Disability Access Services at Oregon State University. Danielle: Welcome to the
Move More 10-Minute Break. I’m Danielle, and I’m going to be leading
you through some kickboxing. Alright, before we get started I’m going to show you a few
of the basic kickboxing moves. We want to stand with
our feet hip-width apart, neutral spine and shoulders pulled back. Get your guard up, and I’m
going to teach you some punches. We’re going to start with a jab. Jab comes straight out in the front. Keep the elbow soft. Right jab, left, right, left. Great, the next move we’re
going to use is a hook. Hook comes up the shoulder
and across the body as if you’re going
to punch a wall there. So across, across. It’s important here to turn
the hip with that punch. So turn, turn, turn. Nice job. Next move is a cross. We’re going to take that right
arm and take it across the body. Again, the hip turns so that
it’s facing the side wall. Left cross, right. Cross punch. Alright, the last punch is an uppercut. Uppercut, your first
turns towards your face and you punch up, out and away
as if you have an opponent there and you’re going to
get them under the jaw. Left, right, left, right. Upper cut. Great, now we’re going
to learn a couple kicks. Front kick, side kick and a back kick. The front kick comes right
to the front from the hip. We lift the knee, extend
the kick, and put it down. We want to flex that toe as we kick. Good, keep the knee soft
when we extend those kicks. Side kick, same thing to the side. Nice job, toe points to the
front of the room on that kick. And then last, a back kick. Back kick is at an angle. And we kick back, and back and back. Alright, were ready to go. [music] Alright, let’s take
