The kickboxing ring is home to several Ashihara Karateka(s) who are also highly decorated in popular promotions like K-1 World Grand Prix, GLORY Sports International and It's Showtime (kickboxing). Among them is Semmy Schilt, who is widely regarded as one of kickboxing's all-time greats.
The 'Diagonal Kick' described in this video is referred to as 'Triangle Kick' or 'sankaku geri' (三角蹴り) in Ashihara Karate. The kick, which is a hybrid between a Front Kick and a Roundhouse Kick is primarily used to strike at the opponent's mid-section by bypassing the opponent's guarding elbow.
Compared to the traditional roundhouse kick, the triangle kick is executed as a 'snap-action' rather than a swing. This way, the kick is both easier to retrieve and harder to be caught by the opponent, making it a highly efficient, yet low-risk technique to use in the ring.
Enjoy and OSU!
