I want to be remembered as the one who gave his all whenever he was on the field. – Walter Payton
Work on a fast and exciting kick combination. It’s one of the most dynamic weeks we do, because to be a great kicker, takes a lot of work and practice. Here are a few things you can do to improve your kicks.
1. Stretch – Don’t just save stretching for when you are in karate class. Do the stretches as soon as you wake up, right after school or work and once more before you go to bed. Your improvement will be dramatic!
2. Chamber – Great kicks start and finish with a great chamber. On every kick focus on puling your chamber in as tight as possible. At home practice holding your leg in a high chamber position for as long as you can.
3. Pad Rhythm Drill – When you are kicking the paddles, you should “hear” a quick slap with each kick. Try to listen to that rhythm and work hard to create a faster beat. The important part is in between kicks, get the first kick down quickly and “pop” the next kick up as fast as you can.
