View Full Version : Flexibility For High Kicks Tutorial

I seen some of Zaichik's videos on here, but not this one.

Very good explanation of how to stretch for high side kick.

As soon as I have time I'll get on this.

That video is old. Here is a more recent one.

Thanks man, I did not see that one. That one is more about standing tall when kicking, not sure if it's only about high kicks. I seen people drop away from their own kick even with low kicks. That training method would work for all kind of kicks.

It never hurts to do those exercise to strengthen the core. Although if you throw a kick to the leg, you won't go back as much as you would if you threw a kick to the head. I think core strength becomes more important when the kick goes higher. I am not sure if Paul meant that as well, I am assuming he did.

Mr. Zaichik explains everything very well. I am familiar with his stuff, because both of my instructors use his methods. Still, it's great to see him explain everything himself. Important points can get lost in translation.

lol I thought that too. One of the first drills I learned was to kick over the back of the chair to keep a chamber of the kick. Paul's moves go beyond that.

We used to have a rope hang high and kick over that. Why not hold an arm out? What do I know.
