How about the big low kicks they do? Obviously they hurt like hell, and after a while the leg cant be used, but what is physically happening to the leg, and where exactly do they aim?

I've been told to aim 3" above the knee. The aim is to crash the thigh. The siatic (sp?) nerve runs through the thigh, that's a good target, it is about 45-degrees outside of the center-back of the thigh. If that is hit, it's really great. If not, then the power of the kick will hopefully cause the thigh muscle work less effectively.
