    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What, in the name of Science, are the following:

    Sideways Shuffle kick: I've heard this mentioned a few times, by TKD practioners, I can basically visualise somebody shaking their leg and jumping up and down with a moronic expression on their face. What exactly is it?

    Axe kick: I'm assuming this requires bringing one's leg straight up and then straight down?

    could the first be a shuffle sidekick?

    If you did that sidekick over and over while sliding forward on your support leg?
    It was hella hard finding sidekick videos, cuz everyone was whoring their lame Sidekick cellphones.

    If by shuffle sideways kick you mean a step sidekick then it's the one in the first video - you move your rear leg forward, just behind your lead leg, and with that momentum you shoot your lead leg into a sidekick.

    Ah right, thanks guys.

    I heard them mentioned somewhere, by a Defendo guy who used to take TKD and was somewhat curious.

    I know I've seen an axe kick actually work in a fight video... I can't remember where it was, or what format (kickboxing?). Sort of surprising, since they are awfully silly looking.

    basically any Andy Hug highlight will have a few. In K-1 or kyok rules.

    Also, GSP slammed somebody on the ground with one, but who escapes me. Its in most of his highlights.
