Outside Crescent Kick - Martial Arts Kicking Technique

This page provides details on how to do a martial arts outside crescent kick. The crescent kick is used in many different martial arts styles. For example, the outside crescent kick is known as Bandal Bakkat Chagi in Taekwondo. In Karate, this kick is known as Mikazuki Geri. The outside crescent kick can also be known in English as an out-to-in crescent kick, inwards crescent kick, etc.

This inside crescent kick travels in a circular motion or arc from the outside to the inside. It strikes an opponent with the inside edge of the foot (or heel of foot in a "crescent axe kick" hybrid variation). An outside crescent kick can be easier to throw than the inside crescent kick. The outside crescent kick is often used when you are in close and you want to "loop" a kick around an opponent's body in order to strike their head or bring the foot down on their clavicle.
