Black Belt Kicking Drills - Amended


I originally developed these Black Belt kicking drills to enhance Black Belt potential. I’m adding some other drills, and addition descriptions to make them more comprehensible. Most often the principle is to destroy the attacker’s base. I am not focusing on hands potentials in these drills but the use of the lower body.

For each line of attack the outside is the exterior line of defense and inside is the interior line of defense.


Exterior line of defense

Attacker Right Foot forward Right Punch

1. Right foot steps forward Hooking around attacker’s right heel.

2. Right front kick into their left supporting leg


Interior line of defense

Attacker Right Foot forward Right Punch

1. Right foot steps forward Hooking around attackers right heel.

2. Right swing kicking the direction attacker is stepping

(See how good their splits are as you boost their leg to he sky.)
