    Re. high kicks in self defence, although I would never advocate them, I'm reminded of something that happened to a TKD BB friend of mine back in the early '80s. He was a tournament champion and had very fast kicks.

    A man with a knife had walked into the rear of a local dress shop and threatened a woman working there. She screamed and he ran out of the store. She followed him out of the store, yelling for someone to stop him. My buddy was on the scene and ran around the block to head the guy off, meeting him straight-on - no kidding - directly in front of the TKD dojang. The guy goes for his knife. My buddy hits him with a JUMPING, SPINNING BACK KICK TO THE UPPER CHEST, which knocks him down, then gets him in a leg lock on the sidewalk, helped out by another man who had been chasing the knifer down the street from the other direction. They restrained him until the police arrived.

    It made front page news the next day - "Tae Kwon Do fells fleeing attacker" - although the police report described what my friend had used as a "flying Tae Kwon Do hold" :icon_mrgr
    He was also a kind of celebrity in the dojang for a while after that.

    True story, so although I'd still never teach or recommend this sort of reaction in a real fight, it pays to remember that all sorts of bizarre **** can work under the right circumstances.

    High kick=/=Axe kick

    Some high kicks don't suck. The axe kick isn't one of them.

    Sorry, it had to be posted, courtesy of feedback on the GSP-Matt Hughest thread in iCompete.

    I guess this clip proves that high kicks work at least some of the time for guys like GSP...but I know I'm not going to be landing kicks like that any time soon...

    So if some high kicks don't suck and axe kicks aren't one of those, axe kicks suck?

    signed, Mr. Confused (and since I'm a big Andy Hug - the master of axe kicks - fan), and since I have a scar on my forehead from one, you can imagine where I stand on axe kicks.

    Well, I can't imagine having extra moves in your inventory can ever really be a bad thing. I've won a couple of fights in my day with a few swift kicks to the head, and I've lost few to swift kicks in the head=).

    funny how their hands are down near their legs the whole time.... funny how that's why that kick got in.... funny how hard he went down for it though!
