    Front Kick:
    The front kick, also known as a Teep kick in Muay Thai, is the most fundamental of the three and is taught in introductory kickboxing lessons. It's a long-range method in which you use your bottom foot to push and strike the punching bag.

    As a result, the front kick is typically the safest kick in kickboxing. Toes should not be used to kick the punching bag. Though that is the only way to truly harm oneself, and you would immediately recognize it since it doesn't feel right.

    RoundHouse Kick:
    Do you recognize the term "roundhouse kick"? If you're a fan of martial arts movies, you've probably heard of it. If you don't believe me, consider the following scenario: A fighter bends his hips to one side, lifts his front knee, and extends his leg to hit their opponent with the top of their foot.

    The roundhouse is one of the most prevalent kicks, but it's also one of the most difficult for the opponent to deal with. If you're familiar with other martial arts, such as Taekwondo and Karate, you'll notice that they strike their target or opponent with the top of their foot.
