    Agreed. Jackson didn't have an answer for the kicks the entire match. Largely due to Jones' absurd reach advantage, but the point still stands.

    Straight kick to the knee is actually a very good technique to maintain distance in Taekyun matches. It's not an auto-knee-buster, but I've seen people get hurt when they run straight into the kick.

    However I've been discouraged from using it in Kudo and MMA training. So for all this time I thought the move was illegal?

    When performing a kick to the knee, the foot should be perpendicular to the leg, either facing in or out.

    Are you trying to blow a ligament? If so, attacking the posterior surface at an angle works the best--I have seen more ACL blowouts from that (either training accidents, or from tackles in football/rugby gone wrong) than any other method.

    Legal in unified rules MMA. Jon Jones does them a lot, Anderson Silva did it to Thales Leites, Brandon Vera to Keith Jardine (gif). There is whining on the internet every time, but it's yet to lead to a serious or match-ending injury in MMA that I'm aware of.

    The only time such kicks result in an injury is when the receiving person has poor footwork.

    People at my Kudo dojo were all dissing Jon Jones about how 'cowardly' he was, and I was the only one there that was like "what? whats wrong with that?"

    Sorry could you clarify how you would strike the back of the knee during a sanda/mma match.

    Most competitors point the front knee forward. So I would find the back of the knee hard to strike. Unless I'm completely missing something here (which I could very well be)

    It would be pretty unlikely. If your opponent was in a position to kick the back of his knee, there'd be other, juicer, options beckoning. Hence, the lack of examples of guys crippled in the ring by knee strikes.

    It's always been kind of a gentlemen’s agreement between fighters, basically you don't kick my knees I won't kick yours. Same thing goes for foot stomps, they're legal but most don't do them.

    I would also like to add that I am a huge, huge fan of the chasse to the thigh right above the knee as a distance-control technique, and think it's totally under utilized.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
