In boxing/martial arts: one of the weapons of the naked human body. The foot has several prominent striking surfaces in the heel, the ball of foot, the blade (side of foot), and the top (instep). Because of the relative interchangeability with the top of foot (instep), and the shin-bone, the shin and foot are lumped in the same strata as kicking attacks (feet) are known.
The foot is a very misunderstood weapon as far as martial arts go. Generally, the effecient useage of the foot is to strike lower body targets (shin, groin, knee, foot, stomach). However, the range of the foot combined with the power of leg-muscle covers a vast distance that provides alot of stopping power. Depending on the executor of a kicking attack, striking any known bodily target of a standing human is not beneath the foot's documented useage.
The foot is one of many weapons to the true fighter; especially an unarmed one.
