The front kick is one of the most used blows in Muay Thai. Usually to stop an opponent’s attack or to catch your pace and balance. The front kick can be performed using both the front and back legs.
The point of contact of the blow should be the plant of the foot, but the heel is also used in some situations. It is important to keep your toes lifted, otherwise the foot has a higher risk of injury and the power of the blow also gets smaller.
It is essential to get hip boost to achieve greater strength. After the kick, the fighter must collect the leg quickly so as not to run the risk of having his foot grabbed by the opponent.
