Came across this article that i thought was quite intersting. My understanding is that kicking started to become more prominent in karate with "sport" karate and such. However this article explains that kicking had a somewhat prominent place in the ancient art of pankration, which ws used in the original Olympic games. Itd be interesting to see what kind of kicks were used, im guessing mainly front kicks.
