- Lift your top leg a few inches. Flex your foot and send energy out through the heel.
- With your foot flexed, swing the top leg to the front. At the full length of your kick, do a small pulse kick.
There will be a slight adjustment of the pelvis as you move your leg forward, but there should be no real rocking of the pelvis or the shoulders
. The intent is to develop core strength
so that you can freely move the leg in the hip socket, independent of the rest of the body.
