    Kid, thanks a lot for posting these vids. I was going to search for MT kicking instructional material in the next month or two so you saved me the trouble. Thanks again.

    Serious question here folks:

    A guy at my gym who trained with Maurece Smith told me that when you kick, you should actually turn your head around and look behind you. I have NEVER seen anybody do it this way in training or fighting. I can't get ANY power out of it. Is anybody familiar with this technique? EDIT: Roundhouse kick.

    I noticed that he wasn't doing that in the video, either.

    I've never heard of turning your head behind you and I can't see how that would give you more power than getting your shoulders and hips to turn. I could see it as a drill to get someone to turn their hips over to kick through the target but even that's extreme.

    You don't see too many people doing this during fights, but it happens I guess. A lot of people will turn their heads while kicking pads and I'll do it sometimes when I'm really digging deep and still trying to kick the pad hard while my tank is empty. I'm guessing he's telling people to do it as a way to get people to turn their shoulder with their kick.

    I'd say that's more or less the idea, though telling people to turn their head seems a bit of a roundabout way of getting to the point.

    He also said a guy would stand behind them and show a random number of fingers and you were supposed to say how many he showed. I'm assuming turning was emphasized a lot then...

    I trust this guy, too. I mean, he said he did it for years and now he's a purple belt at my gym. He's not the type to spew BS, you know?

    And Maurice isn't exactly a n00b, either...
