Yoga: High Kick Dynamic Flow


Yoga High Kick Dynamic Flow

This yoga flow routine, High Kick Dynamic Flow, targets improving the height of a round house kick.


The round house kick is one of the "bread and butter" kicks when it comes to battle. Warriors can execute low round house kicks aiming for shins, knees or quads, mid round house kicks aiming for the hips and rib cage, or can execute high round house kicks aiming for the head. Although high kicks look impressive and can cause significant damage to the head, it would not be possible if there is a lack of flexibility and mobility in the legs and hips. This yoga flow routine, High Kick Dynamic Flow can help warriors improve the flexibility and mobility in the hips and legs to execute higher round house kicks.
