Kickboxing techniques and exercises for at home

Left deliveryThe most common fighting stance is known from boxing, with one foot in front. When it comes to the left foot, one speaks of a left-hand display, which is the case with right-handed people. The counterpart would be the legal display.Fighting stanceAnother fighting stance, in which the feet form almost a line from the opponent and the body is strongly turned sideways, is used in semi-contact in order to minimize the hit area on one's own body.

In the fighting stance, cover is important. This means that the shoulders are hunched and the hands are held protectively in front of the torso or face. The cover must not “fall off” in combat, especially when kicks are used.

Striking techniques with the fistsYou can roughly distinguish the blows in straight lines and hooks. Hit surfaces are the front of the boxing glove or the backhand. For a successful punching technique, the footwork is not unimportant. Most of the power of a good punch comes from the hip, not the shoulder.Kicks & kicksKicks are hit with the back of the foot, the heel, the ball of the foot, the sole or the outer edge. Especially for the execution of the high kicks, enormous body control is important, which will cost you many hours of sweaty work.Defense TechniquesA parade is a defense technique against attacks. Usually these attacks are deflected rather than bluntly blocked, as is often seen in the film. This means that you pass the fist or the leg of the opponent to the side or upwards of your own body. Firstly, this saves your strength and enables better counterattacks, as the opponent may be thrown off balance.Avoidance movementsAvoidance movements should not be confused with parades. An avoidance movement is the avoidance of an attack by moving your own body. A subgroup of avoidance movements is rolling. Here you have to go with the opponent's blow by tracing your upper body in a circular path in order to take the effect of the attack.
