    KFDW mentioned this once, "Just because it doesn't work for you, doesn't mean it doesn't work."

    I think this applies here. I've seen good kickers land good hook kicks.

    Nice shot. It can definitely be effective as was evidence in that clip. But if his opponent didn't dip his hands , and was a wrestler with a good shoot? Obviously this was a kickboxing match, so that wasn't a concern.

    It's got it's place and can it work. I just feel that it is quite a small place, and you've got to understand the liability that it introduces. If you understand that, and can still land one effectively, then more power to you.

    Good point. I never said the hook is 100% useless, just that it is not as powerful as other kicks can be. For me, the (front leg hook) doesn't work well, but that may be just my problem. I'll concede that. But I don't see a lot of front leg hooks being thrown around and K.O.ing people left and right either.

    Umm, wtf was the point of that? He wasn't making that as a statement, but as part of reasoning on another point of his. You get your jollies by taking random sentences out of context and making fun of them? Look how easily I can do the exact same thing to you:

    In a lot of his movies, Bruce Lee would use a stepping front-leg hook kick similar to his side kick to wack people in the head. But that was, of course, the movies.

    I'll admit that if you clock someone with your heel, and you have a wicked fast hook kick, you can do a little damage. But it's probably one of the most useless kicks in TKD. As someone mentioned, do a side kick or spinning hook kick instead.

    He is a she. It was a subtle joke. You're still retarded, because she can still live in Nashville and still be from Japan for all I know. It says location, not WHERE WERE YOU BORN/WHERE ARE YOU FROM?!?! Pwnt.

    Nice one, managing to completely fail to comprehend (or even read?) our exchange. My point was to demonstrate how completely asinine it is to take a sentence completely out of the context it was in and make fun of it. So you point out that my quote was part of a different context?

    That was the point, dumbass.
