    that's because the WTF trains kicks wrong, flat out. it's all a symptom of the ruleset and safety equipment.

    thai pads meaning those forearm ones that coaches wear?

    i usually spend my time training kicks on either a) a live target or b) a punching bag or c) airshields. i've found "porkchops" to be the worst kind of kicking targets, unsurprisingly the WTF guys i've spent time with all use those. the trick is to train ALL kicks for penetration. all the right characteristics then fall into place.

    If you lock it, you know they'll just start another.

    It's the same discussion over and over and over again. At least once per month and spaulding can't find the threads, probably because he doesn't know how to use the search function correctly or he's being lazy.

    I have pictures of old school MDK guys training on Thai pads and when they couldn't afford them (Korea was pretty poor post-War) catchers' mitts for punches. Yup, punches.

    The paddles came about with the advent of modern WTF sparring, and originated when a coach pulled the insoles out of his shoes to provide a target for his team.

    Were records still around when he was born?

    I get the feeling if I make a joke about my old .45s, he'd think I was talking about handguns.
