    Axe kicks - What's your take?

    Effective kick that serves a purpose, or complete waste of time?

    Can you cause lots of damage with it fighting someone who's the same height or taller than you?

    Not many fighters use it, the one that I remember using it was Andy Hug.

    Have you ever seen anyone using an axe kick to effect a KO?

    I sucked at it too, but I wasn't sure if it was me or the kick (from my TKD days).

    Those who use it, where's your target? Face or collarbone?

    if you can do it sure... i can count the number of people i have seen who could use them effectively on one hand though. and they tend to be people who can make pretty much any kick work.

    I'd do one GSP style (like on Mayhem).
