Which Style Has The Best Kicking Techniques?
For as many different styles of martial arts, there are just as many philosophies on kicking techniques. Some emphasize speed and some power. Some as follow through, thrust, or snap. Which is better? None. Different situations call for different kicking methods. Now, the karate and tae kwon do fighters will use more of a controlled snap. The kickboxers and thai boxers will kick through. For me, I use a cross between the two (snap with a little follow throw). I don't try to kick hard when I kick. I relax and let my legs whip out without locking the joint (bad on the knees).
