Power Generation in Roundhouse Kick Videos
Long range roundhouse kick
It was a little late at night to be doing this - so please excuse the tiredness that you can see as I introduce the technique. Essentially this is a long range roundhouse kick striking the target with speeed generated at full extension. Note that the hands are generally held high for coverage.
Short range roundhouse kick
You don't get to see my beer fridge in this shot. The short range roundhouse kick is done using body compression (not contraction), which allows the kick to generate a sufficient power in a short distance. But it is not a kick to be trifled with. THe short range kick is an example of a very effective traditional combative tool.
