Cardio Kickboxing Exercises & Tips : How to Front Kick in Cardio Kickboxing


My name is Chemin Alldredge. I am a 2nd degree
Black Belt in Tae Kwan Do. I’m here with Expert Village and today we’ll be going over beginner
cardio kickboxing. Alright, now we are going to go ahead and move into our front kicks
and our back leg front kicks. Kicks are wonderful because for women this is one of your strongest
parts of your body, is your legs. What we’re going to do is I’m going to use Bob here as
my example. We are going to want to kick right into his stomach or into the ab part right
here. When you kick, you want to bring your up and you want to kick. Notice I am kicking
with the ball of my foot. The ball of my foot is hitting his leg. I’m going to bring my
kick back in and this is a 3 count kick. You want to always make sure your guards are up.
You’re going to do 1,2, bring it in, 3 and down. 1,2,3. 1,2,3. And then we are going
to go ahead and use our back leg and when you use your back leg you’re going to turn
your front foot and then bring it all the way back. This is going to work out your torso
area by twisting. Make sure to use your hips. Put your hips into it. You’re going to do
1. 2. 3. And then you can use your front leg. 1. 2. 3. Alright, and that is your front kick.

  1. Hmm, I belive that kicking with the heel is much better cuz then you get alot more power in the hit, and try to aim for the liver 😉

  2. I think it depends on the situation. If you have momentum or want to keep moving forward with the kick them yeah use your heel as the bone alignment is alot more then your toes. If your doing it from a solid stance though you can do it through your toes as it takes advantage of the calf muscle right upon impact. Its kinda like your when you want to do a really high jump and punch through the ground with your toes. Except the ground is the person in this case 🙂

  3. @Mirpuri420 I wouldn't go that far there fast kickers there not really awesome kickers when you give up technique and balance for speed and extension to score points thats not really awesome in my mind but no i don't think she was trying she was just kinda running through the motions….. (I hope)
