How To Do A Butterfly Kick - Martial Arts Kicking Technique

This page provides details on how to do a martial arts butterfly kick. The butterfly kick is an acrobatic kicking technique used in martial arts such as Kung Fu (Wushu). A more advanced version of the butterfly kick is the butterfly twist kick. Given this kick's spectacular spinning motion, it is often used in martial arts demonstrations.

The butterfly kick has evolved into mainly a demonstration kick because if you don't hit an opponent perfectly, you are likely to land very awkwardly (possibly injuring yourself or sprawled out on the ground). Since it is a flying and twisting kick, the butterfly kick is very hard to control and would be difficult to employ well in a self-defense situation. In breaking demonstrations, martial artists usually use their heel to strike a target with a butterfly kick. For more instructions on different martial arts kicks, please visit our main kicking techniques page.
