    This is such an internet question.

    I think that is what he meant with the multiple bones comment, yeah. He said he used to take TKD as well. What would you suggest/change in terms of the kick?

    Thank you for your contribution.

    Just like you should feel punches in the balls of your feet, you should feel the roundhouse in your shoulder.
    Actually thank you for real for this contribution. So would you think of the kick as more a sideways strike (which is my mode of thinking and my mental block right now) or a forward thing as Ryan said in the video?

    It's not a choice. You don't have to do one over the other. His comment about the swing and reaction of the bag is completely off base. You can do a swinging or a thrusting round kick. Each one will be used in different situations. To do one and not include the other is limiting your arsenal. You pick and choose dependent upon the effect you want to have or rather what you're trying to accomplish.

    Ok, I get what you're saying. My mental block is that I've always thought of the roundhouse as swinging, so really I'm just looking for a way to think about it that will make the thrusting roundhouse easier to "get."

    Swinging a Baseball bat to the ribs
    Swinging an axe to the legs.

    Aim behind the target either way.

    That's how I was always told to visualize it.

    Two other things which I would probably have newbs do.

    a) make sure the pivoting leg is slightly outside and past the target to insure that the hips are open to the thing being kicked. If your pivoting foot is between the padholders legs, you're probably open to the wrong target.

    b) particularly when it's a low-line target, try to visualize hitting the target on the way down, insstead of the way up(hitting it directly horizontal is fine to). If you're hitting it on the way down, your hips are probably turned over pretty well.

    I'd trust omega's judgement, but I have never thought of a roundkick as a "forward" motion. I think you are getting too hung up on semantics. Turn the foot, pull the shoulder back, and let the hip get pulled out while you fling your shin as hard as you can at whatever you want to hurt.

    Good luck with the MT.

    I think I know what you Khun Kao and Omega mean by "swinging" or a "thrusting" round kick. Do you mean Thrusting like a Cut kick or Thrusting like (what i would call) musiling through it? To Kick as deep as possible?

    Can anyone Show me a Video Difference:munky2:

    I agree with you guys on different techniques for different scenarios. "People say doesn't that leave you open?" or "thats not hard enough!" Or "thats too hard, too much body commitment" I always tell them fighting is give and take on variation, not a instructional video.
