    After seeing Annabananna kick in her sparring video I've come to the conclusion that the only difference between her high round kick and and the KYokushin/TKD version is that she just keeps it there. ERGO she's full of ****.

Originally, it was taught similar to a tkd roundhouse, but not taught particularly well. However, this was a mistake(or more, a weakness in the kicking approach of the person who inplemented it), because everything in the close in work, which is the core of the style, is more in keeping with a muay thai approach. My teacher kept the tkd approach, mostly because he has short legs and personally enjoys beating the crap out of people with his fists anyway, but I use the muay thai approach, and, to my knowledge, am the only one of the people who uses the style who actually roundhouse kicks in fighting anyway.

    Wait, I forgot, my old teacher has a bunch of old animal boxing forms, the leopard boxing has a round kick that is definitely not an addition. It's old shaolin stuff. The application, if memory serves me correctly, is to step to the side with the lead leg to draw in the opponent and round kick as they move in. I never did the animal boxing stuff to any great extent, but it was definitely not a muay thai style kick, though I don't recall there being any chambering.

    Maybe it was a "triangle kick", sort of an circular front kick ?

    I remeber seeing a "triangle" kick in the five animlas form, dragon I think...it was a kick done as a counter to a punch or grab, the back leg stikes up and into the groin/lower abdomen in a "roundish" fashion.

    Not a roundhouse kick per se ( no turnong over of the hip and/or knee), but still, could be called one.

    I'm not a KK guy, but the ones that I have been hit with had a lot more chamber that what I usually see in the MT kicks. Both versions hurt like hell.

    KK low round is the same as the "Bent leg" round kick I learned from my first USMTA Muay Thai coach.
