    This kick is also in Kun Tao, where we step out at a 45 degree angle prior to kicking. This helps find the proper angle for penetration.

    It's also not as "round" as a muay thai kick or old school karate kick. It's supposed to be rising kick delivered at a 45 degree angle to the target (at least in Kun Tao), so the overall effect of angling out and rising at the target makes the kick look more angular than round.

    So, if roundhouse kicking with the ball of your foot has all you pansies whimpering about what a bad idea it is, dare I ask what you manly men (and women) think of Uechi-ryu's front toe kick?

    While I have shitty toe flexibility myself and can't do this yet, I've been popped on one or two occasions with one and I gotta say, it is a pretty shitty thing to get hit with, as because of how you're getting kicked it seems to penetrate a lot more. Only one of the guys I train with though can do it, and he has freaky toe flexibility. If you're still banging your toes after this many years, it's time to try something new.

    EDIT: It depends on where you're getting kicked though, I imagine. Both times I got nailed on the ribs and it hurt a lot worse than a regular shin kick, but if you're kicking at anything harder than the floating ribs I'd use a shin.

    As much as i appreciate your zeal in the defense of the traditional versions of some techniques, you done fucked up.

    Ms. Spatula is in no way a sissy, wussy or any other insulting term for someone adverse to pain. She is if anything a masochist.

    Yeah, thanks for that. Glad to have been shown the error of my ways finally, I was WAY off base on that one... :eusa_clap
