    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    double kicks?

    So I just started learning karate. It's a style called Chidokwan (it's the only form of martial art offered at my college, I'm getting a BJJ club started) and there are some things that seems downright mickey mouse to me. I have some things that I would like to get some input on that just don't seem right to me:

    1. The sensei seems to put a lot of faith into double roundhouse kicks. I'm assuming that they're not useful in anything but ASKA point sparring matches. Can anyone tell me otherwise?

    2. Bounce kicks. Very much the same question as above, input?

    3. Hook kicks, are they at all useful?

    Thank you for any and all worthwhile answers.

    Don't ask us, actually try it in a real situation. go to BJJ club and say "im going to do double kicks" to a friend, and then see where it gets you, Chuck Norris. jk :P

    Not sure what you mean by double roundhouse kick.

    We have a "double" kick in Muay Thai, which is just two consecutive thai kicks in rapid succession.

    There's the 1-2 double round kick from TKD that is back leg low round, then sort of a skipping high kick with what is now your back leg. People who are good at them can generate knockout power on the second kick.

    Hook kicks can be very very strong, but you have to be careful throwing them because if you telegraph it and the person jams you you can get RNCed like a ho REAL fast.

    WTF is a bounce kick?

    We used to call those machine gun round kicks... Great for pointfighting, useless for anything else.

    In that case... find a different school, because that's a bunch of crap right there. Even my TKD school didn't teach us that crap.
