Video Karate Lessons : Karate Front Kick for Beginners
How are you doing? My name is Qaeem and on
behalf of Expert Village, I’m going to be demonstrating Shorin-Ryu Karate. In Shorin-Ryu
Karate, I’m going to be demonstrating today, which is the front snap kick. The front snap
kick, we’re going to do this kick from the forward stance. We do this kick from the forward
stance because it gives you more power. It also gives you more leverage and more control.
Now once again, you are going to start on in the ready position, just as low you are
in a forward stance. You’re going to step out with your left foot, step out into forward
stance, weight going to the front leg, the back leg is facing the side. Your arms are
up. Now the front snap kick, you are going to bring your knee up center, kick out, bring
it back and down. Now you are going to be kicking out with the ball of your foot. That
is where you get the power; that is where you get control and that is where you stop
yourself from injuring yourself. Therefore, kick out with the front ball of your foot.
Now you can practice this by just getting on the ball of your foot, you can just bringing
it up. Now we are going to go out to the front forward stance. Guards up, front snap kick,
legs come up, kick out, back and down. You could do this in movements, one, two, three,
four…. Now you can also do this faster when you get better and you practice it more. You
will able to put in all in one move. Now we call this is the front snap kick because when
you bring your knee up, you shoot it out like a bullet and bring it back. You don’t shoot
it out and leave it out there. Shoot it out and bring it back. Front snap, kick. That is the front snap kick. My name is Qaeem
