How to kick (simple explanation)

In 6DKF there is a wide variety of kicks (with different types of impact, loading, breathing, rotation, etc.), in this article we will show in the most simple and direct way one of the most educational kicks (useful to understand all the others).

So let's see how to deliver our first front kick (in a style similar to that of Shaolin kung fu, but also Taekwondo, Karate, etc.).

The preparation:

- Let's imagine being in a normal fighting stance (guard up)

- Let's imagine trying to kick with the front leg

- Let's relax the leg that will have to kick (especially from the knee)

- Let's focus on the idea to maintain our weight in the middle (no vibrations)

The kick:

- Let's lift the knee of the front leg towards our chest and inhale

- The back leg bends slightly (never maintain the legs stretched, impacts are absorbed very badly)

- The foot of the front leg disengaging from the ground assumes a perpendicular position relative to the ground

- Let's do not stretch our leg forward and let's try to go as high as possible with our knee

- Our weight must be forward but our head does not have to move forward or back too

- The back leg is well anchored to the ground for a more balanced and secure stroke, and it is supported on the fingers for a more versatile and quick stroke (it's the practitioner who has to choose the right assessment as appropriate)

- When reaching the maximum height with the knee, the vertical movement of the lower part of the leg that is attacking begins

- To increase the power of the kick we can counterbalance the uprising of the foot moving down our torso vertically (as for the levers principle)

- While the foot ascends leading to the target (by a curvilinear path) we have to exhale

- During the whole movement, it is good practice not to lower the guard (this guarantees a fundamental safety in case of failure of the technique)

- In situations of extreme safety (eg. when the opponent is totally unable to react) it is possible to lower the guard and strengthen the attack by adding the force of the push towards the back of the arms (from the guard position to over the hips)

- In any case, the guard must alter its shape so as not to hinder the action being taken

- Except for faints, the entire movement must be done with the intention of using the maximum speed / acceleration

The impact:

- There are no and there should be no side vibrations in this type of kick (for balance and non-dispersion of kinetic energy), the force moves vertically from bottom to top

- The typical target of this stroke is the central line of the opposing body (genitals, stomach mouth, chin, etc.)

- The whole movement must be like a whiplash, whose energy reaches its peak on the impact part (no flow interruption)

- The tip of the fingers and foot knuckles are the part of the impact for those who have a serious conditioning, for everyone else the choice is reduced to the part that goes from the ankle to the back of the foot (top) or below the base of the fingers (if we want to hit the bottom of the foot)

- If after a long conditioning we can strike with the fingers, at the last instant, we stiffen and turn them up; with the knuckles we have to close the fingers as a fist

- Especially with kicks we have to focus on the idea of hitting over the target; only in this way we will have the opportunity to release the maximum power and / or reach our target

The return:

- Never stay in extension for longer than necessary (the opponent can easily grab us, etc.)

- The return movement is equivalent to the attack one, it is its rewind

- Depending on the dynamic needs of the fight, we can choose to continue the action at will (landing with the leg back, forward, adding another kick, changing stance, etc.)


- If after the kick we can stay firm we ran the technique correctly but if we lose the balance (eg. backside) we distributed the weight badly and we cannot use the kicks in combat (read "The use of legs in a real fight")

- This type of kick may have a little backward loading but it does not need it (the charge telegraphs to the opponent our intentions, it can more useful as a faint)

- If we intend to use power to exercise this kick (eg. sequences of 25) we must opt for a soft target and not for empty shots

- This is a basic but foundamental kick, we'll see many more (some faster, some more unpredictable, some more powerful, etc.)

Later we will publish some important improvements on how and what to hit as well as the complete description of the details of an effective kick (for the most advanced practitioners).
