Cardio Kickboxing Kick Exercises Welcome to Watchmojo.com. My name is Annick Robinson from Annickarts.com. We’re here at the trade park where we’re going to show you some basic cardio kickboxing tips. So, the first thing we’re going to learn is how to drive our knee into someone’s belly. So, you're going to reach out as you’re going to grab the back of someone’s neck and you’re going to powerfully push your hip forward driving your knee using the power of your core into either their stomach or landing their chin on your knee. The second one we’re going to learn is just your basic front kick. So, from an open stance, arms and front, you’re going tom simply drive your heel into a body part in front of you into their sheen bone, into their knee, into their belly button or even into their chin. Whoa! You don’t want to fully extend the knee to make sure you don’t injure your knee or whips a leg. You want to work with control and power. The other kick we’re going to learn is a sidekick so, now you might have someone attacking you from the side of you so from your horse stance, I'm going to have you pivot your heel towards your target. You’re going to timber your leg and you’re going to extend to the side. So, the fourth kick we’re going to learn is called the donkey kick or the back kick. So, you're going to quill in and powerfully extend your leg back as you're bringing your shoulders forward. You need to hold your belly tight and press in extension. And, the Crescent kick, well what’s its purpose? It’s for kicking someone like a slap right across the face. You want to pull your leg up in a wide circle. Boom! And, your point of impact is right at the top but warm up first to make sure that you’ve got a nice range and motion and the flexibility to do it without hurting yourself.
