    There is a time and place for them. When set up properly they can be effective. To just switch kick for the sake of it is not a good tactic unless it is being use as a setup for something else.

    would it be bertter to just throw a regular lead leg kick to the body? or is a switch kick better for that? (in most cases)

    It depends on the situation. There isn't a set moment where you should use either; only when it feels right. Don't overcomplicated your approach by using a switch kick, when a normal kick will do the exact same job, but faster.

    You're either imagining it, or have a really slow lead kick
