    Omega, do you throw to the leg with your instep if you think they're any good at shin checking?

    I've hurt my instep and other people's a bunch of times bringing our elbows down to cover our midsection. So, I've aimed to the body with the shin for years, but I only made the switch to shin for the high kick less than a year ago. I haven't been sparring with striking as I'd like to lately, but, so far I'm liking it better for two reasons.

    One, people's natural inclination is to move back when something comes at them, so it's not exactly uncommon to wind up hitting them in the head with your instep when you aimed for shin. Aiming with the instep, I had a lot more near-misses that would have been direct hits had I made the switch sooner.

    Two, this will sound weird, but I really appreciate the shorter, almost boxing range of the headkick with the shin. I've heard from a few people that they didn't think I could've kicked them from so close.

    It puts a lot of fighters out of the game for a while to catch an elbow.

    Saw exactly this during sparring at my Goju jitsu class

    stopped kicking with my instep

    On the other hand Corey Hills broken shin can also show the danger in that as well

    Lucky for me I kick like a feather

    I'll do a round house ball kick if I fight guys who are dropping their elbows to gaurd their body.

    I usually throw kicks from just barely outside of the reach of my right hand or even within punching range. It's the way to go, imo.

    AnnaT, i love you, but i never, ever want to spar you.


    Also, is kicking with the instep bad? Depends on how much you enjoy your ankle/foot not being fucked up.

    I concur with Omega. Block with your elbows, and I'm kicking you in the balls.

    I can only do while it cheating (aka wearing sneakers). Were you always able to bend your toes back like that or is it something that came with practice? Not counting footage of famous people, I've only ever seen my original instructor and two other people be able to do it.

    It really does make for some very smooth hand/leg combinations which used to only be possible if I got the person moving back from my hands first.
