""A problem with it is, just like with most kicks higher than the groin, the foot/leg can be grabbed and you're in for a take down and possible stomping.  " That's the whole premise behind sanshou / sanda.  "

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.
