List of Low Kicks - Martial Arts Kicking Techniques

This page provides details on martial arts low kicks. Low kicks are generally used to target areas below the waist. Low kick targets include the knee, ankle, calf, foot, etc.

Low kicks are frequently used in self-defense situations and full contact sparring matches (i.e. Mixed Martial Arts) because they are harder to block or grab. An opponent has a better chance to block or grab a high kick because it comes in range of their hands and arms. If an opponent can not evade a low kick, they may attempt to block a low kick with a shin block, cut kick, etc.

Many martial arts kicks can be considered low kicks if they are aimed below the waist. However, listed below are some common low kicks used by martial artists. For information on other kicking techniques (i.e. spinning hook kick or axe kick), please visit the main Martial Arts Kicking Techniques section. Students should only practice martial arts kicking techniques under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor.
