When you strike, your strike power and speed matter. If you have power on your strike, but you are not fast, you cannot hit the target. If it's an opponent, he will move from there or defend your strike easily. If you are fast, it is difficult to defend. Your opponent has to be faster to defend that.
To have an impact and make the damage, you need to generate power on your strike. Let's watch an interesting video where four different martial artists kick and then they measure their kicking power and speed. You can watch this video clip on YouTube.
You can find a little variation of kicks in different martial arts. If you watch the video, you know how they are doing. Everyone is doing a roundhouse kick, but the karate practitioner did a front kick.
I don't know why he did a front kick, otherwise he had a chance to compete better. It does not make sense. Maybe I miss something, please feel free to let me know in the comment section.
Only based on a practitioner, you can judge the entire system of a particular martial art. If you are great at what you practice, you can generate speed and power that other practitioners of the same discipline cannot generate that level of speed and power.
Capoeira practitioner's moves are different and interesting. It is like dancing and striking from there. It is not very obvious when they strike and attack. He has power on his strike. You usually do not fight on the street for self defense like that, I think. That's how they practice and make their move. Probably I saw this guy in movies.
What do you think about the speed and power of kicks? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. Thank you so much for watching the video.
Stay safe. Always be happy!
