Shin Kick

Shin Kick – Martial Arts

This page provides details on how to do a martial arts shin kick (also known as the “Muay Thai Kick”). A shin kick is often used in Kickboxing and Muay Thai due to its power and ability to knock opponents off their feet. In this kick, you strike your opponent with your shin versus the top of your foot or instep as done in a roundhouse kick.
