Playing with the Kicks
At these coaching sessions we occasionally get time to play around with some techniques and discuss how they can be improved. The turning kicks in Hwa-Rang are pretty challenging and we find that by emphasising the arms pulling in the opposite direction, and having an exaggerated retraction of the kicking foot, this really makes a difference.
This clip shows Mr Trotter playing with the kicks while Master McPhail makes some suggestions from behind the camera. This footage was also used in the turning kick analysis shown video here.
