    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    It's pretty obvious that Omar doesn't care to take advise on his kick. Omar, your kick is a wuss kick. The fact that your bruise your partner only means that he bruises easily. You are fighting the laws of physics with your kick, thus it will never be as powerful as it could be. Step in the same direction as your kick and it will gain the mass of your body, use your hips, and it will have the least resistive path to the target, pivot your foot and you won't wreck your knees with torque fatigue.

    On, and **** you, Omar. If I wanted to troll, I'd really troll your thread. Until now, I did not insult you, I just criticized your technique. Your kicks couldn't start a motorcycle.

    one thing you seem to do is that your leg is fully extended when you hit your opponent. you watch people who can REALLY kick and they don't do this, the leg is bent. the target isnt the surface, its about 6 inches in. the apeshit arms you explained but still it isnt neccessary, if you are going to do a video you shouldn't do things like that and then make excuses for it. you could at least, when you throw one arm back, cover with your shoulder.

    Im not going to say anything about your power in those kicks. any chance of getting a video of you hitting a heavy bag or some pads at full strength? I know you are against their use for whatever reason but they didnt look powerful to me.

    and the reason I could see that you managed to uproot your opponent when he kicked is because he had a crap kicking technique.

    thaiboxerken- shut the **** up already, if you knew anything about muay thai you would know that not pivoting isnt wrong, its just another method. unless you are trying to say that people like Ramon Dekkers are doing it wrong as well. either way you are a blithering idiot.

    I meant Reese, not you.

    -pivot : Ikken pretty much said what I thought on that one.

    -flexion of the abdomen : Hm....I almost want to put some "regular" kicks up against pads and see what you guys think. Everytime we get one of these "how do you roundhouse" threads I end up thinking that really the Muay Thai way is pretty much just how I learned in TKD. I got the same impression when I actually did Muay Thai for a bit. I'm relating it to this thing about the abdomen because I think it's much easier to bring that part in when you are doing a kick that whips out instead of kind of clubbing someone like I am doing. I'll think about it some more. I think it would be fun to make clips of like the maybe 3 variations on a basic round kick that I know. At the very least it would separate some of what I can or can't do from what I do or don't do like the pivot. That's no big deal. I make a concious choice not to pivot. The abs...hadn't thought about that. I use a fair bit of waist but that's not the same.

    -extension of the knee joint : That's just another name for chambering. I promise when I get home from work later today I'll put up a vidcap showing that my leg bends about 90 degrees in the middle of the kick, You think it's more powerfull when you bend it all the way?

    Well, from the footage Ive seem of Dekkers, Id say he pivots a little... Anyway, you just have to make sure your reaqr knee is not facing the target when you throw the kick to avoid injuries.

    The way I do it includes a small step towards de outside, in a 45 angle, and a slight, almost unperceptible pivoting.

    You have to pivot at least a little.

    I thought I wasn't pivoting at all untill I took the video and single framed advanced it.. .
