Energy in Kicks

Energy in Kicks

Postby Audi » Sun Mar 18, 2001 1:05 am

When we straighten the leg to stand up for a kick, should any of the momentum be used in the energy of the kick? When I have seen instructors perform kicks quickly, it seems as if the kick rises from the ground. However, when the form is performed slowly, it looks as if the kick is not initiated until the leg fully straightens.

Also, is there any waist energy used in the heel kicks?
