Keri-waza - Kicking

In martial arts, a kick is a strike using the foot, leg or knee.

 

Kicks are often used in hand-to-hand combat, especially in stand-up fighting. Many believe the size and weight of the leg makes it a more powerful weapon than the arm, and its length means it is easier to keep opponents at a distance with a kick, than a punch.

 

Simple kicks aimed at vulnerable targets below the chest may be highly efficient but should be executed with a degree of care. It is important that karateka do not compromise balance while delivering a kick, and retract the leg properly to avoid  their opponent grabbing the leg and striking, or sweeping out the supporting leg.
