    Brazilian Kick: A Standard Muay Thai Technique?

    I uploaded a video of a brazilian kick being used in a MT fight (contenders latest ep) because it was so unusual to see it there.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Qug78E2oxY

    And one of the commenters said
    "Sorry to burst your respective bubbles but that is a pretty standard MT technique. He fakes a right frontkick, and then turns it into a roundhouse."

    Does he have substance in his claim? I've never seen it being used by MT practitioners before. Altough my sparring partner uses it to surprise me once in a while since he is ex-karate.

    I've never seen it, but I'm going to ask my trainer if he knows how to do it, because that looks stylish as hell. That's definetly getting added to the list of lower percentage moves I want to master, right under spinning back kicks.

    I've had that used on me more than once in sparring. I'm not sure of the origin, I haven't been taught. But it seems to be quite basic. I don't know what all the hurrah is about.

    Also, you will see that quite alot in arts such as TKD that use chambering.

    No reason to wow.

    From what I understand it's a kick that comes from the Dutch style of kick boxing, which is a combination of MT and kyoykashsyskysiskin(sp?) karate. My kickboxing instructor uses it all the time against me. It's very annoying.

    Listen don't ever call that a Brazilian kick again. It's a fucking standard kick used in fight for a long fucking time from various different styles.

    Yes I know it's a standard kick in a lot of styles, but I don't know the proper name for it. the japanese and english K-1 commentators call it a Brazilian kick since brazilian k-1 figthers like filho and feitosa have used it frequently.

    We learned that kick (late 80's) at our org's squad training. Some freestyle/kickboxers/jedis* showed us how to fake a front kick and then turn it into a round kick.

    The first time I saw it called a Brazilian Kick (LOL) was on a youtube tutorial posted by Kotoryu/Vikingpower about a year-ish ago.

    For the record, the official name for that kick is the "Twat! Where'd that come from?" kick.




    *true, one of them was an ex-student of Kevin "The Jedi" Brewerton
