Crescent Kick - Instructions & Videos
This page provides details on how to do a martial arts crescent kick. The crescent kick is used in many different martial arts styles. For example, the crescent kick is known as Bandal Chagi in Taekwondo and Mikazuki Geri in Karate. A crescent kick can strike an opponent with the outside edge of the foot or the heel of foot in a "crescent axe kick" hybrid variation.
While there are a variety of crescent kicks (see below), the most basic crescent kicks are the Inside Crescent Kick (in-to-out crescent kick) and the Outside Crescent Kick (out-to-in crescent kick). For more instructions on different martial arts kicks (i.e. spinning hook kick), please visit our main Martial Arts Kicks section.
