Although it is hard to track the exact looks at each split of a split second of the front kick, you can still follow the principles which are the essence of H2H.

When you learn Front Kick, you need to learn when (meaning in what starting body positioning and range from a threatening opponent) you can use a front kick and when you should not.

You also learn how to measure the gap to be closed with your eyes, how to most efficiently close the gap, how to most efficiently generate force to devastate the pressure point you are hitting.

You also learn what part of your foot you should you use to kick and what pressure point you should kick. You learn how to maintain balance during the kick which helps to drive maximum force to the desired direction, and how to maintain balance after the kick which helps to avoid distraction as you calculate your next move. You also learn what is the desired effect on the pressure point if kicked properly. This gives you a good idea what to expect immediately after and narrow your planning options in the following second.

Remember this! You close your eyes, relax and think of nothing, and then open them and in a blink of a sight you have do determine a split second action.

You cannot plan on more than one action in a split second. Your body should be programmed in a chain reaction with thinking stops for further calculations if the threat was not resolved in the first split second.
