    Catching your kick

    Don't you worry about someone catching your kick when you kick that high? Saturday, a guy 6 inches shorter than me, caught one of my front kicks but it still worked out good because I pulled him into a vicious combination with my fist. LOL.. Of course we were wearing headgear and gloves.

      It can happen I suppose, but for some reason I've been real successful in landing them. It's problably because I practice them alot so they are my fastest kick. The last time someone caught my foot I was able to make them pay for it (with my fists)

        After doing TKD as a teen and then onto MT for 12 years, I would have to say I prefer the MT kicks over TKD ones. Pros and cons in both, but the level of repetition, simplicity and power developed in the MT kicks are awesome.

          I heard that the Front Kick and the Roundhouse are the main kicks used in MT. Do you guys ever use any other kicks? Which ones? What is the muay thai philosophy on side kicks?

            Yeah pretty much the front and round kicks are it and there are just variations of them.

            The spinning back kick is used a bit depending on fighter to fighter. There are no rules against them or using a spinning heel kick either which is sometimes used.

            Side kicks are hardly ever used or trained. They don't land easy and, IMHO, are too slow especially off the back leg. In saying that however, a nice low and explosive side kick to an opponents knee is quite valid and effective in a SD situation.
