The Side Kick

This is one of the most powerful kicks and is used for most areas of the body. Lift the kicking leg as high as possible to the front of the body, curling the toes of the foot inward for protection.

Snap, and thrust the kick directly to the side and the target area; be sure to snap the hips into the kick for full power. The heel, or side of the heel, is the striking area. Keep the arm above the leg, down the side of your body to protect your ribs. This is probably the most devastating kick and the hardest to stop when done correctly.
