Side Kick in Taekwondo Sparring

Side Kick In Taekwondo Sparring

This page looks at how to use a side kick effectively in Taekwondo sparring. A side kick is not used frequently in Taekwondo sparring. It is a very powerful kick but slower than many other kicks (i.e. roundhouse kick) because a person must “cock” the leg first before throwing the side kick.
