Kicking with the ball of your foot is a legitimate technique, we see it employed all the time in MMA. Its not as crippling as you're making it out to be, unless it lands in a vital spot in which case a kick with the shin will likely be as effective. Its also a much more difficult technique to successfully execute... using your example is it easier to hit a moving target with the head of a hammer or a baseball bat?

There are pros and cons to every style, dude. There is no trump card. They don't all use the same technique. Most of them use similar techniques, but if there really were a one-style-beats-all, someone would have adopted it and started winning already. Hasn't really happened. The hammer thing: What's on the end of a hammer? solid hunk of metal. What's on the end of a leg? Foot with lots of small bones. Good risk of hurting your foot, that's why I don't like those kicks. However, they work well for some folks, just not me.

Also, that shit they're doing in the GIFs is breaking their opponents' leg in half so I think it works pretty fuckin' well. As someone who has done a little muay thai, however, checking a kick and eating one feel nothing alike. Checking also provides you a chance to throw your opponent off balance.

Defending whilst throwing: Keep off hand all blocky-blocky and roll the shoulder of punch hand. Shoulder protects jaw. That's what I see most of them doing before they gas. When fighters get tired, that can go out the window pretty quickly.

Lastly, though: If their technique is inadequate, why hasn't someone come in with your technique and risen to the top with little to no resistance?

Except what I'm talking about isn't the kicking with the top of the foot. I fully acknowledge that doing so is retarded and it is super easy to fuck someone up that does try and do that. But think about how you kick a soccer ball if you want it to really go far without giving a fuck about accuracy. What do you do? You kick it like you're swinging a hammer, as in with a straight foot connecting with your toes instead of the flat. Now kick a person like that instead of with your shin, and you're going from hitting the guy with a pole to striking them more precisely with a hammer. Of course you'll probably bring up the fact of mashing your toes, and to that I say that's why you pull your toes up albeit definitely need to be bent further than the person in the picture to connect with this part of the foot instead. Congratulations, you now have a for more penetrating roundhouse kick to really punch into those sensitive nerves and disable the guy immediately.

Great points, especially the last one. Apparently everyone in the world is just learning the wrong technique except for this kid.
