The strongest possible strike that a person can deliver is a dropping stomp with their body weight directly in line behind it. A rearward side kick, sometimes called a back kick or mule kick is essentially the same. It is a flying one leg stomp with the kicker is leaned over with his torso lined up with the heel of the foot. You would be essentially have your back turned 3/4 toward the target, looking over your right shoulder, skip with the left foot and stomp with the right heel while your entire body is in motion. This kick hits like a battering ram when delivered by a trained practitioner and can easily generate in excess of a thousand foot pounds of force which is concentrated on a very small hard striking surface of the heel. Nobody's spine can withstand that, especially if they are relaxed and don't see it coming. The reason that the man who kicked Arnold failed to hurt him is that his feet made contact before he extended so it just turned out to be a hard shove.

    Lot of luck involved here. Lucky the dude didn't have a knife, or a brick or a gun.

    Major fail.

    Looks like someone grabbed his arm and pulled him away once at ~30sec and he came back later for his kick...
