    Because its easier to launch a lead leg side kick, hook kick, or snapping roundkick. Same reason TKD guys sometimes use that Bill Wallace hop-around-on-one-foot thing. I'm surprised you've never seen it in TKD; its quite common.

    Now don't throw a **** fit over the pic I'm going to use, but this is about the closest match I could find on bing to the fighting stance we used. It isn't exact, I think our feet may have been a little farther apart, but if I remember correctly it was a loose front stance. I hope my termenology is right it's been like 15 years.

    I should point out too that they were not really that particular about our fighting stance, the general rule of thumb was a stance that you could spar effectively from.

    The only time we ever really used the side stance was as a transition to throw a stop kick, I think TKD called it a jumpside??

    I used to wear King Gee Volleys (same design as Dunlop Volleys, except with a King Gee logo instead of the Dunlop) that were steel capped. Mothefuckers did not know what hit them.

    It was awesome, where I worked we sold them and that meant I bought them for around $25 a pair with employee discount. I practically bought a new pair every month, because when they were new they looked like clean white sneakers. Steel capped sneakers that had a "G" on the side with a crown. Fucking oath I rocked it like a gangsta.

    even if someone has shoes on (unless steel toe cap) a shin kick would destroy someone way more than kicking with shoes on - to be honest I'm not sure why most barefoot styles still train round house kicks with feet in stead of shins

    moral of the story;

    shin kick them in the leg

    I assume you have some proof to back this claim up right??

    Proof, seriously are you saying a kick with shoes on is more powerful than a shin kick? I'm talking round house in this instance. Sorry but a kick off someone with conditioned shins is worse than being foot round housed by someone with shoes on. Do you have proof other wise?
