Thursday evening, practicing push kick. Push kick, also called defensive front kick, is a great technic to create distance or keep the aggressor away from you; Lifting the knee as high as possible and pushing the hips forward while extending to leg in an explosive motion is the key to generate power behind this kick.
Look at this scene in Ong Bak 1, when Tony Jaa is executing one of the best push kick of martial art movie history. Straight to the face! You can feel the power. Beautiful!
