    That's a great idea -- not silly at all. I pretend I'm paddling a canoe.

    You could fix most of your problems just by taking the stiffness out of your leg. Pretend your kicking leg is horribly injured and all you can do is swing its dead weight at the target. Then when that starts to seem normal add a little tiny bit of tension back when your foot leaves the floor. Basically you want a twitch that starts your movement followed by a huge dead weight smashing through your target.

    That is a pretty clever way of thinking about it!

    I just pulled 3 posts out of here that were attempting to derail the thread. Rudy, if you have something to say about Sirc's technique, please do so. Put your random insults in the Trollshido thread.

    Pretty much all of my thai coaches referred to the hand movement while kicking as "Turning the big wheel".
