The Efficacy of Leg Kicks


The WEC card on Saturday night is one of the best MMA fights I have seen in months! All the fights were fantastic battles full of action and technique, all of which were crowned by the leg whooping Urijah Faber took at the hands of Jose Aldo. I do not normally cover too much MMA here on the GNM, but take a look at the next day picture of Fabers leg and tell me that leg kicks are not some of the most effective tools in our arsenal as martial artists!? Leg kicks are high percentage strikes that are brutal (keep in mind Faber is a trained athlete, imagine your average Joe picking a fight on the streets!), and are pretty low risk in terms of counters (compared to head or body kicks).

Train (your leg kicks AND defense's) Hard. Train Smart
