    It's not really a "power" kind of kick. It's all leg. Since your targeting a pretty tender spot with your heel, it doesn't take much. Plus it's one of those things that you don't really see coming so much.

    Either that or take like a maaann and grumble 'I like it'
    Well, when I did it, it was from the clinch, so the guy really just wasn't gonna counter it.

    Being a shotokan't kinda guy, it was always the ball of the foot. Very easy to measure distance etc, cos the guy in front of you just stood there, or at the very least, performed a lunge punch so you could hold onto his arm to steady yourself...
    One I discovered the awesome power of shin on thigh/calf/ribs it was shin all the way. If I couldn't reach with the shin, I didn't throw the kick.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    Josh Thomson uses that tactic a lot, and the AKA guys call it a scorpion kick.
    I only mention that because it's such a sexy name.

    Why the hell do kicks get all the cool names? How come no "Merciless Spinning Elbow Strike" or "Stingray Knee?"

    (Yea, I'm aware those aren't that cool names, But you get the idea)

    you're just not looking in the right places if you can't find other strikes with exotic names.

    According to Beautiful Boxer, the spinning elbow is referred to as "Giant twirls the Earth" in muay boran manuals, and I'm sure there are plenty of other techniques in there with crazy names.

    I was aware of those names, it's just that I thought those were literal/direct translations, and used more for poetic flourish than actual terminological use . Speaking Chinese myself, I know they have a tendency to sound exotic and exaggerated when directly translated. I have no experience in Thai though, so your word is probably worth more than mine here.

    That is a cool name though. I always thought those terms used in Ong Bak and such were more for dramatic effect.

    Remember in Ong Bak, where Tony Jaa steps on the knee of the crazy French fighter and knees/kicks him in the head?
    What was that called? Hanuman crosses the city? King crosses the city? For that matter which move was it?
    It's somewhere around here: http://www.thai-boxing.org/2006/05/2...-ask-movement/
