In this video, Russell Jarmesty show us his favourite strike – the front kick.
There are many uses for the front kick, from Karate’s Mae Geri – whether snap kick (keage) to thrust kick (kekomi) which again are used differently to Muay Thai’s Teep kick.
Russ however is demonstrating the kick’s usage in a real confrontation. In 15 years as a doorman the front kick served him well in many scenarios.
Here he not only demonstrates the move, but also how to “bait” the assailant.
