Anderson Silva: Imitating The Famous Front Kick Anytime Anybody Talked About It
I admit that I used up almost all of my funny stories in my first piece, but I’ve saved two of my best for last. And wouldn’t you know it, my status as an Anderson Silva super-fan once again led me to do something embarrassing but fun.
What happened in the heat of the moment isn’t as funny as what happened for the few weeks after this fight, which is this: whenever I asked someone if they had seen the Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort fight, I would imitate the famous “Front Face Kick of Death” regardless of whether or not they had seen the fight.
Inevitably, when the talks turned to the kick, I would always say “Did you see that kick?! It was like BLAAAAAH!”
BLAAH, of course, would be my cue to step back and let loose my own Front Face Kick at thin air. I definitely remember the not-uncommon occurrence of my friends looking at me like I was a crazed idiot, but I also remember how much fun it was to relive that moment every time I threw what must have looked like the most pitiful kick ever attempted.
I also remember nearly falling flat on my face half a dozen times because I have just about the worst balance ever, but I also remember that feeling of “totally worth it!” whenever I managed to complete my little reenactment without hurting myself.
