When you get hit by a feint, does it hurt? One man's feint is another man's clean miss.
Two Sarge's on the same thread!
It can even hurt when you're the one doing the fake kick. I broke my toe that way once. The other guy rushed in while the fake kick was being delivered (the fast part before the strength is applied) and I connected with his knee! Ouch (then had a grading about a week later. More ouch. Passed though).
The fake kick is usually just to set up the next technique, as opposed to a jab, which, although it can do the same thing, is also a strike (but you knew that).
