward followed by a straight. The kick opens their guard right up no matter how tight they usually are and often throws off their balance too which they need in order to attack.

    Against someone in the opposite stance i used to use it like Kintanon does but i found good fighters made me pay for over-using it.

    These days on the rare opportunity i get to do MMA sparring i go to the head with it unswitched mid-combo or while retreating and I land it more often than not. Powerwise it is fine, i've unintentionally dropped other fighters with it while wearing shinpads.

    I like it as a liver shot , waiting for him to come in with a cross i lean to the right away from the punch and kick his midsection. if he fired a good cross he twisted his body and the kick really really hurts. Its best practiced with a midsection shield belt thing on the attacker. He comes in with a jab cross combo in a free moving set and you try to time it. When you wear the belt and if he times it just right you will see that it hurts. The only drawback is in MMA , he may catch it and drop you, so learn your bjj.

    I use that trick with my rear kick (souhpaw), its a good counter if you time it right.
