    I say inside, but recently at a pankration tournament a thai boxer type dropped his opponent with three really fast, really hard kicks to the outside of the thigh. The guy dropped and that was the end of the match.

    ... and I , personally , foul out on the inside more often .

    So I agree one hundred percent . I don't (haven't) construct any game plans based around inside leg kicks .

    I suppose if you were accurate enough you could use one to open up the other . Most people are conditioned for outer leg kicks ... at least if they train to compete and thus will defend predictably against it ... opening up the inner thigh . I don't know if there is much you can do to condition the inner leg . So work the hell out of both and see what fits when you get in there .

    if this is some abstract thing ... they both are equal against the clueless hordes and dumb bad luck .

    another vote for the inside... I practically TKOed my opponent in a smoker fight in the first 10 seconds when he tried to left push kick me and I stepped out and right leg kicked the inside of his rear leg. The ref broke it up and the guy was putting his leg in the ropes to check it out.

    Inside, but harder to pull off succesfully.

    IF you really want to buckle a lead leg, Kensetsugeri (forgive spelling). or just stomp the damn knee

    They weren't matching stances though...he was blasting the inside with a rear leg kick. Sure that would be a great option but what if you both fighting with the same lead. That is what I thought your question was...Front leg kick to the inside or rear leg kick to the outside? Both kicks being equal...the inside kick would be the bomb-digity.

    I've done it. It was technically a stickfighting tournament, but kicks were allowed. My opponent was a boxer/arnisador and I baited him with some head hits with the stick, then just drove through hard with a round kick to the thigh. (I used to due Muay Thai). We were both heavyweights, and I was tipping in at about 225, I'm guessing he was a bit heavier.

    Stickfighers tend to sit down in their stance to brace from the stick hits from above, and this guy was really anchoring down. He didn't expect the kick at all, it dropped him cleanly, and it took him a good 20 seconds to stagger to his feet.


    It is tough to pull this off against someone who is really expecting it. Obviously in a kickboxing or mma situation, you're expecting leg kicks, and people won't be so leadfooted. It probably didn't hurt that I'm a big guy with very thick thighs and commit fully to most of my strikes. At lighter weight categories, I'd wonder if fighters would have enough mass to drop someone with a single leg kick.
