Kicks

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.

Kicks are also used for kicking objects such as balls, books etc. If a human uses a kick in sport, it would most likely be used for kicking an object into a goal such as kicking a soccer ball into a goal and so on.

Famous quotes containing the word kicks:

    I am glad of this war. It kicks the pasteboard bottom in of the usual “good” popular novel. People have felt much more deeply and strongly these last few months.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    The techniques of opening conversation are universal. I knew long ago and rediscovered that the best way to attract attention, help, and conversation is to be lost. A man who seeing his mother starving to death on a path kicks her in the stomach to clear the way, will cheerfully devote several hours of his time giving wrong directions to a total stranger who claims to be lost.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
