Adding some massive kicks to your stand up is another area that can really make your opponent off track with their game plan. This may open many areas that you can attack. We want to show you a few ways to make your kick count.
Train legs & Your Core.
Some of the very most powerful kicks in mixed martial arts (think about Mirko Cro Cop), and you ponder how they get all that power behind their kicks. Some have absolute tree trunk legs that come from the powerful exercises used to supplement kicking power.
Your core is where your rotary power comes from and is the major factor in kick power. The core and leg power together are where the transfer of energy begins right into wherever you’re connecting on your opponent. Medicine balls a great for core power. Squats and Dead lifts are essential for leg power.
For developing kicking power the heavy bag should become your new best friend. Training partners can only hold the pads for so long. Use the heavy bag whenever you can. Outside your club, kick the bag using every bit of your power you can.
Also keep in mind using the proper technique when performing these powerful kicks and turn it into a habit. Always picture the bag as an opponent.
Practice and Persistence.
Kick the bag everyday. Once a week is not enough to get better at kicking power. Often and hard you need to practice. This is the only way you will ever fight like a champion
Increase the number of kicks, then increase time you are kicking for, and increase the power along the way.
