Side Kick - Martial Arts Kicking Technique
This page provides details on how to do a martial arts side kick. Side kicks are powerful kicks but tend to be slower than other basic martial arts kicks (i.e. roundhouse kick). For example, you have to rotate your body, chamber your kick and then fire out the side kick versus just launching a roundhouse kick directly at the target. Nevertheless, given its power, a side kick can a very effective self-defense weapon.
