A strike is a physical attack either with a part of the body or with a weapon intended to cause either blunt or penetrating trauma. Strikes with the hand or arm are called hand strikes; strikes with the feet or legs are called kicks. Most martial arts employ strikes of some kind, however, some do not, such as Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
