leg kicks vs. TKD
Ahh Kempoist, you've brought up a subject I am very interested in, that that is the comparason of 70's rules kickboxing vs. well... 90's rules kickboxing. Basically, USA 70's rules kickboxing was essentially boxing rules + a rule that said you had to throw something along the lines of 3 kicks per round... and no leg kicks were allowed.

To me, I don't see that big of a difference between 70's kickboxing and full-contact TKD competition, at least as far as the kicking technique is concerned (obviously there's a lot more punch in 70's kickboxing than in full contact TKD.)
Any thoughts about TKD vs. 70's kickboxing vs. leg-kicks-legal kickboxing?
