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


My name is Chemin Alldredge. I’m 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’re going to go ahead and work on our side kicks. This
is the second kick out of our 3 kicks. First we learned the front kick, now the side kick.
What we are going to do is we are going to be hitting the Bob right here in the stomach
area again. We are going to be hitting with the heel of your foot. Your heel is a very
powerful part of your body, so you want to make sure you execute that heel into it. This
a 4 count kick. It’s going to be 1,2,3,4 and then up. 1,2,3,4. Guard’s always up. We want
to make sure that our other foot is pivot. We want to pivot the opposite way of our opponent
so we want to make sure that that bottom foot is pivot to the opposite way of our Bob. We
want to bring our foot up again 1,2,3,4. Good. You want to make sure that side kick tucked
right in. This is going to work out your side and torso area. You might feel a little bit
of a pinch. You can do 10 on each side. Alright. And then now we are going to put a little
bit more power into this kick so if your opponent is a little bit farther away, you’re going
to take a step, take a step behind, bring that kick up and kick. In. Make sure you want
to go ahead and keep your guards up. Now we’re going to put power to it. So you’re going
to step, and bring it back in. Alright and we’ll do one more. And bring it back in. And
that is your side kick.
