Kung Fu Kicking Techniques : Kung Fu Rear Leg Round Kick
Hello, I’m Sifu Mallon with the Clearwater
Kung Fu Center. This is Kung Fu for health. We’re going to be performing a moving kick.
This is called a rear leg round kick. To perform the kick breaking it down for you nice and
slow. You start from a fighting stance. Again, our knees are bent, both feet same general
direction, body nice and loose. You want to make sure when you’re kicking that you don’t
over tense your shoulders or body. You want to stay loose and fluid. The first movement
is my right foot is going to step slightly to the side, bending the knee, making sure
that my knee is right over my ankle. I’m going to generate the forest pulling my left hip
forward. As I do my left knee is going to bend. My foot comes toward my butt. Fire the
round kick off, step down and put forward. OK. Doing the kick on the opposite side for
you to see the other angle. I turn my left foot out, bend the knee. My hip and shoulder
lead the action letting my foot trail behind. I throw the kick, put the foot down and land.
Throwing the kick at normal speed.
Now since you’re using your rear leg, this makes the round kick extremely powerful and
strong. You’ll see some people throw the kick and they’ll follow through with a spinning.
This is OK if no one is in front of you, because once you turn your back you expose yourself
to the opponent. So, you want to make sure as you’re throwing the kick, you’re able to
control yourself and reset. This is how we perform rear leg round kick, Kung Fu for health.
