Kickboxing kicks The modern kickboxing kick technique was borrowed from taekwondo: attacking actions, the original manner of leg movements during blocking, movements and a variety of different actions performed in a jump allow athletes to shine with different sides of their fitness (speed, coordination, etc.) . Kicks are very specific. Several basic varieties of them are distinguished: punches, piercing, pushing, crushing, sweeping, jumps. Depending on the height of the affected area, strikes are divided into high, medium and low. In this section, the basic rules for performing and staging the following kicks will be revealed: Side kick (side kick) Front kick (direct kick) Round kick (round kick) Ex-kick (top kick) Back kick (back kick) Ternig heal kick (back-kick)
General rules for striking: 1. The maximum use of extension of the knee joint of the supporting leg. 2. The body weight should be transferred along the striking leg to the place of its contact with the opponent’s body, and then back to the supporting leg. 3. The supporting leg should provide good stability to the body. 4. Before starting a strike, the body must be given the necessary orientation with respect to the location of the opponent. 5. At the moment of shock interaction, the foot of the supporting leg should be motionless. 6. At the moment of impact interaction, the heel of the supporting leg cannot be torn off the floor. 7. To ensure stability, the knee of the supporting leg (with the exception of pressing impacts) should be slightly bent (not to be confused with the maximum extension of the knee joint!). 8. The object of attack and the distance to it must first be carefully verified. It is also necessary to always remember that in addition to these general principles, there are peculiarities in the execution of each kick. In addition, it should be borne in mind that it is important not only to strike a powerful and an exact hit, but also quickly pull the attacking leg back to its original position in order to avoid capture, as well as in order to prepare the next technical steps.
