    Watching in slo-mo, I cant tell if the big toe or the bottom of the foot makes contact with the jaw.

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    It's the ball off the foot, but the chin isn't really solid enough to really break your toe on if an accident does happen

    I would bet prime Mark Hunt's jaw bone against your right big toe, any day.

    The kick is performed with the ball of the foot, not the toes.
    Takes an incredible amount of precision to land in a fight.

    I think I have a good tech to guard against this high teep to the chin, but it will fuck up your training partner very easily (practicing it). It's a very common, Muay Thai entry move.

    You're supposed to curl your toes back when you front kick, it takes a little practice but not much.

    Is it a downward elbow type thing intercepting the kick ?
