Most schools and levels of taekwondo have different techniques, and not all of them are mentioned. Techniques are frequently integrated into a shorter set (Hyeong), though this varies by school.


The following are some of the most well-known Taekwondo kicks:

  • Ap chagi (front kick): This is a fairly linear kick. The practitioner brings his knee to his waist, draws his toes back, and extends his foot fast at the target. The snap kick is another name for it. The front kick is one of the first kicks taught in taekwondo, and it may become one of the most powerful if mastered. This method is designed to drive the attacker away, yet it can hurt the opponent.
  • Sidekick (yeop chagi): A powerful kick in which the practitioner extends their leg while simultaneously raising their knee and rotating their body 90 degrees. This technique should be employed in WTF-style taekwondo with the outside edge of the foot, yet the heel may generate additional force if sparring.
  • The practitioner elevates the knee, rotates the hips, pivots on the non-kicking foot, and snaps the kick horizontally into the target at an 80 to 90-degree angle, either with the instep or with the ball of the foot with the toes pulled back (dollyeo chagi).
  • Back kick (dwit chagi): The practitioner turns away from the target and pushes the back leg straight toward it, hitting it with the heel while keeping an eye on the target. This kick has a lot of strength thanks to the rotating action. Using this strike without adequate care will cause you to “spin out” and lose your balance.
  • Reverse sidekick (bandage yeop chagi): This kick is similar to the back kick, except that the body twists even more, allowing the heel to strike the target with the foot pointed to the side, rather than downward, as in a real back kick.
  • Huryeo chagi (hook kick): huryeo chagi (hook kick) is a Korean martial art. It’s a less common kick in the past, but it’s gaining popularity in recent competitions. The practitioner elevates the knee in a roundhouse kick-like motion, stretches the foot outward, and snaps it around in a dorsal arc with the heel as the intended hitting weapon.
  • Another kick that has gained popularity due to sparring events is the ax kick (naeryeo chagi). Like an outside crescent kick, the leg is normally elevated from the outside of the torso. The leg is then dragged down, the heel pointing downward. It is usually directed at the head, shoulder, or chest, and it needs a great deal of flexibility to use efficiently. This kick works well against the collarbone, which is easily broken by this technique. The kick’s initial lift setup can be done from the inside or center (straight up and down.)
