Didn't want to make an additional thread with basically the same question, but how important are kicks (body or lower) in a street fight, or when defending ones self?

I know in a MMA fight, ala Aldo VS Faber, leg kicks are devastating over time, but in terms of getting into an actual street brawl and attempting to defend yourself, are leg kicks a good weapon to add to your arsenal? Being that a street fight wouldn't go anywhere as long as a 5x5 round MMA fight.

Street fights dot have 5x5 rounds nor is there a ref with rule regulation. A low kick to to the nuts of a man with be very powerful.

On another note, to kick somebody who has never been leg kicked can be quite a stun..

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I wasn't sure how effective a leg kick could be if your in a quick street brawl that doesn't last long, at the same time though, I've never taken a brutal leg kick in a fight so I am not sure the effectiveness of said kick. But good to know, I need to get a little more flexible, so I can get my leg up to someones head. Best I can throw without going completely off balance is a kick to the shoulder.

Hope everyone training mma is for competition, health or self defence sake and not for causing trouble and getting into fights!

Oh absolutely. Purely Health, Confidence, Discipline, and Self Defense. I would certainly avoid any and all altercations that I can

Yes kicks are important. As important as punches? probably not but still worthwhile to learn and can be very deadly if used properly.

leg kicks helps mix things up and keep the opponent guessing. a low leg kick may not be as deadly as a right hook to the jaw but it wears down the leg if continued and can take out the spring of the opponents leg making his movement less sharp.
Body kicks are very power and generates alot of power that can stun or knock out an opponent. The last roundhouse kick i remember in ufc is franklin vs hamil, and in terms of spinning heel kick, it was cung le vs...scott smith.
High leg kicks.. i dont need to say anyting bout that, just watch cropcop!
The vunlerable side of kicks are you can be taken down if you get your legs caught!
