    thats a really cool kick. i wish i knew someone who did it so i can stop horribly immitating it. its like impossible for me to learn a technique without someone telling me im doing it wrong 12,000 times. i wish i could watch a video and pick things up like that.

    Dunno... I'd have to imagine him in a unitard to be sure... and I really can't bring myself to do that.

    It dosen't really, anyway, just a little bit in the redirection. A savate kick would be a toe strike, likely.

    I had a TKD'er surprise me with that like 12 years ago. I made up for it by making him eat straight blasts in the face everytime he stepped in. He then pouted and lectured me about "control." It's funny how everytime someone rushes me with their hands down and my lead jab ends up in their face I have "bad control."

    When I did TKD, I loved low feint, high kick stuff. Or just low to high double kicks. Like the sidekick to the knee, then sidekick to the face. Or the sidekick to knee, hook kick (heel kick) to temple. Or left round kick to knee, followed by jumping right round kick to head. I was good at all of those, but the front kick to groin followed by a round kick to the temple actually was really hard for me to do. I used to have this crazy thing that everybody fell for; front kick feint to groin, followed by an outside crescent kick to head. I don't even know how I used to get my hips to do that, I just know I can't hardly do it now. Oh well, I have better hands and grappling now. Or, ya know, a stick.

    Again, the Brazilian kick is not a low to high kick.

    It can be done without faking the low kick, and just throwing it high.

    The key to the Brazilian kick is that it comes at a downward angle.

    Doesn't it just become a MT-like jodan mawashi geri when you do it full speed? (which is good but nothing out of the ordinary).

    The Yam Yaw kickboxers from the Phillipines have a round kick that hits with the shin. It looks like they do it in MT, but it goes up, then comes down as it snaps. They call it the "Mountain Storm Kick." Apparently the downward motion uses gravity as an aid and is more powerful. They also claim that MT stole their techniques, and didn't even bother to get them right.

    I hardly ever go for kicks to the head these days, but if I did, I imagine that would be the best way to go, because of the entry, and the angle at which it comes in.
