    When I was training in Muay Thai I found that the only thing that helped my kicks was kicking more. Even if you were to stretch lots and become very flexible, you'd probably still not have strength enough to throw your leg up that high.

    Read Tom Kurtz's book Stretching Scientifically for info on the different types of stretching but my advice to just kick more.

    Have a look at this website:

    http://people.bath.ac.uk/masrjb/Stre...g_5.html#SEC39

    I'm not too up on warming down to be honest as I've only recently started bothering with it (it makes a big difference on how you feel the next day) but for preparing to kick I'd recommend some cardio work followed by Dynamic stretches.

    Also check this out:

    and consider buying Kurz's book.

    You're welcome. Just to let you know, all I did to find that was google search dynamic stretching. There's so much out there, you just gotta hit the search button ;)

    www.trickstutorials.com and hit the stretching button. This guy's flexibility and strength are really good. I think a lot of his stuff is from Kurz as well, but he's got a wider range of passive stretches. He's also a lot funnier, and doesn't have that whole gloomy Eastern European thang, although I think Tomasz would eat him alive in a fight. ( I actually have no evidence whatsoever to base that comment on)

    As it was said, practice kicking. Also, pay attention to your pivot and hip position when kicking.

    One thing that you may want to do is to warm up always, always always, and to stretch the hip abductors andgracilis. Otherwise, you may run the risk of a groin pull - and you... do not... want... that... ****... to happen. Check this link at exrx.net, and study the stretch exercises specific to hip abductors on the right side.

    Better yet, see my sig (or follow this link).

    Keep in mind that this information is specific to stretching and injury prevention. Whether it helps you kick better, that's another issue (which I think it's a close second after preventing injuries.)

    Happy readings.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
