Balance and Kicks (diary entry)

kick to pads13.10.21

Wednesday night was just my junior MMA client who wanted to focus on better kicking development. We trained front and rear teeps and round kicks. I was also keen to develop better balance and stability all round. This included correct foot positioning to enable faster and more energy saving pivots, straighter postures and some injury prevention. Kicks were first performed in placement drills, looking at rhythm and balance as well as hand placement. Then I put them on the belly and Thai pads. Finally, we put them into build-up combinations chaining them onto punchng combinations before linking kicks together. We finished with an intensive technique/speed/power round and some static stretching.
