    In conclusion, **** Aesopian.

    Thank you.
    Just because the reverse omoplata is too awesome for you doesn't make it low percentage.

    Agreed...and you don't throw away the fight by going for it.

    I've been thinking about this more than one should think about anything posted on bullshido.

    It's a damn fine idea!

    And after much thought, I say; Vote Mr. Mantis for Strikeistan over-seer.






    I was thinking about making this it's own thread, but it was started in here.

    When I did TKD, I had a killer Crescent kick. Seriously. I still had so damn much flexibility and hip power from doing Ballet and Yoga as a kid that I could feint a low kick, then snap high with a crescent, heel, side, etc. right from day one in TKD. Use to catch new sparring partners off guard the first couple of times, but then it was worthless because they would know it was coming. I could fire off crescent's back to back like a weird machine gun windmill, too. Never used it in a real fight. In streetfights the adrenaline and fear and anger threw my fine motor control out the window and I would keep my feet on the ground for balance, and throw punches. Plus, I almost broke my own ankle practicing crescent kicks on a metal pole.

    Wow. You overloaded the fag-o-meter.
    That's harsh. Shame on you, taekwondo boy.

    Uh, I dropped TKD for Taijutsu, then dropped that for JKD, FMA, and Shooto. Besides, I was forced by my authoritarian parents to do Ballet and Yoga for my fallen arches as a kid. I wasn't allowed to do Karate because my folks were also Christian Pacifists. Gee, no wonder I had so much anger as a teen that I crescent kicked metal poles and punched brick walls and practiced with bokkens so much I broke two of 'em. So **** all y'all.

    (I thought the fagometer was funny, but it's like getting hit by a car; it's only funny as long as it's not happening to you.)

    Someone once told me that the axe kick was more of a "finisher" than a standard technique. Lets say you do a spinning back kick and the guy starts to recoil and double over, thats when you'd launch one. I think it was a TKDer I talked to. I cant remember

    After you use the spinning back kick, and they double over, you clinch and knee, or punch them in the face.

    ****...a spinning back kick followed by a flying knee, an elbow to the spine and a flying omoplata is a more reasonable application of viable technique.
