lol I know; in real fighting giving up your center of balance or doing any kind of kick above the hip is basically suicide. But if you were a master ... you wouldn't have to worry so much!! True, it's not very practical, but if you can kick your opponents' butts it would be that much more awesome to do it in style. xD
If the opponent using katana you would minus a leg. But if say it a master, he should already know how to handling the risk of his art.
Play Metal Gear Solid 3 or 4. In reality, it's basically martial arts that taught to military forces (although it varies from country to country... Indonesia teach Pencak Silat to it's army and Thailand is Muathai). If I'm not mistaken, US SWAT members and UK SAS learn this... in fact, this moves is popularized during WW2 when SAS used this moves on the Nazi.
This is not a pure martial arts and more mix-and-match martial arts. The main moves of this martial art is disarmament of enemy's weapons, throw them/incapacitate them in some way, could also be used in conjunction of other arms (usually knifes). Of course you do this only when you don't have weapons to fight (not like MGS where you do this instead of relying on firearms).
This martial arts is not taught to civilian, and there's one book that teach about this, get pulled off no long after the release. And that book become training book for SWAT/military personnel.
I think there's an article about this on Wikipedia.
I do Muay Thai and No-gi Jiu Jitsu.
Really, more of a grappler than I am a kickboxer though.
I feel that for women, no-gi jiu jitsu/submission grappling is the best form of self defense. I mean, I'm 5' tall and only about 103lbs, if a guy wants me on the ground I'm going to end up on the ground. However, I know how to get the f-ck away, even if they guys 100lbs larger than I am (most of my training partners are even more than that ;-; ). Despite this, most women I try to convince to at least TRY it, are too grossed out by the positions and being on the ground wrestling with another person, and/or they're afraid of getting hurt. Both are completely ridiculous. When you're grappling, you don't really think about the contact (at least I don't), and trust me, I'm a vicious little biatch, when I'm trying to break your arm you're more concerned with defending yourself. As for the second part, while I have gotten pretty injured from grappling, when you're not training at competition level the most you'll get is a couple bruises now and then. [/rant]
BRAG TIME: My bf is 4-0 in MMA right now, he's pretty awesome.
