    Snap Kick vs. Push Kick

    Coming from a TKD backround, I was taught to do snap kicks. When I started MMA, however, I discovered push kicks to be VERY effective. So what is the advantage/disadvantage of both techniques?

    Snap kicks are worse for your knees, generally are not as strong, and generally are faster. Push Kicks don't do a lot of damage but well create space for you, are generally a little slower than the snap kicks, and give you a small risk of one being deflected and it screwing your balance up. As a TKD black belt I suggest you ditch the snap kicks and switch to a MT style roundkick that uses more hip and less knee.

    Different kicks for entirely different purposes. Personally I find the push kick to be a far more useful kick, but I have seen the snap kick used effectively (Buakaw Por Pramuk, 2 time K-1 Max champion, uses a front snap kick from time to time).

    Agreed, some people use them to great effect. It's a kick I never liked in TKD and never found much use for beyond board breaking tricks.

    It's not terrible enough for YMAS or Trollshido, but it's certainly not worthy of strikeistan, as it's really not a particularly useful discussion.

    Just for clarification what kind of thread in Strikeistan does make a useful discussion? I looked before I posted and there didn't seem to be any indication that discussion of certain striking techniques were frowned upon.

    Ok, I underestand where you're coming from. Would it have helped if had rephrased the question?

    I swear I'm not a troll lol...
