Practice Your Kicks

Bruce Lee's side kick form

Bruce Lee’s side kick form

I searched for quotes from Bruce Lee and stumbled across so many that you will probably see posts in the future that contain them. For today, though, I am going to stick with one that you may be familiar with regarding kicking.

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
– Bruce Lee

Ah, yes, kicking. We have all attempted it and some of you are pretty good at it! You have heard our Integrity Martial Arts instructors say things like: “Chamber your kicks, bring the knee back, kick through your target and PIVOT.” They want us to have good form. And the photo above is why. When you have good form, your kick will look like Bruce Lee’s. In a word: Perfect.

Keep up the good work IMAers!
