    Did that guy twist his own foot backward from trying to kick the other guys' leg? What an idiot. This is why I do not fight professionally. I would probably do the same thing.

    There was another "better" version of that shot from the right side.... the way the guy's lower leg was flapping around was "disturbing"......

    Actually, to me it looked rather like the cause was that he impacted with the flat of his shin....

    Which tends to happen when you low kick on an upward angle instead on INTO the leg or downward.
    Can't count the times it is drilled into people when they do MT or Kyokushin ( or any art that stress low round kicks) that you don't angle the kick up because it exposes and makes contact with the weakest (flat) part of the tibia.

    That's what I thought I saw.
    I guess it's more of a worry for some of you guys, but in TCMA the way I learned it, we train and fight with our "street shoes"... in my case that meant boots.
    When you "specialize" in something like that you get pretty good at using every advantage that said footwear offers.... and creating some additional ones.

    Righto! That's why heel kicks are so important when wearing spike heels!

    Your boots go up to you knees?




















    'Cuase, you know, if they don't then the tip about not angling low kicks up is still vaild. My sifu calls it "floating the kick" and floating a kick will cause you to fail the kicking portion of a rank test.
