spot on! it is possible to kick within punching range (fading) but i can't do this well yet.
No idea if it works v another southpaw, I'm the only one at this gym of 40 people.. there must be a couple of left handed people fighting orthodox. It seems to work well because they are on the move and unable to react fast enough to check/avoid it. I'm sure a leg kick would work just as well for a righty but the open stance L _| seems to make rib kicks very easy. The same is meant to be the case with straight rear hand punches in this situation but my hand skills are not as good as they should be so i haven't pulled this off yet.
Not sure if it will be useful to you, but those few kicks really made my night.. finally got some revenge :P.
Okay now I understand what you are trying to say.. crazzy internet :psyduck:
I just stated my opinion. then I backed up my opinion with technical FACTS. Sorry if you don't like my opinion. You can call me a "bullshitter" that's fine it's your opinion, just don't call me a head hunter ( never have been, never will be ) that's a FACT.
Don't worry, the only thing you are hunting is self respect. The chance of you being a Kyokushin tournament winner are about as great as me being the long lost, alive son of Bruce Lee.
What fucking technical fact?!

It's SUPER Lee to you thank you very much. I happened to earn that title fighting crime on the back streets of Ninbin.
loss of power, takes longer to execute, leaves you more off balance, all facts.
Leaves you more off balance? What the **** are you talking about, if you are off balance when doing a kick you are doing something wrong. During a kick you are supposed to be in control of your body and movement at ALL TIME. :eusa_doh:
Loss of power? Where do I lose power? why?
Takes longer to execute = there is a greater distance between your foot and the target?
Well maybe but this is almost irrelevant.
There are certain drawbacks to high kicks but the things you mention are none of them. I told you to go sit on the bench...
Because that really fat white guy in shaolin monk's robes who runs Golden Dragon Dojo says that "kicks above the waist are a waste".
