    How to improve leg flexibility?

    Newbie here, been training in kyokushin on and off for a while and was wondering if anyone had any resources or vids for stretches that help improve leg flexibility (i want to be able to kick someone in the head). any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Skip the JCVD Bloodsport chair splits. Bend over. Stretch your hamstrings. Slowly.

          Stretch machine if you want optimal results faster than natural.

            You want mobility, rather than flexibility.
            This video talks about hockey but the same ideas apply to MAs, and the definitions he gives are good.
