    If I just want to develop one technique only, I'll choose the "foot sweep". Old Chinese saying said, "If you are good at foot sweep, you should be able to handle 80% of your problem". Since people always have to step in to punch you, the chance for you to sweep his advancing leg is always there.

    If it works so good, why don't you see it being used in UFC .?, Only leg kicks .?

    You can have Kung Fu in cooking, it really has nothing to do with fighting!

    Most of the UFC fighters are focusing on chain punches and push hands.

    This is not true. The "foot sweep" is considered as one of the 10 best signiture moves used in UFC. It's rated #5. If you are good at it, you can turn a stand up fight into a ground game quickly.

    #10 - Flying Guard Pull
    #9 - Slam
    #8 - Leg Locks
    #7 - Hammer Fists
    #6 - Looping Overhand Right
    #5 - Foot Sweeps
    #4 - Thai Clinch
    #3 - Head Kicks
    #2 - Armbar
    #1 - Liver Shot

    In your opinion, is there such thing as "internal foot sweep" vs. "external foot sweep"?

    The Judo Deashi Harai may fit the definition of "foot sweep" better.

    What will you call this kind of "foot sweep" in Judo?

    Qualify 'best'

    By 'best' do you mean 'what do we think is best' or 'what we've gotten to work the best'? I've gotten the front snap kick to the gonads to work the best, but I'm not sure I'd advocate that as the 'best kick'.

    I thought you are the "internal guy". When did you turn into a "MMA guy"? The day when our MMA friend starts to mention "internal", the day that we can all believe our "internal guy" and "MMA guy" are truly the same person.

    He and La Roux are slowly becoming the same person. It's very weird and unsettling. Dark things are happening on the WC forum....

    The best technique is to beat someone using their own teacher as a human club.

    The psychological impact is remarkable.

    We call it a dragon kick in our style. It's basically a front thrust kick with the toes pointed outward to roughly 2 o'clock. You can skip in and stomp or just throw it out there in a stomping motion aiming for the hip, upper thigh area or the knee.

    I found a short video clip from the show Human Weapon describing the Savate front kick or Chasse Bas but it's basically the same thing.

    Describing it as "front jamming kicks using the instep" was really confusing and completely my fault because I was hurrying though my post so I just edited that part out and changed it to a more appropriately described front thrust kick. Sorry for any confusion.

    Punch is: uppercut if you have a good one they can rarely be seen and very succcessful.

    Kick is: front or round house simple quick to the point?

    Throw is: ? bung tiao or sobei

    Lock is: any lock that involves minimum effort, some locks are hard to pull off in real combat, so I am going with wrist. or elbow
