Cheryl Cullina: Hi, I'm Cheryl Cullina and I'm a cardio kickbox instructor. This video is about basic cardio kickbox techniques and I would like to show you one of our basic kicks, and it's called the back kick. We will start the back kick in guard position, with one knee forward as you lower the chest, kind of like a cannonball, as though you were going to dive into a pool. We're going to take a look over the back shoulder to the target, extend the leg without locking the knee. The toe and knee push towards the floor, bring the knee back in reset. That's it from the front stance. Let me take this to the side so you can see how it works here. We draw in, take a look at the target, you want to see who you're going to knock down with this powerful kick. Extend the leg without locking the knee, toe and knee pushed towards the floor; draw it in, stand up tall, that's our back kick. Let's move on.
