At the Australian Open tennis tournament this year, the Serbs and Croats got rowdy, and started fighting. One of the chaps threw a kick, which seemed to just catch his opponent in the side (though he doesn't seem too concerned).
While this clearly isn't a professional fight, and the two camps don't look all that impressive, it's instructive to see what happens out there in the 'real world' (by this, I mean impromptu fights between non-fighters).
Kickers, critique this kick for power, accuracy, balance and style.

Aiming for balls.

I wish we could get an "after image" but from what's there, even with shoes on the other guy doesn't look phased at all. Overall it doesn't look all that impressive or anything. He seems off balance and his face looks funny.
Style: Muay Thai
It actullay looks like a decent push kick. If it was a soccer kick he would have kicked him in the ass, this is pushing the other guy off one foot and it looks like it is connecting in a good spot. He could be putting more hip into but for a Tennis fight I think it looks good.

Notice the dude with the black hair and tee punching at the air between the kicker and kickee? I looks like he's punching the kicker's hand. I'd like to see what that really was or if he's blind or something.

I noticed that too. Weird.
Maybe they're both wearing rings. When the rings connect, they turn into giant robots.

That or he's sending a chi blast to someone off camera. His eyes ARE closed after all
Still digging on James Brown

They are wearing nearly the exact same clothes. Only left guy has Nike shoes and an Adidas T-shirt while right guy has Adidas shoes. I wonder if right guy has a Nike shirt. That would make it all very yin-yang.
