karate flexibiltyThis week in every martial arts training class we will be helping you to become a faster and higher kicker by helping you to improve your flexibility.

Flexibility is increased through stretching. We stretch to avoid injuries and for better performance. The more you stretch the faster you will become because a loose muscle moves faster than a tight muscle.

Here are a few things you can do to become more flexible in your martial arts training :

1. Routine : The only way to improve your flexibility is to stretch everyday. Do a light stretch, touch your toes, straddle and side splits as far as your feel comfortable. Do this as soon as you get up in the morning. This will make stretching easier the rest of the day. Then stretch a little more right before lunch. Do a full stretch right before karate class, then a quick stretch before bed. Keep up this routine and you will be kicking over your head in no time.

2. TV Drill : If you are watching TV, sit in a straddle for the entire show. Every few minutes try to push your legs out a little further. This type of static stretching is a painless way to improve your flexibility.

3. Heat It Up !!! : Turn off the air, or go outside, The best way to get in shape and get muscles loose it to do martial arts training in the heat. Cold tightens muscles and slows your progress. Just be sure to drink enough water.
