    Surely if Andy Hug can do it then I can too.

    Wait...

    I forget, but there's some difference between Andy Hug and I. Oh yeah, he's a kabillion times more talented than me. Nice.

    It's also very inhumane to whatever jeans you're wearing, I found out once.

    There are a few clips on that site of people getting knocked out with sidekicks. I was pretty surprised too the first time I saw.

    It's not the side kick that I'm curious about to be honest, it's the "shuffle" part. I can't find the damn magazine, it's an article about "Defendo" and the man mentions training in TKD prior to that and having a "mean sideways shuffle kick"

    The name itself screams comic imagery.

    The shuffle normally refers to the sideways step taken before/while throwing the kick. Different styles do it differently.

    When I hear shuffle, it makes me think that it's a hop/lunge with the planted leg. I used to use this kick many eons ago, so let me see if I can describe it.

    Stand in conventional left lead. Chamber lead left leg for side kick turning slightly sideways, and push off with your planted right leg. This should all happen nearly simultaneously. You should hop/shuffle/lunge forward a little, then stomp the left leg to stick the sidekick.

    This would be as opposed to stepping forward with the rear leg first, then chambering your lead right, or switching leads, both of which are a little more conventional.

    It can work. A buddy of mine broke my ribs using a shuffle sidekick. But like any sidekick, if your opponent is good with his footwork he can slip it and take your back pretty quickly. Just something to watch out for.

    The shuffle telegraphs like hell.

    I hate people who can just bring their leg up and still generate power in their kicks cause I tend to just walk right into them.
