This is a drill use myself and teach at my school. It helps strengthen your hips muscles, improve balance and flexibility.
I do a similar exercise for a front heel kick and snap kick. I never even thought about applying the same method to other kicks. Thanks.
FYI - posting the same thread in 3 different sub-forums is frowned on here. Best to just pick whichever sub-forum is the best fit and post just one thread.
I'm sure it will help. The up and down motion helps build strength & elasticity in the hip muscles. Have a look at isometric stretching exercises as they compliment this type of training.Thank you for posting this. I'll give it a try.
The more I think about this... When I throw my roundhouse kick, my foot unintentionally points downward about 45 degrees on impact. I noticed it watching video of me hitting a heavy bag. I can only kick about armpit height, but the higher I kick, the more pronounced it is. Do you think this will help with that? Some of it is due to kicking too high (for me), but even when I'm kicking at a comfortable range, such as thigh height, it's still there.
I don't think there's any specific rule against it, and you wouldn't have a real way to know that, just don't go around doing it multiple times.Thanks for the sound advice. First time mistake, will look closer next time
