    The point being is we can micro-analize any basic to death, but that won't help a guy practice it.

    So, after a certain point, the talking is done and the "doing" needs to be done.

    I weighed my boots...about 1 lb 7 oz. each. I've been working with shoes now and will ease into working kicks with the boots.

    Belts are cool and very functional because they are verticle, just like a person is verticle (hopefully. If he's not then maybe you shouldn't be kicking him).

    So the bottom has a knot tied at testicle height.

    Another knot at solar plexus height.

    We have the throat area marked in red duck tape.

    We have a round black circle where the eyes are.

    From those basic 4 targets, the rest of the targets are easy to imagine, so that you ALWAYS have a target BEFORE you kick, strike, chop, shoot, slice, whack, etc.

    LOL!! This question brought back memories from my childhood years. As a teenager, I went to school with a ton of kids who practiced hard style Karate or TKD. They always referred to their kicks as round or roundhouse kicks, while I referred to them as "wheel kicks."

    I've studied other arts in my time and have yet to find the term "wheel kick" applied to that motion.

    BTW... Do you have any idea why the kick is referred to as a wheel kick? I don't so if you or anyone else does, please share.

    According to one of the Ancient Ones: "In my understanding, in the Kenpo of my lineage, they are mutually exclusive in and of the teaching. In terminology there is no "wheel kick."

    A wheel kick is simply a front foot roundhouse kick. My Kenpo has modified it so that you don't turn your hip and cock it before firing, It comes up like a front snap kick and as you extend to the target , your hip turns...extention and power with no telegraphing

    That's how some TKD schools do it also, as well as Kara-Ho.

    When you start thinking too much about something and picking it apart too much, you become like the caterpillar who started thinking about which foot to move first and couldn't walk anymore. Some Tae Kwon Do people are taught to come off the rear leg as they move into a front balance, tuck high and fire the kick as they pivot on the supporting foot. It amounts to speed, back up mass and torque in one motion. Whether or not you impact with the ball of the foot or instep depends on the height and plane to the intended target.

    In any kick, flexing the foot to strike with ball of the foot prevents over extension and injury to the knee. I have a good bit of time and experience in Tae Kwon Do (which is, by the way, different; depending on who is teaching it) and I learned, over time, to always bring it from the ground - no matter which leg it is.

    Two final things, and I'm gone: low kicks to the legs are almost impossible to stop (can't walk, can't fight) and the front kick, snap kick, ball kick or whatever you choose to call it, is the most valuable kick you'll ever learn.

    That's how I learned it, except we do it off the back leg, too.

    Default Wheel Kicks

    Hey my steering wheel veers a little to the left, is that a steering issue or wheel alignment do you know/have you seen it before?
