Bend right leg, lifting knee as high
as possible, keeping upper body straight. Pull toes back pointing
ball of foot to target.

Extend kicking foot toward target by pushing hip forward. Let upper body lean back slightly to provide thrust to hip and snap kick forward.

Note that two positions before the kick are identical to two positions after the kick (1 & 6), (3 & 5).
