How to aim higher with the reverse kick? (TKD related)?
My reverse crescent kick can't go past my waist! What are some stretches I can do for flexibility?
same ones you already do in class.
can you touch your toes?
what is your body shape?
How old are you?
How long have you been training?

why would you want to do a reverse crescent kick? a reverse turning kick is a lot better. dip your shoulder right down trying to get it touching the floor turn the head before the leg comes round.
I can think of several reasons.

LOL, i didnt know thats what it was called.......i called it cheat spinning hook or windmill kick, cause some people cant do a spinning hook, so they just spin around and do a ....crescent.
keep stretching, do stretches at home too instead of just in class. look up expert villiage on the tube, theres a cute tang soo do MILF whose got some useful
stretching and wall kick drill vids.
practice adding height to your kick a little at a time until it's higher. Remember that high kicks are part flexibility and part leg and core strength. Make sure your hips are moving correctly.
Wait a sec.
If that is the kick then there is no way he cannot get above his waist if he can touch his toes.
The only thing I could think that he was doing wrong is trying to throw the kick too early.
or maby he is throwing a completly different kick.
I cannot belive at this point it is a streching issue.
