The front kick is used to stop the aggressor’s forward momentum or to set him up for follow-on techniques when the aggressor is in front of you.
The striking surfaces are the toe of the boot or the bootlaces, depending on the target area.
Target Areas of the Body
The primary target areas are the aggressor’s groin, knee, shin, and inside thigh.
~ From the basic warrior stance, raise your right knee waist high and pivot your hips into the attack, thrusting your right foot forward toward the aggressor. You may have to shift your body weight to your left leg to maintain balance.
