    If we're comparing kicks to punches, I'd say the lead leg roundhouse most like the left hook. It travels in an inward arc and is a good followup to a cross, plus you can ding someone good with it as your leading/entering attack if you throw it as someone else is coming in.

    If your lead leg round kick is longer range than your teep then you're doing something wrong from my perspective.

    I'm guessing from his JKDism that the lead round kick he's describing is done with the foot not the shin, tkd/savate style.

    Hence, the "from my perspective" part.

    It varies dependent on the target. Im more likely to use the ball of the foot on an inside leg kick or groin kick. For outside leg kicks, or attacks to the knee then the shin is used. Im not familiar with the term "Teep" could you offer some description or explanation?

    (OK since no one else will, and with my interpretation of the "new rules" thread in mind...)

    Wait a sec, don't you claim Muay Thai experience?
    You've seen fit to comment on the JKD/Thai thread and have it in your profile.

    While I have some Thai experience, Im not a Thai fighter. Also, linguistics has never been my thing. For example, I first learned to do a roundhouse in tkd, and I call it a roundhouse while many tkd practitioners use the korean name. As or saying "well you do jkd" thats correct, however, jkd differs rom school to scholl and student to student.

    Ah. If you would have said push kick or thrust kick I would have got it sooner.

    With that said, no this isnt your first attack option.The attacker must be closer for you to land this than he would have to be for a low leg kick. Try it. Have a partner stand in front of you and lift your leg up, straight in front of you. The first contact will be about shin level to your opponent. Mark the spot he is in and then reposition him for the thrust kick. He will be closer, unless your counting on the forward movement of the kick.

    However, if your relying on that thrust you are relying on the opponent to stand still, and also putting yourself in a bad position if the kick misses or doesnt land effectively.

    I never said that.
    I think you're a liar.
    Where did you take Muay Thai?
