While there is some difference in the style, it really depends upon the country the martial art is from.

If you mean Okinawa Karate: * Front Kick - Mai Geri * Roundhouse Kick - Mai Washi Geri * Side Kick - Yoko Geri * Back or Mule Kick - Ushiro Geri * Stomp Kick - Fumakomi Some schools don't even teach all the kicks.
