then that is what would be called a swing kick in tkd, a roundhouse or crescent kick that isn't chambered up first.

tariq has a little shameless behaviour in the past
the guy broke his shin because there is no rotation in his kick, see how he doesn't pivot his left foot or rotate his hips or shoulders at all, if you throw a powerful kick like that really hard and hit somebody's knee you're shin is going to break, your son should be fine as long as he learns to kick right

Vanilla Power has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I stopped training for a couple of years and my shin couldn't handle the power of my kick, got bruised as. Conditioning doesn't last long.

All I can do is assume.

Not enough calcium in the bone? An already injured leg? Probably really tense calves that gave no give. Even overconditioning.

If you're flexible, have a decent diet and slowly condition, its not as likely to happen. But ow, poor dude!

For a good instructional video Rob Kaman has a good one im sure you can find on line. Maybe Bas Rutten has one too. Easy kick to learn, power comes in time.

Actually you are supose to make shin to shin contact when your blocking a leg kick. It might hurt you, but it will hurt the person throwing it more, and he probably wont be too keen on throwing more leg kicks after that.

Does anyone know of a good instructional video?

But I was alarmed when I came across this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsgh6...eature=related


What happened? Is the lifted knee just a good defense against a Muay Thai Round house, or was this not proper kicking technique, or what?

Is the Muay Thai round house kick slow? Is it that easy to defend against? Is the Karate round house faster?

I also found this: http://www.expertvillage.com/video/6...roundhouse.htm

I am in love with this instructional and this woman too. Be sure to see her website at: http://www.mellei.com/

Also her father's website at: http://www.h2hctc.com/home.htm There are some pictures of her kicking in there that are pretty spectacular. Her father was in Army Special Forces.

Sorry for the distracting woman, but she is so perfect.
Nah the guy did the kick right the only problem was that thai fighters unconditionaly train their legs so round kicks dont hurt so a raised knee+a baseball bat results in a break. A round kick in thai boxing is designed to be similar to a baseball bat and since they train their legs to be able to resists those kicks when the white guy threw the kick instead of hitting muscle he hit bone
