    Yeah those are some good Muay Thai techniques right there. These are not used much in MMA, mainly because not many can pull it off right and it may not be worth going for in a 3 round fight. But in 5 round Muay Thai fights they are very useful to break your opponents leg down and disrupt his gameplan. Many people seem to think that MT fighters do nothing but roundhouse kicks, but they couldnt be more wrong.

    I typically wear square-toed boots with a solid heel. I will smash a kneecap with them if I need to. In the str33t, boots>kneecaps.

    Bent knee or not...that is going to do some damage.

    Not really sure how well it will work with bare feet, though.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    You havent paid much attention to Anderson Silva? Have you been living under a rock for the last couple of years?

    LOL that was a good one. At one time , a previous job I had we had to wear steel toe shoes. Now getting hit with with these shoes even lightly will hurt someone. Not many of us go around in public barefoot so any kicking done in these shoes/ boots to the knee area will cause some or great damage depending on the strike...

    Kick to the knee with a front or side kick works well on an opponent coming foward. Good disruption. It won't put someone down though.
