Yup, that's the exact vid.

Look at the angle on the kick Feitosa uses and the angle on the kick in the OP. Are they the same?

He also shortens the technique to make it less obvious (shows the front kick, then almost flicks the round kick out).
The kicking tutorial is more elaborate, and under no pressure. I have my Capt Obvious hat on, don't I?
The techniques may not be exactly the same. The concept is - although the execution is different due to circumstances.

Maybe the slight variation is just due to different training methods, and experience of the fighter then.

Also, target areas... tutorial guy was kicking imaginary Tim Silvia whereas fighter guy was trying to kick a normal human in the face.

I do this in TKD all the time. You can generate power with it, and it's extremely effective on people who are counter-attack idiots. Of course, I do TKD, so my post is more in the vein of Gitmo, but I think this is a pretty common technique in any striking repitoire.

This is how nyc jka + splinter groups generally did most of their roundhouse kicks in the 70s. It is a very good fake (as long as you don't use it too often, it's a high % move in standup), but also, a good general way to chamber a roundhouse if you want to sacrifice some of the swinging power for a fast in-out so you don't get your leg trapped if you're fighting a person that is trying to do that. You make up some of the lost power with hip rotation and snap, but obviously it's less force than a swinging round.
It's a decent jab type kick though that doesn't unbalance you much and you may inflict real pain if you manage to hit a good target with the ball of your foot (instep on this kick is just for being nice to your partner's head during sparring).

I've never had the good fortune to be kicked like that, but it looks like it has less power than a standard Thai round kick. maofas's post seems to say the same thing. Is this correct?Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

Everything on the ground these days somehow is Jiujitsu.
Every elbow is a Muay Thai Elbow.
All throws are Judo or wrestling.
Everybody says "Carry Okee" to pronounce Karaoke.
It's fucking irritating.
