Mastering the front is an easy process once you know and have the ability by following the steps laid out in this article. There has been tremendous concerns and problems for martial artists to master the front kick but it's time to de-mystify the whole myth.

I know that everyone will teach martial artist to do the following in executing a front kick:

1. Bring the knee up first of the kick leg.

2. Once you bring you knee up as far as possible then kick straight out with the ball of the foot of the kicking leg.

3. Then you just have to bring the kicking leg back to the level of the supporting knee

4. Then bring it down to the floor

The above sequence is the way that 99% of all martial artists are taught and there is nothing wrong with this type of teaching if you only want to achieve an average level of level for the front kick.

Here is the steps you need to master the front kick while having the ultimate speed and power:

1. The key secret is the beginning and ending of the kick. You must curl your toes up even before you start to initiate the kick

2. Then while still having your toes curled up kick with your whole leg in one fluid motion. Make sure that you do not bring the foot up too high and then kick out. It's done in one motion.

3. The crucial part of the kick is at contact just snap the ankle forward that hitting the target with the ball of the foot.

Remember it is not necessarily the speed of the leg that is important but it's the elimination of individual movements into one fluid motion with the ankle snapping the ball of the foot right at the end of the kick that will give you the power and speed.

Important:

Always make sure the your curl your toes up through the kick, then kick in one flowing movement … and just snap your ankle and let the ball of the foot hit the target.
