Kick

In combat sports and hand-to-hand combat, a kick is a physical strike using the foot, leg, or knee (the latter is also known as a knee strike). This type of attack is used frequently, especially in stand-up fighting. Kicks play a significant role in many forms of martial arts, such as Taekwondo, Karate, Pankration, Kung fu, Vovinam, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Capoeira, Silat, and Kalarippayattu.

Famous quotes containing the word kick:

    I had to kick their law into their teeth in order to save them.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    I had to kick their law into their teeth in order to save them.
    However I have heard that sometimes you have to deal
    Devilishly with drowning men in order to swim them to shore.
    Or they will haul themselves and you to the trash and the fish beneath.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    How did you feel feeding doughnuts to a horse? Had a kick out of it, huh? Got a big laugh. Did you ever think of feeding doughnuts to a human being? No!
    Robert Riskin (1897–1955)
