Front Kick

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.

Striking Surface

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.

Technique

~ 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.
~ Never extend your foot above waist high because it is difficult to maintain power and it is easier for the aggressor to counter by blocking or catching your leg. Keep in mind it is difficult to change the direction of a kick after it is initiated because you have limited movement on one leg.
~ Make contact on the aggressor with the toe of your right boot or bootlaces.
~ Follow through the primary target area with your foot and leg.
~ Rapidly return to the basic warrior stance.
