    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    this is confusing, but to my understanding
    roundhouse type 1 - muay thai full body swing
    roundhouse type 2 - chambered snapping kick
    type 1 is a much more powerful kick than type 2
    type 2 is a much faster kick than type 1 and is usually used in point sparring.

    That's how I understand it.

    What do others feel about TKD's side kick? I have seen people split a punching bag in half using a side kick. I know of one circumstance where an instructor in TKD split someones stomach open with a side kick. they guy challenged and attack the instructor and he side kick the guy. The instructor had to call an ambulance and make a ploice report after. It was one of my friends TKD instructor that did it.

    I seriously doubt a blunt trauma from a human could split a person's abdominal cavity open...

    And yes they can be powerful, but there is no "perfect" technique. Bringing up the knee to block a mid side kick seems the most obvious one to me... my shin versus a sliver of your foot - which do you think will win? Now, if shoes are on its gonna be a lot different, of course, so its more important to learn other ways of dealing with it.

    The point I'm trying to make is you can learn how to deal with any technique, no matter how powerful it is. There is no perfect technique - powerful ones tend to telegraph, and a long range kick tends to do that too.

    Yeah, side kicks can split bags open, but bags are built differently than human stomachs.

    But yes, a side kick is very dangerous. It can be used effectively with proper footwork and the proper setup, but the danger. A side kick to the knee or hip would disable the person for the remainder of the fight, a kick to the chest or the stomach knocks the wind out of the person.

    What are some other defences for the side kick?

    With a powerful side kick it's best to try to get completly out of the way either by sidestepping or backing up to the best of your ability. It is not a great kick to try to absorb or block.

    Cast in the name of God. Ye not guilty.

    Dodging it is your best bet. Unless it's just a short snap kick to your knee, you can dodge it and have enough time for your counter-offensive

    You tend to let someone know if you are about to do a great big side kick, so the best thing to do is nip it in the bud by checking the kick with a front stamp before its thrown, or getting in their face, or getting out of the way. Barefoot, yeah, you could make them break their foot on your knee/shin, but thats not a nice thing to do, now is it? And if they have shoes on... thats better than letting it impact more vulnerable parts of you. But its still not the best way to handle it.
