# Is there any good reason not to kick people?

The Kick Attack maneuver in Arsenal p160 reads:

A staple of many martial arts, kicking has a greater range and power than punching. The attacker receives +1 Reach on Unarmed Combat Tests when using a Kick Attack.

No requirement, straight bonus, no malus.

From a mechanics point of view, is there any reason not to use a Kick Attack maneuver on all Unarmed Combat attacks?

• Never kick someone when they are down, it's not nice – GMNoob Jul 28 '14 at 17:14
• +1 for the Hot Network Questions-friendly title. I think we all ask this question at some point in our lives. – Nick Stauner Jul 28 '14 at 21:51
• One consideration is that kicking could set you up for worse glitches. – Mike Guthrie Aug 6 '14 at 17:19
