Front Kick

Martial Arts Front Kick

This page provides details on how to do a martial arts front kick. While a front kick is a very basic kick, it is useful for self-defense situations such as kicking an attacker in the groin. Most basic front kicks either hit the target with either the top of the foot or the ball of the foot.

In Karate, a front kick is known as Mae Geri. In Taekwondo, it is known as Ap Chagi.
