And for shouting me out, everyone who did. Oss.
Pretty good overall technique, nice speed and great accuracy. When practising this you should make sure to “stick the landing” and stay in your proper kamae as you would during a fight just to ingraine it and make it a habit.
Great feedback. Thank you
Aim is on point. The hit is solid & direct. Your balance seems fine, although there is understandably some forward movement. After the first kick your balance may be off a bit or maybe you’re just going after the thing. Either way I’m sure that you’re aware of which it is.
When I compare it to something like this:…the similarities are obvious to me.
and this: …it looks quite similar, too.
Your kick looks great to me if your goal is to lay someone down for a bit of a dirt nap. I’m not a dogmatic person though (I’m not going to say that there is a particular method that is “correct”) and I’ve never been focused on scoring points in a tourny, so take my comment for what it is: It looks like a very effective kick and I do not want to be on the receiving end of that.
My suggestion is probably kind of boring, but flexibility, strength training (core strength to support the body and to put power into the spin), and balance training will probably improve the kick more than minor adjustments. Perhaps it will also be useful to practice landing the kick while moving forward and back.
Thanks..how did you know Edson Barboza was one of my favourite fighters? :)
Every time I rewatch Renan Barao vs TJ Dillashaw I get amazed all over again. TJ is unreal man.
One of my all time favourites also. The rematch will be excellent.
