We will build on last week’s challenge with The Soar 100 for this week (19-25 Oct) – 100 Squats with Front Kicks (Ahp Cha Ki) from your Front Stance (Chun Kul Ja Seh). You may space-out and break-up the kicks any way you wish, but the challenge is to complete 100 on each leg this week. Notice where is your weight is setting in your hips, your base foot, your knees, and in your chest. Keep your center of gravity in your abdomen.
Front Kick (Ahp Cha Ki): Every kick has three parts: the chamber, extension, and rechamber. Lift your knee toward the desired kicking target in front of you, extend the leg with a plexded foot position (pointed foot with toes pulled back), and then pull the foot back just as fast. Repeat this 100 times on each leg.
Front Stance (Chun Kul Ja Seh) is your shoulder-width from the insides of your feet. It should feel wider than you think. The length is 1.5 to 2 of your shoulder-widths from toes to toes. Your back leg is straight, and your front leg is bent with your knee directly over your ankle. This is a front stance, so all parts face to the front: Your toes, hips, chest, shoulders, and eyes.
Soar weekly challenge Sheet: Due 26 Oct.
Don’t forget to stretch at least 10 minutes everyday.
