The purpose of the round kick is to cause maximum damage to the knee or to set the aggressor up for follow-on techniques.
The striking surface is the bottom half of your shin (slightly above the ankle).
Target Areas of the Body
The primary target areas are the aggressor’s peroneal nerve (outer portion of the leg), femoral nerve (entire inside of the leg), knee, calf, and Achilles tendon.
~ Raise your rear leg slightly off of the deck, ensuring that the foot of the lead leg is pointed 45-degrees to the outside of the aggressor. With your knee slightly bent, pivot your hips and shoulders into the attack. Thrust your rear leg forward in an arcing motion toward your aggressor.
