When it comes to self defense everyone knows that their longest weapon is their legs. More often than not a person who decides to use a kick, specifically a roundhouse kick. The problem is unfortunately most people who learn to deliver the kick do it incorrectly.
You might be saying:
Wait a minute, my round kick is pretty powerful!
We come across people all the time who believe their roundhouse kick is powerful and while they do hurt and can do damage. More often than not they could do even more damage if they put their body behind the kick correctly.
Believe it or not how you deliver the kick is more important than how well you snap the kick. I remember when I was young my Karate Sensei told us to focus on snapping our kicks. And while snapping your kick is important I’d argue that it isn’t as important as delivering your kick correctly.
This means that you could have a fast kick and snap it but if you don’t know how to deliver the strike effectively you will do very little damage to your opponent.
A proper kick will drop your opponent quickly.
