    Riiiight... yeah I'll get a video of it up to show you what I mean. Just because you can't do it obviously means that it isn't possible. Listen, I can do it, It just takes footwork and is an actual full positioned sidekick where I end up facing sideways.

    it's a rediculous response to a blanket statement. It's like someone saying "Nobody uses wing chun in the ufc!" and then referring to that fat guy that got beat up by Mark Coleman in one of the first UFC's to refute that point.

    edit: actually it's kinda dumber because Genki Sudo breakdances in MMA and K1

For example, If I am in a standard fighting stance with my left leg forward, and I am going to do s thrust kick/side kick with my right leg, I chamber my right leg, so I am standing fully on my left leg, then I simultaneously (sp? gag I'm bad) rotate my supporting foot 180 degrees counter-clockwise, which causes the hips and torso to also rotate clockwise, while the leg thrusts out in a strait line.
    I know exactly what you're talking about. That kick is used in a lot of arts, mine included. What I'm saying is the rotational force does not contribute to the power of the kick because the final thrusting motion is not at a tangent to the circle that represents the direction of rotational force. You generate a lot of momentum while spinning, but it all stops when you come to that 180 and thrust out perpendicularly to the angle of momentum. See attached diagram.

    Well some of our Sanda guys have used sidekicks effectively in Muay Thai competition... still I'm pretty sure we still use roundhouses more.

    My opinion: roundhouse > sidekick
    but sidekick still isn't obsolete when trained right.

    It would be more dignified if you just admitted you were WRONG.

    In light of the advancements in live combat in the last 15 years, performing a side kick from a forward-facing stance. seems a little short-sighted.

    That is of course you are just playing tag...:icon_flow

    I don't think sidekicks are stupid; they have their place.

    You use them when your opponent is perpendicular to your side.

    They work quite well esp. when aimed low to check your opponent's advancements.
