Perfecting my Side Kick...

It's been a minute since I've taken kick boxing. Finally, I was able to free up some time for it last night. It was my first session with a female instructor. Her name is Cynthia and boy does she kick high! Thankfully, during our last freestyle drill she walked around class to observe our form and answer any questions we may have. When she finally got to me, I asked her how to do an effective right kick. For some reason, I knew I was doing something wrong...I felt it. She was so cool and demonstrated to me step by step. I then realized what I was doing wrong. Here were her tips. #1: Start off with a side fighting stance w/left leg in front of the right leg, #2: Use your arms to gain more momentum, #3: Make sure to rotate your torso to the left as your rear leg comes forward, #4: Raise and point your knee to the target before fully extending your leg. After a few attempts, I finally got the hang of it and it felt so much better. YAY! Thanks Cynthia! You'll definitely see more of me on Wednesdays.
