The original anon asked about spin kicks being useful and you were trying to argue that they were and now in your response you’re implying front kicks are effective and you struggle with kickboxers.
That was the whole point, it’s better for conditioning than training. Front kicks are not unique to Tkd and Muay Thai technique is better.

>This is what training is supposed to be for, to practice and improve abilities until they are applicable IRL.
There’s an element you can’t train in a street fight, tkd just makes certain crucial mistakes more likely to happen. Why train against overextension when you can just do some low kicks or something else in the first place.
I can throw high kicks very easily and very fast to the face, I still wouldn’t risk it in a street fight unless I saw the opponent was weak/slow.
> Also on the topic of looking behind and wasting time. You do that with the momentum of the kick.
