    That is so awesome.

    I once met a tkd guy who could do them really fast AND actually connect hard. But he was so short that the kicks ended up being at about chest height anyways. At the time I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I became disillusioned soon after that.

    I don't mean flexible in the conventional way. I mean my hip and shoulders can over rotate. I guess the best way to describe it is it seems like I am missing some tendons. For instance, most shoulder locks don't work on me.

    I've seen quite a few knockouts in kyokushin fights where the winner has used a inwards crescent kick and landed his heel on the other guy's head. They seem to be a close-range alternative to mawashi geri when you don't have the time/space to turn over the hips into the kick.

    I find them (mikazuki geri) pretty useless, but obviously some people make decent use of them.

    GSP used one on somebody when they were on the ground. I think it might've been Mayham Miller, but not sure. Anyway, it was awesome.

    Just horseplay--the knife was not very sharp, so he did not get a bad cut.

    I believe that was an axe kick. Different technique...

    If you want to get a gun out of some ones hand, you better learn from Matt Damon.

    I've seen it used as a feint/distractor in sparring. Don't think it would have any other use, though.

    I kicked a TKDer in the face with one in highschool. Knocked him down. Can't be all that bad.
