The Unstoppable Low Kick | Technique Video
Why do we not see more fight finishes with the low kick in Muay Thai, Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts?
Possibly it is a fear of commitment against an opponent who knows how to block properly. To some, the image of Anderson Silva’s broken tibia may come to mind. Of course there are repercussions & counters to every technique that we commit to. There even are repercussions to checking a kick; but, what if you can use your opponent’s block to your advantage?
They say that it is the most safe to go around the fire, but I say. . . we go through it like men [or women, and non-bianary people]. I call this technique the “unstoppable low kick” because it provides you with a solution to an opponent with a “weak check”, and the explosive fake to those who have a strong check.
Learn both techniques and your opponent won’t be going out anywhere the night of the fight:
Make sure to pay attention to the footwork within the video and listen to each cue. I have been able to successfully implement this technique, finishing a number of fights with the rear low kick. I hope to see you run into the same form of success.

The way we pattern our brain and body to work in training is the way that it will respond in sparring and in the fight. I personally use a set number of these drills as a warm up with a partner or on the pads backstage before walking out to perform my favorite form of savagery.
It gets my body and mind in-sync, with the right engagement and balance everything flows. With good defense, the offense just automatically flows out of my body and all becomes seamless. Expect for it to do the same for you, it’s time to get to work.
