The round kick is one of the most common skills found in martial arts. There's no doubting the sheer power a well executed kick can deliver. What is less known about the round kick, however, is that there are more than one way to throw it effectively.In this video, we explore a way to throw the kick that is quicker and more elusive than the standard "Thai" style kick. By using a front kick as a setup we can mask the approach of the kick within the chamber. Our opponent perceives a kick approaching from the front and responds accordingly, only to figure out the hard way that the kick was in fact redirected to attack from the side. It may not be as powerful, but it's speed and element of surprise make up for what it lacks, and can still be plenty strong to do enough damage when thrown well.
