Kung Fu Side Kicks : Kung Fu Tiger Tail Kick
Hi my name is Dan Schmidt from the Chinese
Martial Arts Center and today we are going to be showing you the proper way to form the
tiger tail kick. Alright from the fighting position, you want to switch down. Place the
hands on the floor; keep your knee close to your body. You don’t want your knee to go
out to the side. Be on the ball of the foot, look where you are going to be performing
the kick. Pick up the leg and kick straight out and immediately you want to get back up.
So again, so he is here, he turns down, put the hands down, pick up the leg and kick.
In fighting speed like this go ahead kick and then up. It is very important that you
maintain your balance that you can get up and go down as fast as you have to. So when
you do this kick this kick is good for kicking low limbs like the knees or the groan or the
chest or even the rib area. So if I went to the top, if I was going to rush in he can
drop down kick straight under the arm or my chest area or also if I was to move in he
can kick straight at the knee so I move in right there. Also if I was to be wildly swinging
he can kick right to the solar plex if I score myself 1, 2, ok straight in. That is the proper
way to perform the tiger tail kick.
