The Secret Lair
That is the strangest comic panel ever. I take jiu jitsu and I was never taught to kick someone’s leg/foot.
I’ve seen high kicks before, but what are these guys doing, auditioning for the Radio City Rockettes?
♪♫One . . . singular sensation♪♫
And kick, and one and two, and kick . . .
It never pays to kick yourself in the face.
It looks like a failed portrayal of a leg sweep and then a high kick–which makes no sense at all against one opponent. HEY, WAIT! I met a woman who was paid to kick herself in the face. She did it very gently. She was a contortionist. She was paid the money, rewarded with applause, and punished with requests for her phone number and several lewd comments. (Hey. I only salivated.)

seccond lesson, they cover the exploding heart technique
