    How Do Attack the Knee?

    I'm arguing with an idiot on another forum. I need vids of legal knee strikes in combat sports. I'm thinking particularly of a sanda match in a boxing ring, where one guy leaps and stomps the top of his opponent's knee, who shows no obvious reaction. I think it's in a full-contact kung fu or something thread.

    Well I remember Keith Hackney throwing some kicks at Emmanuel Yarborough that looked like solid side kicks to the knee and they had no effect, but that's kind of a weird example. You might want to look into some savate footage for low chasse kicks.

    Cool, I forgot about savate, because it's French.

    ha Emanuel Yarborough was to fat to have knees or elbows for that matter. Just fat glands and cholestorol deposits inbetween the bones

    Give the Jon Jones vs. Quinton Jackson match a try. Jones used a lot of front kicks towards Jackson's thighs, getting close to Jackson's knees, and never once was stopped by the referee.

    For reals. I think that Jones has demonstrated that straight kicks to the legs are viable attacks, without being some magical knee-exploding super move.

    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    IIRC Royce used kicks to the knees before shooting for the legs in old UFC matches.

    I think striking the oponents knee with your face while laying on you back is no longer legal
