I m a full black belt in tao kwun du and want to be able to roundhouse kick at head lvl snd I can only do at body lvl. Right now I can touch my toes but can't do a split can any martial arts people or kick boxers help me
I can kick above the head level... there is no philosophy to it mate, just stretch whenever you can. Don't limit it to a gym. Most important do it every single day.
I don't do lots of head high roundhouse kicks as they are rather exhausting. I do alternate it. Important part is that I can kick in the head when I need to.
In the gym I work mostly on technique and strength.
I stretch at home, usually when I'm watching TV. It's a great way to do it as before you notice you've done over an hour of stretching.
Just go easy mate. Don't over do it.
Well lets see...look in my created workouts there is a workout n their created only for real martial artists the first half of tht workout is warmup and flexibility training which is essential to correct kicking as well as high kicks also workout ur core more specifically...for example place ur leg in sidekick position on a top of a chair holding a dumbell in th opposite hand or n th hand of ur support leg bend at th waist till u feel tht stretch n ur oblique thn after desired reps switch sides...also double check ur technique make sure ur knee for your round house is pointed toward your target ud b surprised how little things like tht will increase height..also this drill may fill silly but it will help along with th flexibility drills and core drills add ths exercise stand on a hard wood floor or anything u can slide on in your socks position ur toes slightly out slide urself out as if ur going to do a full split till ur feet are slightly wider thn horse stance width thn using th muscle tht run down th inside of ur thigh pull u back to starting position and do sqauts with toes pointing in same direction these exercises will build strength n ur round roundhouse kicks tht will also aid in your height....ths is jus somethings tht will help but their r thousands out their whn u put all these together it will give u what u want
Lol just do it all and ull hav all ur basis covered..have u ever asked ur instructer?? :)
If you are a full black belt surely u would have perfected that kick at green belt if not red belt level?
Mmm ok mate lol black belt who cant spell taekwondo and hasnt "masterd" a high kick pmfsl I have studied various martial arts through a 25yr journey and have a 3rd degree black in ju jitsu 2nd degree in judo and black belt 1st hons in kickboxing and have a 7 yr krav maga training experience and I have never heard anyone say they are a full black belt so in short ya full of shit
Hold down for two seconds, then go forward and press the Y button. You will throw a fireball and kick anyone's ass.
When i first join taekwondo i cant kick high just like you but i practice the roundhouse kick every morning after i do the split not perfect at first but i made it i can kick high now. You can try wide leg stretch as well
Go talk to Taylor Launter :-) He is a martial artist.
