    Using the ball on a front thrust kick I can understand. Using it for a side thrust seems a little odd but I can see what you're shooting for.

    Yeah I guess so, I never thought of it before, just always hit with it. Makes sense with the heel, I'll try it out, just feels natural on my ball.
    I use the ball when I am throwing the kick straight from the lead foot to the body without bringing the leg into any kind of chamber, like it is rising as it is thrusting.
    Don't really use a straight chambered thrusting sidekick much.
    I'll see if there is any examples of it on video from the recent TD. I threw a few sidekicks.

    The ball foot sidekick was a technique I used in point sparring against taller people. Generates crap all for power, but a surprise 6 inches of reach gets many much points. There's probably an example somewhere in my first 2 TD vids w/ KidSpat. I threw like 50 sidekicks....

    i would always go with the heel, but in an MMA class i went to once i saw someone throw a bladed side kick up into a much bigger guys throat, he only did it relatively slow and lightly but the guy was still laying on the ground choking.. guess it has its place

    I use the Heel with my sidekick,seeing that its the hardest bone in the body there is less chance of injury to the foot or ankle.It also does the most damage to your opponent, being struck with a harder surface when compared to the ball or blade method.

    don't ruin your point with false facts

    the femur is generally regarded as the hardest bone in the body

    My old dojo actually changed how they side kick after a couple of students broke ankles with poorly-placed blade of foot sidekicks. Everybody from the instructor on down took the time to retrain sidekicks.

    So DGO, if you're doing it wrong, it's always worth relearning the technique.

    I stand corrected,Damm I hate it when that happens.
    What I should have said was, that the heel is the strongest bone in the foot.
    That being said its eazy to see why it would be the preferred striking surface of the sidekick.

    I find that when kicking the bag with the heel, it swings farther. But it is more of a push than a strike. When i kick with the blade, the bag kind of bounces up and down, which is a good thing.

    Kick a two hundred pound sand bag with the blade of your foot then with your heel. You'll figure out which one works in about two seconds.
