    Leg kicks are not allowed in TKD.

    Except for front kicks, I don't strike with my feet, and a pair of sneakers doesn't have enough weight to really add that much force, frankly. What they do is give you better traction, so you are less likely to slip and fall during a rumble. And they protect your feet from needles, rocks, and lava.

    No the reality is you should practice in yours shoes because if you end up in a tussle, are you really going to kick off your shoes like some asshole? I hope not.

    Personally, I kick off my shoes and stretch before every street fight. Doesn't everyone?

    When I practiced TKD we did leg kicks all the time, are you referring to point sparring??

    Attacking below the waist is not allowed in Olympic TKD sparring, which seems to be the general standard for TKD. Are you talking about sparring or just training? Seems to me that the common TKD stance is particularly vulnerable to leg kicks.

    We never did Olympic style sparring or any variety of point sparring, it was mostly power kicks instead of the snappy ones. We did low kicks as part of our sparring. What do you mean by the common TKD stance?? Mostly our stance for fighting was hands up boxing type with wider legs.

    I'm talking about a wide sideways stance:

    Being sideways makes leg kicks harder to defend because you have to swivel your hips square to leg check properly. Being wide makes leg kicks harder to defend because you need a larger weight shift to defend as well.

    Now that I can understand as far as being a retarded stance, however I don't think I have ever sparred anyone TKD or otherwise that has fought from that extreme a stance.
    Why are their feet sideways like that?? Now I will say I have seen my share of bad fighting stances from my TKD days, hell even some UFC fighters seem guilty of it, but never anything close to that.
