    I suffered with these doughy full contact punches for ages thinking that if I push more I will hit harder.

    I gave it up and am throwing rocks with about half the effort.

    Yeah. Stupid point style flick kicks. That I laughed at untill I met some karate guys who could fight.

    People don't take in to account that a foot is so much heavier than a hand you don't have to load them you just have to hit them right.

    Doesn't apply to flares, chalk, CS, and 40mm buckshot iirc. 40mm buckshot rounds are reason enough to own one of you can source them. That's why you see the glowy types carry the pistol grip m203s with the 7in barrel sometimes. Apparently they really clear out a room.

    when the tae kwon do demo team grows up and decides to kickbox and do muay thai you get some anthony pettis types.
    The Caucasian always has stronger strength and when comes to grappling, Caucasians mostly win easily. I do know grappling and if I used it on Asians my size, it works. - Kung Fu dude that got waxed at OneFc try out.

    40 mm buckshot round. Well, that's news to me.

    Damn...that sounds almost like a shoulder-fired Claymore...

    The flare is probably pretty impressive as well.

    Hell yeah, popping flares at dudes is no joke. You’re basically white phossing mother fuckers at close range.

    Well the heads not all that durable so getting kicked on there is going to hurt like **** regardless. If you find using you foot easier and it's not piss weak then crack on. I've been to a few Thai schools that see this as sacrilege like but heh whatever works.

    I don't mind using the foot for inside leg kicks too. It's not close to as damaging as the shin but it's an annoying and distracting twat that's quick to flick out.

    Everyone I spar turns their knee in for that kick. So I deep shin to protect the toesies.

    There are a few karate schools turning out fighters these days. So it will start to happen more at a local level anyway.
