The underutilized but now current favorite for some MMA fighters… The Front Snap Kick! This is one of the first kicks anyone in martial arts usually learns but it is typically overshadowed by the more flashy and popular kicks. The ones that look cool like Round House Kick. Use it wisely and it can be a great strike!
Here are the basic steps of the Front Snap Kick laid out in a horizontal fashion as a quick reference guide. You may get the poster size of this by clicking on the picture.
Now that you have the basic steps, you must practice them and refine your technique. Get those motor skills programmed in and fine tune the mechanics. As I said before, I would work with an instructor on the details because there are a lot of details in between each step and far beyond the scope of this guide.
