    We've been using that kick for well over forty years.

    And the best counter to that kick, which you have to watch out for when throwing it, is the person holding the foot or the leg - let's go when you throw it. You usually screw yourself into the ground, hard.

    I learned that kick when I was like 9. Thought it was fun at first, then thought it was silly, then thought it was a balance exercise. Cool to see it actually used.

    ha ha ha.. soooooooo True. I actually have a video of this exact same thing. The key to prevent that is to not depend on the person holding the foot. Think of it as putting as much weight on one leg to escape the grip and the other leg to kick. If you do the kick as if the person is going to continue to hold you, then that's when you get that nasty fall.
