You will learn body mechanics and principles of movement that will make your kicks faster and more powerful for less physical effort. It’s all about efficiency of movement. Once these principles are understood and incorporated into your training, they can be applied to most kicks in any martial art.
So many people kick almost correctly, but in a way that will damage their joints over time. Sometimes just a very minor adjustment in how you actually kick can not only make you more effective, but can stop you from accumulating joint damage over the years. Trust me, things you get away with when you’re young can come back and haunt you when you’re a bit older. And if you are a little bit older (and possibly have some joint pains) you really need to look very closely at what you’re doing to make sure that you can keep on training for as long as possible.
