Koden Kan Karate Moves for Beginners : Short Side Thrust Kick in Koden Kan Martial Arts


Hi! I’m Madison Warner and I’ve been instructing
for over 10 years under Michael M. Foley system of Koden Kan Karate and today I’m going
to show you short side kick. You’re going to start in your set position, go into kiba
dachi, you want your knees very low and bent in a stance and your feet pointing straight
ahead and this time we’re going to have our guard over to the right cause our attention
is to the side. This is kick is directed to your attackers knee, okay you’re going to
bring your foot to your knee and you’re going to kick straight out knee level, you
don’t know how tall your attacker’s going to be so just do it to your own knee and bring
it back and down. So the main important part of this kick is the pivot, you have to pivot
your non-kicking foot, so you’re going to bring your knee up and you’re going to move
your heel toward your target as you kick and notice that I’m not pivoting on my heel,
if you do that you’ll fall over on your head probably unless you’re talented so
what you’re going to do instead is you’re going to rotate on the ball of your foot okay,
don’t lift your heel up I’m just doing that to show you. Okay watch…bring it up,
move your heel that way on your kick, back in and down, also you want to rotate your
hit on the kick so what you’re going to do is roll your hip over as you do this on
the kick, okay that’s short side.
