    I didn't see this kick like this in KK dojos, but there is a real appreciation in KK and other Japanese arts of the ability to pull off difficult techniques. There is even what I've heard called "beautiful" techniques in KK and other TMA karate, and they get judged highly. Andy Hug was the most famous KK fighter and was known for using innovative kicks. As far as I know, he was the first to win matches with things like axe kicks or once in K1, a spinning back wheel heel kick to the poor opponent's thigh. The kick slammed in like a 9 pound sledge hammer and the poor guy went into shock and just fell flat on the mat.

    I'm of the belief that pulling off cool **** should be celebrated. If he missed, well, he'd have to find a way to deal with it. But it worked, and we got a great video.

    Fighting the "right" way works up to a point, but if everybody's just doing the same thing, it's time to start using your imagination.

    It would've been stupid if he'd missed, but he didn't.

    True he did hit his target, but then again so do meteors from time to time. Look I'm all for fancy kicks, hell I started out in TKD, but that kick just seems silly IMO.

    Meteors are called meteorites if/when they hit the ground, because whether or not something hits makes a big difference.

    I enjoyed the knockout

    Even though I know I won't be pulling this move in a self-defense situation, but in a tournament you can have some fun pulling unorthodox moves

    Actually, this is a useful technique, not only in karate tournaments, but also in soccer (an online dictionary informs me that the English term is "bicycle kick"):
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)
