Jok Ki (Kicking Techniques) are the bread and butter of Korean Martial Arts. In the world of karate, Tang Soo Do’s differences are most apparent in kicking – dynamic, high, and aerial. A flying side klick is on our association flag and seal! This week, I want you to concentrate on the combination and consecutive kicking while “Crossing the T.” Combination kicking involves both legs while consecutive kicking is multiple kicks with the same leg. “Crossing the T” is nothing more than changing the angle of attack to gain the advantage while placing your opponent at a disadvantage. In other words, move around your opponent to create an opening to strike.
Your training workout should include a good warmup with dynamic stretching. Save the long slow stretches until you’re finished. Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day, and don’t forget to practice your Kicking One-Steps (Il Soo Sik Jok Ki Dae Ryun).
