A Power Kick (น้อง) is a type of kick which uses the whole body to generate force. This type of kick is used primarily when striking an opponent with your hands or feet. Generally speaking, they are used for offense and defense, but not exclusively so. Some of the techniques found in a power kick are; side kicks, front kicks, hooking kicks, axe kicks, push kicks and jumping kicks. Power Kicks are known to be very powerful when used with full force. It is for this reason that you should only use this technique when you intend to subdue an opponent completely. They are the kinds of techniques which can even break bones, especially if you aren’t careful.
