The hip is the key throughout this technique. You lead the kick from the hip allowing the leg to sweep along behind it. The more you concentrate on snapping the hip, and the less on swinging the leg, the more effective the kick. 43 Outside range low-kick arsenal Rear thigh kick 1 2 3 4 5 6 44 Chapter 3 Rear thigh kick / another view 1 2 3 4 5 6 45 Outside range low-kick arsenal Rear thigh kick / solo view 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 46 Chapter 3 Rear kick ankle 1 2 3 4 5 Here we have the exact same kick executed in an identical manner, but we change the target.
As soon as the lead foot plants — launch the kick. We don’t jump this kick to the ankle as the telegraphing of a hurtling body has a tendency to prompt a moved foot response. This usually still leaves the thigh as a target, but no need to chance the ankle from this outside range. 49 Outside range low-kick arsenal Switch kick thigh 1 2 3 4 5 6 50 Chapter 3 7 8 A switch kick is the mirror image of the rear kick thrown of f the lead leg.

Pay attention to negative speed (return speed). A quick return to position is what allows shifting into combinations and/or faster responses in defense work. Working only on striking speed with little attention paid to return speed is a common mis take. When throwing this kick, think of the leg as a club or tree limb that is being swung at your target. Do not hinge the leg and attempt to add more “snap” with a burst from the quadriceps upon contact. If it helps, think of the leg as one fused piece of bone with a slight bend in the knee so you aren’t throwing stif flegged.
