Martial Arts Training & Fitness : Axe Kick for Martial Arts Fitness


Next, we’re going to do an axe kick. It’s
called an axe kick because it’s just like an axe. It comes down. When you raise your
leg, you need to kick it very high. Preferably up here, and you’re going to use your foot
to come down on somebody’s nose or their shoulder. If you can’t kick high it’s okay. You’ve got
to start somewhere. The more you do the kick, the more flexible you’re going to get. It’s
good to just drill it even though you can’t get it all the way up there. It’s a great
workout and it’s a great stretch. You’re going to bend your front knee, put your back foot
a little off to the side. Back straight, hands are always here, and you’re going to kick
it all the way up and come down. The emphasis is on the down. Let’s do it again. You’re
going to kick it up behind you and come down. Now, I’m going to show you from the side so
you can get a better view of the kick. You’re going to kick it up behind you and come back
down. One more time. You’re going to kick it up behind you and come back down, and then
of course, always work both sides evenly and go do the other side. Do about 10 kicks on
each side.

  1. imagen the oponent standing infront of you, try bending your leg when kicking it up so you won't hit his/her croch… :S

  2. hmmmm she doesn't explain well. There are different ways to kick an axe kick depending on the situation. Watch my axe kick tutorial vid to see.

  3. do what we call a "Stretch Kick" where you basically do an axe kick but you dont really emphasize on the "coming down" and your knees dont bend.

  4. Really bad.. 1st.. your leg cant go up like that cuz it will hit target's elbows. you need to raise your leg using the sides then on the top centralize it and bring it down quickly. the guard is a pain as well..
    but anyway, shes not a martial artist, its just another body combat girl who thinks she has learned some martial arts moves
