    How does one do that? I mean, the attacker has already lifted their leg to kick, how do you get your own sole higher than theirs?

    BTW, in Filipino sipa means kick, nothing else. More of a roundhouse or flicking kick. 'Tadyak' on the other hand, is a stomping action, e.g. a teep. The oblique kick is more of a tadyak.

    If a person is in a job dealing with the possibility of multiple belligerents, it can be a very useful capacity.
    I think they call them destructions in FMA and JKD, which I always thought was a hardcore name. It's an easy body of technique to overlook, since pads will mitigate their effects. It doesn't matter whether you block a straight right with your forearm or the point of your elbow when the other guy has gloves on.
    The chasse, hitting with an unpadded part of the foot, is quite vulnerable to this. I got my foot spiked on knees a few times sparring the other day, and it made me a lot more hesitant to throw them.

    "Destructions."

    Hmmm. Time for a style-field name change?

    Couldn't be any more...um, brilliant...than that one I saw a couple of years back on this forum:

    "OWNAGE."

    Yep, all-caps.

    We love this kick in my style/school. For us it's the peet cha gi, or diagonal kick. Plenty of good stuff has been said about it, though I would add that if you work it a bit you can use it to good effect against the ribs, so the defense is naturally just a good rib cover with your elbows. Also, you can throw this to the outside of the knee if you work angles and circle out, so be wary of this against your low targets. Pretty much the same defense as against the thigh kick here, lift your leg. You can also try to angle your knee to take it straight, which is a quick counter, but a little harder and riskier. Next to front, round, and side kicks, this might be the one I throw the most.

    So I train Wing Chun is these are actually the main kicks we train. Against an Oblique kick to your legs you lift the leg and use either your knee or shin to parry it to either side away from you left or right or you just move it out of the way. If the kick is coming at your abdomen then you sidestep and parry it away from you with your arm. It's a very effective kick because it's linear, fast, and annoying to defend against(as you might be able to tell, when Jon Jones uses it MMA fighters don't really know what to do against it yet).

    Check it with the patella. That's all you can do - with a nasty counter.

    I went to a seminar earlier today that was mostly use oblique kicks to counter other things, and at the end of it, I asked about countering the oblique kick itself. He showed this funky club knee to the inside of the kicking leg, which I wish I could describe better because I am having a hard time even envisioning it myself right now.
    But anyway, apparently that's an idea out there that might be worth toying with.
