Story about this misheard lyric by: Jay Johnson

He's talking about the people doing the kung foo fighting. Referring to them as cats as it was a popular term for cool guys at the time. Kicks is just too obviously descriptive. It's a song not a recipe.

Comments:
The #1 hit from December 1974, "Kung Fu Fighting" started a huge mini-craze, that would be seen during much of 1975, of taking martial arts moves onto the Disco dance floor. And it was started by Jamiacan born Carl Douglas (born 1942) and his song "Kung Fu Fighting". Carl Douglas currently lives in Germany and runs a publishing company.
