Hey so when i first started training, i really liked the sidekick so i just sparred sidekicking at people over and over. eventually i got pretty good and i learned how to do a hook kick and a snapping sort of roundhouse kickoff of the same chamber. but i am 5'8 so i dont have long reach and i started just punching more. how can i utilize these techniques in an mma situation. [EDIT]once when i was sparring somebody i flinched and flailed a hook kick towards their feet and somehow knocked them to the ground with just a kick...can someone tell me what i did exactly?
