    maximum amount of force behind a round house

    I've been googling for the answer and I can't find it, this guy keeps bringing up that the maximum amount of force behind a Roundhouse kick is 2000lbs. I disagree. Anyone care to elaborate on the subject?

    BRIDGEKEEPER: What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
    ARTHUR: What do you mean? An African or European swallow?
    BRIDGEKEEPER: Huh? I-- I don't know that! Auuuuuuuugh! [ explodes and dies ]

    So is your question for a chambered roundhouse kick or just a roundhouse?

    My point involves that and the second part.. who cares? I'm not sure you could give an accurate maximum. What if some guy was a freak that could kick harder then any ninja ever born? Also, consider the roundhouse of a TKD fighter vs the roundhouse of a MT fighter. Each kick would have a different maximum (I would assume) due to the difference in the mechanics of the kicks.

    The maximum amount of force behind a roundhouse kick is just enough to knock you out. Ask him why he should be concerned with the rest of the force if he is unconscious.

    Maybe you should checkout that XMA program they aired on Discovery channel. In the first one they were measuring the forces behind some of the kicks.

    Clearly, the maximum amount of force you can deliver with a roundhouse kick is only achieved when that roundhouse kick is thrown by Chuck Norris. If you aren't Chuck Norris, why would you bother?

    Two of the greatest evils in the world meet... XMA and the Discovery channel.
