It is a Muay Thai technique used well before Savate incorporated it. Called the stab kick - closely related to the teep kick and taught all the time. You will pad holders using it slowly all the time. Great technique with work boots and jeans giving more purchase.
Should always be allowed in MMA - if Muay Thai has coped with it why not MMA?
