I will start post off by ending 2022 with a Huge Thank You! Thank you to my family, friends, parents, students, and people interested in Tang Soo Do that became subscribers to the Rockhold Karate YouTube Channel. The channel hit a couple of benchmarks before the end of the year.
Welcome to How to Do Stretch Kicking for Tang Soo Do. I'm Chris Rockhold at Rockhold Karate. Today I'm going to do a walkthrough of five stretch kick techniques. The first stretch kick will be front stretch kick. Second one will be back stretch kick. Third one will be side stretch kick. Fourth one will be inside-outside stretch kick. And the fifth one will be outside-inside stretch kick. With these five kicks, this should help loosen up your legs, your hip sockets, and all the muscles in the lower extremities. So let's get set up.
About a year ago I begrudgingly put Rockhold Karate on TikTok. Wait..What!?! I know, I know, I know what I said before. But as a business owner that started during a housing bust, hunkered through a recession (or two?) and survived a freaking pandemic by being able to adapt and utilize all available tools. Social media overload, yes, but a very necessary set of business tools that any business owner should be using if they want their business to grow.
Several years ago I was training in and teaching Haidong Gumdo, a Korean Sword Martial Art, independent of any organizations. A fellow Sa Bom Nim in Dang Soo Do and Haidong Gumdo out in Arizona sent a message about a Korean swordsman he just hosted and that I should host him in Texas as well. You can read about the rest of it in my other blog post - way of the sword. Anyway, read it after you read this one. ?
