    Two points:
    1. I guess I wear really baggy pants or something but I have never really found my pants to be much of an impediment from kicking however high I like. I guess I'm too much of a child of the 90's or something with my non-skintight pants ;)
    2. What makes a good high kick is not grappling skill. It's kicking skill. I'd be more confident using high kicks vs. a grappler if I was any good at grappling, but you don't HAVE to be Bas Rutten for them to work, especially against a non-grappler. In MMA matches you will regularly see people get away with high kicks without being punished, do you really want me to draw up a list? If the debate is "are they useful" the answer is a sound YES. It's not like they're jabs or something but FFS, don't degenrate this into a shouting match over something so obvious.

    I used to rip my jeans, now I just wear my gi everywhere.

    Personally, I favour low, simple kicks, especially to the knee joint

    Yeah, your right. Being a smart ass to a stranger over a keyboard is such a great skill. If only everyone was as good at it.

    Likewise, although I may be biased since my flexibility has gone all to hell in the last three years (in exchange for upper body strength, somehow...)

    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...2&postcount=45 = a nice one, in the avatar.

    So is there consensus in this:

    High-kicks are very useful, but only if you can do them.
