We return to the side kick for our resident green belt. Last night was practice around a step and launch side kick. Meaning the back leg steps behind the lead leg so that the body is side facing the target and the heel of the back leg faces toward the target. The two points last night were to make sure the kicking leg rotates toes-to-the-ground ... and that the body is balanced slightly forward. The balancing is so that COG is centred between the ball of support foot and heel rather than on the blade of support foot.
