In German law, any assault is considered an aggravated assault "with a weapon or a dangerous tool" if the attacker uses anything but his body to attack in a way that is capable to cause serious harm. Thus, kicking somebody in the behind while wearing boots is assault, kicking him in the face is aggravated assault, and kicking him in the face with fluffy slippers is "simple" assault.
