Eventually I did.
I've argued they are check kicks. It is hard for many people to get a ton of power in that kick.

How much pressure can a knee actualy take though? I dont think knee striking sounds to far fetched. Also to an earlier post.. strikes to the joints are illegal in UFC. You are not allowed to kick to the knee.. thats why you dont see them.
With a side kick I was able to break 4 boards with no spacers. I dont train to break boards. Im sure with a few weeks, yes WEEKS of training to break them I could break more. If I applied that to your kneecap.. I would think you wouldnt be standing.
Does that realy sound so far fetched?
Every one of Bruce Lees sorry excuse for martial arts defense books went something like this
"Here we see bruce lee ___________ when he is attacked by a assialint who attacks him with a _______ . Bruce gets into a fighting stance and side kicks the attacker in the knee cap."
I swear it was a kick to the knee for every attack.

Pedro Rizzo stopped Dan Severn with a kick to the knee at UFC 27. It was an MT round kick, though, not any kind of Kung Fu stamping craziness.

Do you know what kick we are talking about? You just said "With a side kick....."

MT Round Kick No.
SHin Kick to the knee? No.
Still, are they as fragile as people in MA have been led to believe? No.
Now that you see what "we" were talking about yes. You have two examples (yes no proof) of their lack of effectiveness IMO.

I see they are not.
However, did you know that a heel kick to the kidneys is illegal? Its because it can kill you ten days later. No wonder McCain was scared.

I got a friend who is a serious advocate of teh deadly pressure points, palm 'nasal bone' into brain, and related bullshido. Provided, I've only taken two courses for A&P, but presumably it's enough to not be a complete retard. Conversations often go like this:
A: "and if you hit them hard enough upwards with the palm strike, you can drive their nasal bones into their brain causing instantaneous death"
B: "Er...were they bones, or cartilage? I'm pretty sur--"
A: "How do YOU know? Have you tried striking those points? Have you seen them outside of the diagrams in class?"
HAVE YOU? I hate that argument, as unknowing to the user it applies back on them just as quickly, and not the first bullshidoka will admit it.
EDIT: Heel kick to the kidneys; in early UFC's, or even during a Gracie challenge, you might see Royce kicking the opponent in the kidneys with his heels while they are in his guard. He used it to wear people down, it looks like.
This one is just a swing out of nowhere, but I think that they probably made joint strikes illegal in the UFC for the sole purpose of protecting their prime athletes. I mean, even if it doesn't do damage or disable you right away, if you got kicked in the knees nearly EVERY SINGLE FIGHT in your professional career, that has got to be asking for some kind of chronic stress problem on the joints, or even a torn ligament or something career-ending.
