    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Other low kicks

    I think it's pretty much agreed upon that most of the time, if your gonna kick, kick low or maybe midsection. However, it seems like everybody that kicks low only uses the roundhouse. From my experience, it seems like even if it doesn't hit the person, low front kicks & instep kicks (aiming towards the shin) work well at keeping them away till your ready to close. Also, a couple of times in close, I've been able to stagger & charlie-horse the person w/ a heel kick to the calf. Does anybody else work with these or other low kicks? Or is there a good reason why 99% percent of low kicks are rounds?

    Just wondering

    How Do Low Kick ?

    Spar some ... thinks about your sparing ... review your sparing tape . Then tell us why a good number of kicks are rounds ...

    *edit*
    Though personal I throw alot of front kicks , chicken kicks , and push kicks along with my rounds ...

    Could be. What do you mean by an "instep kick" though?

    My guess is that round kicks are trained most by the people you comonly see doing them.

    sorry bout being so vague...what I'm calling an instep kick is something we do at our school...leg/foot motion is almost like the blocking ankle throw in judo, where the arch/instep of your foot blocks low on their shin/high on the ankle...except it's done with a lot more driving force

    arch = arch

    instep=top near ankle

    I think you mean what we call a chicken kick ... and the contact point on that kick should be much closer to , if not the heel itself ... not the middle of arch ....

    You can certainly throw snapping frontkicks under and into the kneecaps, but then you're just a dick. We have an old crazy guy in the Karate class who does it.

    throwing a teep into the top of someones leg is a pretty common technique in some places. real common in savate, seen it end fights. can be tricky to practice with in sparring because of the chance of smacking out someones knee.

    We've practiced this kick in my thai class and I was simply unable to generate any force with the kick because it always turns into that awkward wing chun-esque oblique kick...
