Round Kick

The purpose of the round kick is to cause maximum damage to the knee or to set the aggressor up for follow-on techniques.

Striking Surface

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.

Technique

~ 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.
~ You will have to shift your body weight to your left leg to maintain your balance. Ensure that the foot of the lead leg is pointing 45-degrees to the outside of the aggressor.
~ With your lead leg slightly bent, extend your rear leg toward your aggressor in an arcing motion. Thrust your rear hip and shoulder forward to generate additional power.
~ Make contact on the aggressor with the shin of the rear leg or the top of the foot and follow through the primary target area.
~ Rapidly return to the basic warrior stance.
