^ this,Seems like all k-1 level kickboxers can throw a headkick in training on heavybags and when doing padwork

I seem to recall him winging a few at Sefo, if I'm not mistaken. But he's a lot more in love with his hands as of late.

EDIT:
Actually, he's always been a big hands guy, but he used to use knees and low kicks much more prominently.

saki can't throw a high kick? the guy can not only throw high kicks, but brazilian kicks as well. the truth is, even kickboxers who aren't super-flexible, can adapt their kicking motions to do high kicks. Hoost for example.
