Side-Kick

Move Targets: Glutes


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Begin with the feet together, putting most of your weight into one side. Since your opponent is on the side of you, you need to protect your face by crossing the opposite arm to your cheek and using your other arm as balance.side-kick

Step 2: Lift the kicking leg off the ground with a completely bent knee. For power, bring the knee up to hip-height and crunch it toward the body, foot flexed.

Step 3: Use that momentum and push the leg out to full extension. Lean deeply to the opposite side and keep your grounded leg slightly bent for good support. Reel the leg back in by first sending the heel to your butt, then tapping the foot on the ground next to the other foot and repeat.
