    We were messing around with this today, and it's a sneaky little fucker. I can definitely see it being useful if you get really good at it. Any other Kyokushin guys on here use this or try it out?

    I do that one all the time. I learned it from a Bill "Superfoot" Wallace tape (because you know...it's not in Kung Fu). That initial kick really has them thinking low kick, or front kick. It took quite a while for me to develop the power, though. I had this real tippy tappy deal going on with it, until I started sparring bigger stronger guys. They would walk right through it and I would fall onto a barbell or a tool bench (we sparred in my Sifu's garage back in the day) and got sick of "scoring" with it and started working on making them respect the kick.

    I can't open my hips enough for it, and hit with my outside ankle as I'm almost turning away.

    We were shown it on a freestyle course... as you can imagine, it was something of a revelation for Shotokan practitioners. We first had to be convinced that "faking" the front kick didn't constitute some kind of cheating, and was still honourable.
    Then someone had to explain the concept of a round kick, and why at no point was a reverse punch utilised. Oh, the heady days of traditional karate.

    I too had problems with rotating my hips far enough round to make the kick anything more than pointless tippy-tappy ****. Another kick we were taught on the seminar was a side-kick fake to hook kick... and that definitely worked and for me, was more effective.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    I dig that kick, although I am not actually able to do it in any way that would threaten anybody. I am a fan of going the other direction though. IE - front fake or low roundhouse fake from the right, whip it back up and around to hit from the left with the instep. I did it when I started sparring in TKD and it worked really well, although to this day I don't know what it's actually called. With strong leg you can get some power into it and it's very quick.

    I seen and done it, but was unaware it had a special name. I thought it was just a fake low-to-high, or something.

    Gentleman, the key to the Brazil Kick is not that it is just a fake low kick to high kick. It is the angle at which the high round house scores. It comes down at an angle, rather than straight across.
