Refers to leg and motion of the kick.

Take your average joe standing in a front stance.

#1 front kick - No movement, kick performed with front leg.

#2 front kick - No step, kick performed with back leg, which is then put down in the back again.

#3 front kick - Rear leg steps to front leg, perform front kick with what was the front leg, step out with the kicking leg into a front stance (Essentially you move forward one stance)

#4 front kick - Front leg slides to back leg, kick performed with what was back leg, then step backwards with kicking leg (Essentially moving backwards one stance).

So, you can do a #1, #2, #3, and #4 in order and end up back in the same spot.

Interesting...

We don't number our kicks, but we have three general types for each kick. Stepping, standing, and slide-up. Stepping is kicking with the back leg and landing foward, standing is kicking with the back leg and returning it to its original position, and slide-up is moving the back leg to the front, and kicking with what was the front leg.

Yeah, you can do a #2 as what you call a stepping also.

The #1 - #4 just tells you what leg kicks and if there is a step involved. #1 and #3 are front leg, #2 and #4 are back leg. 1 and 2, no step involved, 3 and 4 step involved.

I always liked the kick numbering system used by the ATA. I also like the distinction made between reverse and spin kicks.
