Kung-Fu Kicks Becoming An Epidemic In Soccer (Video)

It all seemed to begin at the World Cup final in Johannesburg, when the Netherlands’ Nigel De Jong delivered a flying kung-fu kick to the chest of Spain’s Xabi Alonso.¬† Since then we have seen similar incidents in amateur soccer games, and now during an exhibition match between Real Madrid and the L.A. Galaxy.

Has the seemingly rare kung-fu kick in soccer suddenly turned into an epidemic?

The Galaxy’s Juninho was the player on the receiving end of this vicious cleat-first aerial attack from Real’s Royston Drenthe.¬† It should come as little surprise that Drenthe is also Dutch, and therefore likely learned some of his martial arts moves from fellow countryman De Jong.
