    You've been provided with plenty of good advice.
    Give them something to think about before you do what you really want to do.
    Its great for setting up combos. But don't get into the habit of throwing it lazily either because that can result in injury very easily.

    Slightly different way of looking at this- I got injured in my left leg, and would stand left leg forwards to throw my strongest cross; however obis don't want to put the injury in the firing line, so best to stand with it back and not kick with it. Whilst not necessarily devastating, a lead kick to a side of knee or femoral nerve can hurt like a mother, and distract the opponent whilst you crack him one in the jaw...

    A jab is not a power punch but it is vital to a boxer. The front leg roundhouse is the jab of kicks. It doesnt need power, that gets replaced with speed and snap. Id strongly suggest more training for turning your back on it.

    Purely anecdotal here, but during my level 1 grading for JKD I landed a lead leg roundhouse on my sparring partner and he had trouble walking for about a week after. I'm not sure what I hit, but it indicates to me that it works.

    Front leg round kick is NOT A JAB! Stop saying that. It can be thrown light like a jab but it absolutely doesn't have to be. There are plenty of KOs off the lead leg kick. Anyone ever hear of this guy Mirko Crocop?

    What I posted was not in reference to the power of the kick, simply that it is a vital tool for a person who uses kicking in their art.

    It still isn't "the jab of kicks" because it doesn't maintain or create space like a jab. If you have to invent a false parallel the front kick or Teep is a better analog.

    I humbly disagree. And it may simply be a difference in personal style, but I use the lead roundhousemore than anyother kick.

    The first available weapon to a kicking fighter is the lead leg roundhouse to the opponents lead leg.This is the first available attack.Before you are in range to do anything else, you can do this, this will maintain distance. No one wants to reapeatedly take blows to the legs.

    To me, it looks more like the backfist of kicks than a jab. The only parallel that I can draw between the jab and this kick is the snap effect. As you say, it doesn't maintain or create space (ranging aspect) like a jab. Although this was one of the primary kicks we trained to spar with, it has limited use. I like to take it low as a leg kick or a sweep, but bringing it above the thigh, I telegraph mine horribly.
