water kick training
by kevin kreckel
first start with a good warm up
then stretch out good
enter a pool or a stream and go in to neck level.
do 20 0r 30 of each kick per set,
do 10 to 12 sets front side round kick
then add the jump kicks spin kicks etc...
water provides just enough resistance that it will strengthen and improve your technique
also speed and balance!
also trying to break the surface with jumping kick will improve your jumping ability as the water will try to hold you down!Deb's reply
Sounds like fun!
I've never tried my taekwondo kicks in the water but I'm going to give it a go (once it warms up it's winter down here in Australia at the moment brrrr!)
