    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.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    "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.
