The push kick is the equivalent of a jab with the legs.
The push kick is a long range weapon that is a tool of distance and range.
This kick is a powerful, stable, and rangy technique which generates your full body weight into a very small and focused area.
The push kick is used as a range finder and to set up other techniques.
It is a conditioned initial response used to unbalance the opponent and disrupt breathing and rhythm.
The push kick can be thrown off either leg.
The front push kick works well at stalling and stopping an aggressive opponent in their tracks.
If your opponent is charging in trying to get close the front push kick is closest to them and can be delivered quickly to keep them at bay.
While it may not be the strongest technique, it has a lot of stopping power and can really take the air out of someone’s lungs.
The rear push kick is far more powerful, though slower and coming from further away.
This technique is very effective against aggressive opponents that like to get in close to try and overwhelm you.
You can either slam a rear push kick into your opponent’s body as they come in to attack or use it as a combination finisher after other strikes to create space.
The rear push kick will do a greater amount of damage to the opponent and will greatly unbalance them or drop them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How To Throw A Push Kick ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Begin in your fighting stance.
Shift the weight to one leg while lifting your knee to the chest.
Push your foot straight out at the target in an explosive release whilst thrusting your hips forward.
The power of the kick is generated by the hips.
Contact should be made with the ball of the foot or heel.
Once you have hit the target return to your stance by bringing the leg back the same way it went out.
Same side arm as kicking leg swings down to generate leverage and power behind your push kick.
Opposite arm stays up to protect your head.
