    I primarily use kicks only to bring my opponent's guard down. I'm a puncher, but almost all my combos start with kicks. Somtimes end with them.

    i have a problem...i'm dead afraid of kicking. i have this physcological fear of buckling my knees if someone were to side kick into my pivot leg when i'm doing a kick. as a result i'm pretty much a boxer only, occasionally throw weak RH or thrust kick. is there any gd k1 fighter with dominant hands?

    1) when you are doing your kicks right, you won't have to worry about that because of the distance between you and them vs. them and your leg, is in advantage for you hitting them before they will hit your leg (if you don't believe me, stand in front of a wall, kick at knee height and then kick at lower body/rib height, check the distance to the wall and notice this is not a threat to your leg and if so (for what ever strange reason you might beat physics and mathematics at the same time), you can always go for the push kick and create distance.

    2) yeah there are some good K1 fighter that have no kicking at all, they are called BOXERS.
    There is no way you are going to go against somebody who has kicks and knees against you and you are only try to strike. There are only two outcomes to such a fight,
    a) you outclass them, your missing kicks don't matter and shouldn't fight them in the first place.
    b) they beat you because they have the reach advantage, take your speed away and can hit you on multiple levels and you shouldn't fight them in the first place.
    Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.

    At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

    i tend to use kicks to counter kicks and step in to get close to prevent their kicks from becoming effective or i use the kicks to break an opponents guard and their stance. Pretty much the wing chun approach, which i find works well against kick boxing and TKD.

    How close do you step to prevent their kicks? I can pretty much throw a leg kick from clinch range and I'm no kicking talent. Not calling BS on WC anymore btw, i got my arse embarrassedly destroyed by a kickboxing guy using almost solely TKD on Saturday, i think that disqualifies me from talking **** about any art.

    very close i think the term used for the distance is "trapping" range. I'm not really good with proper teminolgy.

    If you are ever in Brisbane send me a PM, every Saturday my gym opens up to all styles for 20 rounds of sparring. We had a bunch of different people come in two weekends ago and it is all ego free at whatever sparring % you want to go. The other week we had boxing, tkd, MT, mma and a couple of kung fu guys.

    That's a cool thing to do, Sang. Sounds like a great school.
