A front snap is a variation of front kick. It is basically the jab of kicks, and done with the lead leg. It is quickly chambered and snapped out to the target (torso, face) with a modest degree of force, and returned immediately to the starting position. The striking surface is the ball of the foot. Front snaps are not done with the same follow-through as a side kick or front thrust, and speed, timing, and accuracy are the focus over power.
