Martial Arts Cartwheel Kick
This page provides information about the “Cartwheel Kick”. This acrobatic martial arts kick is often used as a fun “training tool” for younger students. However, it is occasionally used as a real kicking technique.
The cartwheel kick has been used in some mixed martial arts matches. While it is mainly used to entertain, the cartwheel kick has also scored a few knockouts because it is so unexpected. Please see the video below. The danger of this kick is that your head is exposed to a low kick as you do the cartwheel tumble. In addition, it is easy to become unbalanced and thus open for attack.
