    YouTube - Shokei Matsui 100 man kumite

    Great Matsui/Kyokushin vid. He uses his instep and shin in the opening sequence on makiwara and heavy bag, then ball of the foot to the head, belly, and inside of the leg during kumite (0:32, 0:35, 2:04, 4:25). His opponents appear to use both (3:05-3:10). 5:16 may be an instep-to-head by Matsui.

    This vid made me realize that A) ball of the foot can work, B) ball of the foot is a whole hell of a lot easier without footgear, and C) this is a better vid YouTube - Shokei Matsui 100-man Kumite (absolutely PERFECT one at 3:32). It caused me a few years back to experiment with shin and instep roundhouses, and I'm much happier with a range of striking surfaces.

    I always felt like, the ball of the foot is kinda sensitive too. There are quite a few bones in there, and I'm just not comfortable throwing toes first, as it were (even bent back, it's still kinda toes first) at elbows, or anything hard.

    If people always blocked the same, it wouldn't matter to me...but it's easy for someone to use a looping/hooking block, and **** up someone's toes without even trying. Being very fast, or a krotty master, probably would make it easier...I just don't like the risk (I fail @ teh bravery)

    I saw a dude break a 1-inch thick cement board with a ball-of-the-foot roundhouse kick, so you can probably do a fair amount of damage on a ribcage with it, if you do it right.

    Dude, i've seen someone slice OFF their own dick and moan while doing it.

    does this mean it feels good?

    doubt it.

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.
