    I mean... side kick pops up infrequently in a lot of people's arsenals, even pure Thai boxers. It's just not a staple move for most. The obvious exception is SanDa fighters in MMA. I bet you see it all the time in China's thing: OneFc

    I would suspect the answer has to do with take downs.

    I'm good. Omega has it covered. It's called, "Knee you in the stomach until it doesn't hurt anymore."

    Pretty effective. My liver and spine have been introduced only once since the first lesson.

    Easy answer: Nobody trains them. They're hard to use if you don't know how to combo into or out of them. 90% of MMA dudes and K-1 dudes train in Muay Thai gyms which don't really use side kicks.
