Learn Karate's Kakato Otoshi Geri or Axe Kick
This page provides details on how to do a Kakato Otoshi Geri or Karate axe kick. This kick is sometimes only called Kakato Geri. Kakato Otoshi Geri means "dropping heel kick".
An axe kick is often used against targets such as the head or shoulder bone of an attacker. However, this kick should be selectively utilized as you are exposing your groin to a counter attack.
