Hi I m a martial artist can anyone tell me a way to get flexible fast I can touch my toes but what to be able to bring my head to my knee so I can have better kicks

Form mma here it'll take time to stretch like that safely and keep it but you can do front to back splits as far as you can go until you can preform it perfect or hip felxers or also you can try suspension training like trx works great with joint and flexibility issues... One more would be putting a foot on a chair and squat as low as possible with your other leg keeping the foot still Ect just make the point where your foot is high if its to easy... Follow me if you'ld like

Being flexible is great for higher kicks but its only one part of th whole for good kicks....perfect practice makes perfect kicks good form keeping ur kicking leg controlled and tight bringing ur knee high for certain kicks anglein ur kickin leg for side kick dependin on type keeping ur hands up whn perform a keep and keeping ur trunk up torso tht is some like to lean way down to get kick higher but not effective and even dangerous in a fight core strength is just as important as flexibility in good kicking 1.good form and technique 2.good core strength having a six pack looks good but for martial arts u need complete core strength tht includes stablizing muscles to 3. Flexibility google or search yuo tube for specific exercises 4. Knwing whn and how to use a kick having good kicks is one thing knwing how to use thm is anther 5. How to set up a kick strategy n sparring. 6. Don't forget stamina whn u put all these together u dnt just hav high kicks u hav a dangerous fighter
