    Might be easier to understand if you know I'm southpaw, my opponent was powering off his back leg going left chopping at my lead shin/calf every-time i closed the range.

    I've seen heaps of people use that inside leg kick to off balance followed by a jab or lead hook, very effective. Keep in mind though that dwkfym is southpaw, over-using the jab is a great way to get dropped. All the power shots counter it (straight left, rear roundhouse, step up left knee).

    It is illegal to target below the knee in international rules. However it isn't illegal in Muay Thai and I for one do it all the time. In Muay Thai its only illegal to do "boot to boot" karate style sweeps. As long as it is a sweeping kick and not a push its fine.

    So depending on his trainer and the rules your opponent could very well have been doing this on purpose. It is very unsettling and people that aren't familiar with it really get wobbled. Some to the point of almost feeling injured.

    My favorite really low kick is to kick the outside of the calf right on the fibula. It really upsets the knee and ankle. You can break the fibula pretty easily if your opponent puts enough weight on the lead leg. Much easier than breaking the tibia.

    Of course my absolute favorite kick of all time is kicking the lower part of the back leg from the blind side. That's the sweep you see me do in every throwdown video where I do stand up.

    sounds interesting, could you post a video showing that one best?
    I'm not sure if i understand the kick you are talking about.

    I think he's referring to the sweep where you go under the lead checking leg and take out the back leg. 21 secs in.

    oh yeah, nice one.
    ive got freakish long legs, its possible.
    its al bout positioning/footwork in relation to oponent.
    i find it hard to pull off when the opponent adequately responds.

    I can only do that one off a fake switch-kick, and half the time i do it my opponent stumbles rather than tumbles. I'm not sure what the southpaw equivalent is but this thread has inspired me to try two of Machida's sweeps in sparring today.




    Edit: I also intend to try the sweep that put me on my arse, almost worth buying the dvd of the event so i can get a better look at it.

    It is indeed the one in the video with Kidspatula at 0:21 but I don't wait for a lead kick to do it. I just step out and kick across the back of both legs aiming at the calf of the back leg. I usually add a little hip bump to it also.

    so basically the technique is about footwork and timing.
    i like it.
    is the hipbump a sort of a scoop em up movement?
    it seems to it should have to be that way.

    Exactly. The hip bump part is probably illegal under certain kickboxing rules but its hard to see.
