What is your SOP for kicking? I.e. donkey kick (mule kick or back kick), team in before breacher. Front kicker, breacher in first?

Front kicking, while it looks bad ass, forces you to confront a potential threat immediately upon breach. This can be problematic as the breacher most likely is not on his gun and working the angles. At least a donkey kick allows the breacher to get on his gun and work his doorway procedures in a safer manner out of the threshold.

I'm in agreement with Viking. The donkey kick also allows you to have partial protection with the doorframe. Viking, allow me to echo Ryan in welcoming you to the Forums. :)
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.

If you don't have a doorknocker you should be prepared to kick as a pair, like the blacksmiths do, you don't want to step in out of breath, and depending on the hardware and door/frame material it can take some good blows.

Another good tip is to pry to find out where the locks and other obstacles are. This is best done as recon before you knock on the door, as we call a forceful entry here. Unless you can look through doors and wall you never really know what you're up against.
