So I'm going to demonstrate a front kick. So we're going to stay in a fighting stance. We're going to first knees up and snap out and recover. So this is how it goes. So knees up. Come back. One more time. And bring it back.

Now how do we do a front kick step by step? I'm staying in a fighting stance. First, I'm going to do is keep my knees up like this. One. Make sure your knees are pointing straight up, one. And now the next thing you do, you just kick out, two. Bring it back in and put it down forward or you can bring it back. It's your choice. So one more time. Knees up. And bring it back. One more time. And bring it back.

Now after you start getting the front kick down, I like to train with the target. So I have my partner with me. He's going to hold the target. Make sure the target is about maybe at the stomach level. I like to make sure the target is slightly up like this. Make sure it's not down, not too high. Make sure it's flat. So now I'm going to stay my distance in a fighting stance. Number one, don't forget to relax. So relax. One, two. Knees up. And give it a snap kick. One more time. And that's how we do a front kick.
