Does anyone know a good way to learn the 2 directional kick?


ie, is it best to try and learn 1 leg at  a time and then try putting them together?


Or just to run and go for it?!


I'm finding it difficult to master as i am also struggling to get the height on my jump (oh and it's a lie about Red Bull giving you wings! I've tried it!)


 


Many thanks,


M-

The most successful method for me was to get two pads held in the right position and then attempt to kick them, by attempting it a few times i found i quickly managed to rejudge the distance and start to hit both the pads. I also found filming it and watching it back allowed me to see where it didn't look correct and solve the issue. I have taken to filming all the stuff i'm not great at and it has helped loads.

Hope this helps
Chris

Hi ya,

Master Galarraga demonstrated how to practise that technique, but you need a partner to help with the jump. Takes away the pressure of landing and allows you to concentrate on the kick

it is easy to add to things already invented.

Hi.

Yeah filming it sounds like a goodidea then you can see where you're going wrong. Might try that one-thanks!
