This kick focuses all of your strength onto a toe or toes, converting your blow from crushing to piercing. This lets you target the vitals or eyes. Roll against Lethal Kick to hit, applying the usual hit location penalties. Damage is thrust-1 plus your Karate bonus. Hurting Yourself (p. B379) applies if your target has any DR - not just DR 3+.

Lethal Kick is generally impossible while wearing fully enclosed shoes or boots, but the GM might allow it with such pointy footwear as cowboy boots and stiletto heels -especially in a cinematic campaign!

As combat options, Lethal Kick and Lethal Strike (below) are reasonable even in a realistic game. The techniques are cinematic because only warriors with Trained by a Master can improve them.
