Front Kick in Kickboxing
There is a difference between the rear leg and lead leg in regards to front kicks. Lead leg is a little bit more defensive. The rear leg is a little bit more offensive. Lead leg, it’s more about stopping somebody in their path. I’m going to stop them from coming in towards me.
So, lead kick. Stop it. Coming at me. Knee up. Coming right back and right back. Now rear leg, like I said, is a little bit more powerful because it’s coming from the back. It has more time to travel forward. The rear leg is the same deal. You just want to make sure, you always come back to your stance. You don’t want to do this. You don’t want to come up, kick, and fall forward.
It’s very important, guys, with your rear leg, is that you do not fall forward. You’re going to step into your opponent’s range or paunch or whatever, and then make sure you come up, kick, and come right back to your stance. Your lead leg up, kick, slowly come right back to your stance. Come right back to your stance. Come right back to your stance. Come right back to your stance. Come right back to your stance. Make sure one hand stays up, unless you’re going pretty high, then you can drop both hands. For the most part, one hand always is staying right up, pumping the same arm from the same leg. That’s how you do a front kick.
