Martial Arts Fitness & Conditioning Tip - Zig Zag Kicks

The Dojo of Karate has a variety of drills and training regimens that will help develop your fitness, conditioning, strength, and flexibility. Below, Head Karate Instructor and World Champion fighter, Javier Lozano Jr takes you through a drill he uses for students to not only develop better kicking skills, but also coordination. These kicks are called 'Zig Zag Kicks'. You basically setup as many cones as you desire, usually the distance of the entire training floor, and stagger them about 3-4 feet apart, going down the floor. If you remember Drivers Ed, going around the cones, than you'll remember what we're talking about. Than you have your child / students go around each cone until they reach the end. Once all students have reached the end of the cones, have them perform the same drill, but with the opposite leg. This way they will develop both legs. Feel free to perform this drill as many time as you like, but usually 2-3 trips will wear a kid out.
