List of Martial Arts Kicks

This page provides instructions for a wide variety of martial arts kicks such as the axe kick, spinning hook kick and flying back kick. It provides videos and/or written instructions for each of the kicks listed below in order to help you to learn that specific martial arts kicking technique.

Martial arts kicks should be practiced extensively because they are used in a wide range of different situations including self-defense, sparring, katas & forms, breaking techniques and demonstrations. These techniques should only be practiced under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor. Kicking techniques can be done either with bare feet or with martial arts shoes. Some martial arts styles even practice kicks with street shoes (as a martial artist is unlikely to find themselves wearing martial arts shoes or walking around with bare feet in a self-defense situation).

For additional kicking information, you should also visit the wiki's sections on leg flexibility (necessary for high kicks), leg strength, kicking power, kicking speed and knee strikes.
