There are a large number of kicks.   We only cover the most basic.   There are no hign kicks, no spinning kicks, no jump kicks.  There are no toe kicks  (and if we each  had a dollar for every broken toe, we would all live in bigger houses).

All of these kicks are delivered looking at the target.  Once it is this seious, forget about trying to fake someone out, KicK them hard and repeat.
