    I think we'd need to know the context to have any chance with this.

    Re: mid-air stamp

    sorry...here's the detail"I lifted my foot, and as he got near I got him in the balls. It wasn't a kick, really. It was more like a mid-air stamp, because I got him with the sole of my shoe."can anyone help me? thanks

    Re: mid-air stamp

    Think about it - he is kicking someone. However, he is too close for it to be a full kick. The kick is shortened by the closeness to being more like stamping on the victim.

    A kick would mean that the toe of the shoe impacts on the victim; stamping on him means that the sole of the foot impacts.
