why arent kicks mma for "take me down plz"?
I can't count the number of times I've seen one guy wiff on the kick, land awkwardly, then the other guy does nothing. to do a takedown you work so hard to get him off balance. but if hes doing or just done a kik hes put himself off balance. but no one goes for it. wtf?

Don't bother starting another thread in Gitmo until you have an intelligent question that you take the time to phrase in a legible manner.
This is your last and only warning.

It's true, a lot of times they should and give up perfect takedown attempts, BUT sometimes you're so intent on getting out of the way of a powerful rear leg kick, you wind up moving out too far or with too much momentum to get back in promptly (and shooting in too late and putting yourself at risk to strikes is worse than not doing it I think). No one is perfect.

I'm really stoned right now, so honestly, I didn't find his post hard to understand at all. Sober though, I could see how it would be a bitch.

Short answer: Sometimes you're spending too much time getting out of the way of the kick, or sometimes you lock up. There's been plenty of times where I've said, "Crap, I could have countered that." but stopped because I was unsure of his action, post-attack. Hate to walk into another hit from an intentionally feigned kick.DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

The type of kicks advocated for MMA hit hard. If you can't make your opponent respect your kick, you shouldn't be throwing it. Also there's only a brief moment in time to make that takedown happen. Kick catching and sweeping is legal in san da and competitive hapkido, but people still land lots of kicks without being taken down.

"This is your last and only warning."
Are you a mod or just a free lance dickhead? What's the problem?
