    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."
    ---Jean-Paul Sartre

      Hey there Nathancyi welcome to Bullshido.

      What do you use to strike with when you throw a sidekick ? After you answer that could you tell us more about yourself?

          I have heard it called that (kinda tongue in cheek) back in my Hapkido days.

            The "foot sword" is I assume the outside edge of the foot. The traditional answer would be edge for soft targets and heel for hard targets. Just use the heel because I have found that all the good targets for a side kick are better suited to the heel variety.

                      I gave you links that answer your question. In other words it is hotly debated and an old topic. Read those links and make your own decision. Better yet, do what you instructor told you.

                              It kind of depends where you kick them. If you some how manage to kick the person in the throat then I would think kicking them with the blade of your foot would be a better choice. But if you kick them in the solar plexes or the head then the heel of your foot would be more affective.
