    Types of round kicks

    Here you go:

    #2
    Please note the following correction:
    the first 2 kicks, the names are mixed up.
    The first kick is a "typical" karate round house kick
    The second is a "typical" kyokushin round kick.

      Reminds me of a book I saw at the Hastings here I want to pick up. It's on grappling and shows the same basic throws and locks as done by typical Aikido, Judo, Wrestling , and a chinese art whose name I don't recall. I'll post something on it whne I get it and read it.

          I'm too stupid to notice the big difference beyond the MT getting deeper in the kick

            I only know of two different round kicks, the first being the "snap" round kick where the knee comes up straight and then the hips turn to make the leg turn over and snap the kick out (popular in point sparring); the second being the "power" round kick where you turn your hips over at the beginning bringing your thigh around to point at your target and then whipping out your leg as you finish the torque of your hips. The second one is the one I do in karate which seems similar to a MT style kick, but I don't know for sure.

              The "snap" kick has less body movement and less body weight behind it.
              The Kyokushin kick is a combination of the MT and Karate one.
              It is suppose to have the power of the MT and the speed of the karate.
              The TKD one from the WTF is similar to the MT one, but the ITF is more like the Karate one, but in some schools, more like the Kyokushin one.

                There is a full website with a detailed explanation of the differences as well as that diagram. I will post it later tonight (around 9PM EST).

                Anyone who doesn't want to wait can go digging around on KyokushinMail.

                  thanks, I'm curious to know which one I do, because it's all kind of confusing

                    Aim for a target, raise your knee as high as you can, smash through target with foot, go though victims pockets and wallet, call cab and go home or nearest rub-n-tug.

                      Remember to look at the body/hand movements too guys...torquing the body changes things.

                        that's true, those pictures show the lead hand swinging away from the kick where we try to keep our hands out in front to block

                          Yeah. Note how TKD tends to keep the hands in tighter and more forward as well?

                          The MT style of swinging the arm is something I'm still trying to get a handle on personally...I find it very hard to do that and still get my hands up in time to avoid being nailed in the head.

                          I'm curious how "karate" can be one of those classifications when Kyukoshin IS a karate style...and I know several karate styles kick differently. That should really be Shotokan, no?

                            Rear hand protects your face.

                            And from that pic I'd say his right hand should be farther forward to do just that. The left hand should be back near his ass somewhere. That would solve that problem of your CT.
