Since there is a wide variety of style on here I am interested to know what you think is the most effective kick for the street?

Please state your reasons and art you practise,thanks.

Muay Thai roundhouse kick to the knee...

It's quick, it's strong, and if he can't move then he can't fight.

Besides the rounhouse kick to the legs.
A good front kick to the groin is pretty effective..
Also a quick side kick to the side of the knee is also pretty efective.
The simple basic kicks are pretty good for self defense.. Its not only matter of the kick itself but where you throw it.
peace.

glad you mentioned for the street.
if there is no other way out of the situation:

i prefer knee/shin kicks/ and sweeps; works well to get extra time to think.

lastly and always, avoid confortation whenever possible.

violence is always the last alternative. and only to protect your or yours life and the innocent/weak.

I thnk the Thai round kick is effective in the street and the ring. It's a very basic kick and few people actually know how to defend against it.

From a TKD stance, I can see your point. In Muay Thai we stand more square, so our rear weapons are close enough to be effective. Plus, most people want to block the kick with their hand.. if they block a Thai round kick with the hand, their hand will be useless afterwards.

Any kick that does any damage is an effective kick. In the dojo, there are rules. In tournaments there are rules. In real life fight, there are NO rules. (except rule of law, but we won't go into that)
