    Hi all, I would just like to find out which kick you all prefer or whih you use most in tournament conditions, so basically of all the basic kicks which do you find the most practical and useful in a fight situation? I have given the seven that i think would be the best contenders for this, so choose from them or just say a different one if you don't like those...
    Thx :)

    My vote goes to Side Kick, because it does a brilliant job of catching opponents off-gaurd while forming a good defence too, very long-useful weapon. Although spinning/reverse side kick is a close competitor for it's pure surprise factor + it's cool!

    alex_000 You talking to me?

    errrr. The roundhouse kick is low waist and head high. At least the low and the aist/head high should be distinguished in a poll (my opinion).

    yeh, i was thinking about that but i decided that the roundhouse kick referred to in the poll can be any height, just how you use it basically, but thx for the oppin. anyway!

    My personal favorite is a side kick. Front leg.

    I think I could probably do a front kick faster, though, so under tournament sparring I might be inclined to throw that. Or I might just split the difference and do flipping front or side depending on how I think they'll try to block, or how they've blocked so far.

    My preference is the result of which kicks I can perform more reliably. If I could do a blazing fast roundhouse, I think I might do that.

    Depending on the rules, and the amount of different martial arts involved, I would most likely prefer the low kick, if it's allowed.

    If not, the medium height roundhouse. It's a good tool to use for finishing a combo, or can be used very well in the middle of a flurry.

    Has to be the roundhouse for me. But I guess the fact I'm coming from a thai boxing perspective makes me a bit biased perhaps...

    Nah, I use the Thai roundhouse almost exclusively. Its power is amazing, and is great for thigh kicks. It's a better full contact kick than it is for point sparring, though. I wouldn't use it for high kicks, unless I knew it would hit. If you miss, your follow through could leave you open for a whooping.

    Roundhouse to the tigh or the leg/knee and also the knee to the abs or head. (I'm not sure what kind of kickboxingrules you're discussing, but I use the FMA (filippino) rules...

    I voted back kick but I am thinking of it being used under WTF sparring gules rather than in kickboxing as in WTF you can use the kick to scare people out of throwing roundhouse kicks if they know you are gonna try and back kick them all the time.

    crazy people

    :eek: Common people. Its a crescent kick common think. A crescent can have so many combanations its not funny. You could do a crescent followed up by a back swing then a round house. Or a crescent followed up by a left leg inside out axe kick then a front kick. Or a crescent followed up by a front push kick then a run jump front kick. Or a crescent followed up by a hook kick then a side kick. Think people think. You think a crescent is better now?

    And the variety of crescent kicks makes them even better. I mean you've got front crescent, high crescent, spinning crescent (my personal favorite) and they just keep getting more powerful. One great kick, or is it many. Plus it's a good start for a kick chain. IMO powerful, easy, fast, and endless combinations.
