The 4th toe on my right foot has been bothering me - specifically, when turning as the pivot foot during a side or roundhouse kick. It doesn't bother me during kata.

It's not exactly pain - it just feels weird, but not a good weird as my natural instincts tell me to stop what I'm doing. I can't really describe the feeling though.

I want to try taping it to see if that helps. Does anyone have any experience with this? Would I tape it to the 3rd toe or the 5th? 2nd and 3rd because those three often move together?

Thanks

I would tape it to the 2nd and 3rd.

I agree wholeheartedly!! Oftentimes, taping is all one can do in your situation. I'd try to avoid doing anything that would exacerbated the problem.

Good luck and hang in there, Radagast!!
