The front snap kick is one of the first kicks you learn in Taekwondo. In Korean it is called ‘ap chagi’.
The front kick can be performed using the front or rear leg. It is important that the toes are pulled back as the sole of the foot is being used to strike. Whilst the kick can be performed high for targets such as the throat and face, it is predominantly used lower targets such as the groin and solar plexus.
