Was that an inside crescent kick or a round kick? I can't tell because it's moving too fast, but it looks like he kicked with the inside blade. That's one sneaky kick, aside from the turning back kick, that maybe the sneakiest I've seen...
That was Mauy Thai or Taekwondo? Maybe we're speaking different disciplines. A roundhouse connects at the heal, not the blade, right?
In karate / kickboxing they call the kick that connects with the blade an inside or outside crescent. And then there's also a right-leg and left-leg round kick, it connects from the top of the foot. The inside crescent, which looks a lot like that kick, is very deceptive because at first glance it appears you're going for a basic side kick with the heal, and you can see he tried to check / block it at center mass of the chest, it's an easy miscalculation when you're tired... but if that kick connects at the head, it's over.
The turning back kick is the same way, at first glance it appears to be a round kick (which connects at the top of the foot), a very easy kick, until they pull a 360 on you and connect on the opposite side of the body. It's wicked sneaky when someone is tired.
Wow, I didn't know that! Got a black belt? My son takes MMA classes and they do a mix of BJJ, Karate / Muay Thai Kickboxing, Judo, Aikido (Krav) and Kali.
Okay got it. At his school they have the round kick, front kick, side kick, crescent kick, axe kick, turning back kick and the 360 kick. I think that's all of them.
Outstanding, congrats on that, takes some serious dedication to pull that off.
Most welcome! Mind if I tell my son, he'll get a kick out of that! He's been training for about a year and a half now and the results are undeniable, he's a different kid.
It's a fact that black belts are better equipped to overcome failures / adversity. The skill-set / training are just an added benefit, the self-discipline is the true reward.
That's definitely the best way to build it in him. They don't believe it when it comes from us, but when someone else sees it, it just means more. Not to mention, awareness is invaluable these days.
Same with mine, he's big for his age, but he's shy, even timid sometimes, he desperately needed confidence-building from someone other than me. He loves it and I do too because his Master is telling him all the same things I do, but it means more from him and he knows exactly how much to push him, he applies the stress we experience in dangerous situations but without being abrasive. It's been a godsend to both of us.
Will do, same to yours too :)
Jean Yves Theriault, the name does sound familiar???
Was he in Deepthroat with Ada Lovelace?
I like this pic rockin some two stripe.
The eyes. Blind people can't really fight very well.
The lungs. Ever blown up a balloon and then let it go? It's the same basic principle.
The ball of your foot works well, or elbows, elbows have major power when you pivot your hip into it. But a simple body-cross would do the trick, with the pivot that is, otherwise it's just a love tap. lol Then get away, quickly.
A blow to the Adams Apple..
Yep, that's the one. Same result too, deflates the lungs. It does very little real damage, but it's the showstopper... In the time it takes to recover, you're long gone. Hopefully, that is the whole point, for everyone to get away safely. imo
Quick straight jab to the nose. 乂>_<乂
Anywhere I can hit them.
Frontal neck? As it's very easy to hit that person in that spot (no strong bones to protect) and he might not be able to breathe
Any weak spot. In the case of a rapist, the stump and two bails.))
