Written Instructions for a Back Kick

  • Start in your kicking stance. You will use your rear leg in this kick.
  • If you are in a right kicking stance, turn your body to the right until you are facing directly away from your target. During this movement, you should pivot on your left foot.
  • Continue turning to the right and look over your right shoulder (look at your target - you need to see what you are hitting). Lift your right knee to your chest (think of kicking like a mule).
  • Drive the heel of your foot straight back towards your opponent.
  • After hitting your target, quickly resume kicking stance so you can prepare for your next kick.
  • For more power, try stepping forward and then starting your back kick. You will gain more forward momentum and you will be doing a spinning back kick.
