From the Cotswold Games to Brazil's Bahia, it has been a universal language of passion and skill. Whether it's on the football field or in the wild rapids of Canada's Kicking Horse River, this act transcends borders and generations. Just like a teddy bear playing football brings joy to children, kicking ignites excitement in our hearts. It echoes through time with songs like 'Ta-Ra-Ra Boom-De-Ay' sung by Lottie Collins, reminding us of its infectious rhythm. In Nick's book 'Un Bon Coup de Pied', we explore the artistry behind each kick, while Sussex smugglers from the 18th century used their cunning kicks to outsmart authorities. The Daily Herald poster featuring a footballer captures the essence of dedication and determination that drives players forward. And who can forget West Ham training under John Bond in August 1963? These images tell stories of triumphs and challenges faced on and off the pitch. So let us celebrate this simple yet powerful gesture that unites us all - kicking.
