One of my effective kick in sparring is the hook kick. It chambers like a side kick so the opponent does not know whats coming at them. Another is the round house kick but I do not chamber it. Have you seen how Bruce Lee does it? I believe it was in one of his audition video for "The Green Hornet". He does not chamber the kick but just bring his leg up and kick. The power comes from the turning of his hip.

the back kick can be very effective..........you step away from them and your opponent thinks your getting ready to run ,but you fire it back at them in surprise.

the AXE KICK is a simple technique that isn't used much in other martial arts, but can be quite devestating to your opponent. especially if they are shorter than you......because it goes above their head and then strikes downward with lots of power..........

I don't use the AXE kick... I'm a short guy with short legs, so that kick isn't very usefull.. I've try it.. but don't work well for me.
Thanks.

For me , my most efective sparring kick would be a fore leg frontkick or roundhouse followed by a spinning side kick. The fore leg usually makes your opponent side step. Then your spinning side kick can land as they step into it. Very powerful.
