    I use this in Sparring alot, and I have used it in the past in TKD tourney's. It works really well, and it does'nt take long to get it down, it is a pretty simple technique, but it looks good. I seen one of those fights on the World Combat League, where the guy actually KO'ed the other guy with this kick, it was nice.

    Sure. A really common defence in TKD sparring involves a back step to evade then unleahing a double. The forward momentum isn't really required...

    It was actually a sarcastic criticism of the kick but I kind of wasn't thinking about the internet's inability to convey tone of voice.

    One problem about double kicks is that noobs tend to try and jump high with them, so they just either fall on their ass or get back kicked into a wall. It's hard to pull off but very effective when you do.

    It pretty hard to abort. Once you get the forward momentum going and your up in the air, you're pretty much committed to going forward, which is one of the things I don't like all that much about them. As I mentioned earlier, you can turn the second kick into a knee strike if they stand there like a stump or move in on you, but I think landing it with power is as much a matter of luck (i.e. where your opponent is when you land it) than anything else. Seems like you'd be pretty open to a punch to the face while you're up in the air between kicks if they other guy knows to try and stuff your knee with his other hand when moving in. You're also pretty much hosed if they step off at an angle away from the first kick.

    edited to add:

    Of course, if you do them really well, you shouldn't be up in the air for very long, so you are only vulnerable for a short time.

    not actually

    double kick is quite easy yo do by every martial artist(except boxing and jujitsu guy) besides, even a white belt tkd practitioner can do that

    Doing it in the air and doing it to someone who is actively trying to knock you out are two very different things.

    of course, the white belt tkd practitioner has to be doing combative tkd, not regular tkd, right?
