Axe Kick: Power Development

The Axe kick is one of those kicks that either misses completely or lands on something. Head, nose, jaw, shoulder, arm, even chest. Most people don’t expect it and when faked or set up by another technique it often lands.
The biggest question I been getting about the Axe kick over years is: Can it be powerful enough to knock people out? It can be, but I only entertain this question from people who have the flexibility to throw it.
Let’s be honest. A front kick, side, roundhouse, etc can be thrown to the knee. An Axe kick is usually to the head. So flexibility is needed or it’s a useless discussion. Now, if you can have the range for the kick, we can talk about power. (I don’t want you to waste your time, if you are trying to work on a power of the technique without having the proper technique).



Pelvis is the accelerator of the kicking leg regardless of the kick. The Axe kick is no exception. The difference is in the muscles that accelerate the Axe Kick, compared to other kicks. If you want to see the anatomical break down of the kick. Here you go.

Take a look at this video to learn more about Axe Kick Kinesiology Break Down:

So while the kick can deliver quite a shock, proper timing of the chain is essential. Most people just don’t have the muscles trained in proper ranges to feel that timing. Think about it: How powerful is a downward stomp? What about a jump with a stomp?

What about that stomp with a longer lever?

Crazy powerful. However you can’t do a stomp to the head of a standing person, but with an Axe Kick you can. A stomp is instinctive, but the kick is not. So it needs to be developed. The development is rather simple. Strength is established fist. It’s followed by focusing on kicking and the supporting leg in the proper range.
Next comes emphasis on the Axe Kick chain with a longer lever in a comfortable range. The range keeps being increased till the chain can be fully activated in the kicking height needed. Once that is done, faces are ready to be kicked. (In a friendly way, hopefully).
