    As for round house kicks and not getting KO'd watch my body positions in those videos and how I try to move my head out of punching range during the kicks.
    Who's the TKDist in the white rashguard and cammo shorts in the first video?

    Always an option. Headkicks are about as high-level as striking gets in MMA, and are a luxury plenty of talented strikers do just fine without.

    Do a jumping headkick. It provides more power, more range, and more height. It's only rare because it takes many years to master it, but in the end it's worth it.

    You're just writing that because he forgot to mention the jump-kicker's gravity-defeating friends: handheld electric fans and the propellor-beanie.

    So.... where's the video of your high kick?

    One thing that was only briefly touched on (sort of mentioned as an afterthought) was the range. Everyones been mentioning rotation, but if you're able to kick the bag with power and the kick feels fine against people your own size (or shorter), then it may be that you're not adjusting your range properly to kick the taller opponent.

    However, that's just a guess. Show us video so we can see what's REALLY happening...

    It may have a little bit to do with your genetic superiority.

    Back when, all the partner & pad drills I did were designed with righty vs. righty in mind. I thought it was fine at the time, since we'd drill both sides equally (switching to lefty vs. lefty), but while the techniques themselves were getting practiced, I wasn't practicing how to actually "fit them in" vs. my opponent's (most likely) orthodox stance.

    Oh well, food for thought, and totally not just because I just wanted to get that "You haven't posted in awhile" **** off the top of my screen.

    Here's a list of kicks that you can use to kick people in the head:

    Roundhouse
    Spinning Heel Kick
    Spinning Back Kick
    Hook kick
    Crescent Kick
    Axe Kick
    Inverted Roundhouse (my personal favorite for totally retarded kick)
    Flying knee
    Switch Roundhouse
    Jumping spinning roundhouse
    Jumping spinning axe kick
    Jumping spinning heel kick
    Jumping spinning back kick
    Front kick
    Push kick
    Side kick (my personal favorite for breaking someone's face)

    Yes, I've used all of these on more than 10 occassions to kick someone in the face.

    But I've only landed a 540* roundhouse on someone once. Accidentally.
