Kicks to the face, throat or shoulder, whether crescent, side, roundhouse or axe; how do you combat them, defend against them or otherwise survive them? Yes they're impractical in real-world application, but they do happen. They also tend to occur a lot in tournaments and 1-on-1 sparring. I don't do tournaments, and most of the people I've sparred never pulled them. But I'm curious, and this is a martial forum. DISCUSS!
