We do some really solid saber work, but some of our empty hand technique is lacking. One aspect of that is kicking and that will be the focus tonight. Since we are not throwing full power kicks and really hitting our target, the audience dose not have a reference for how “good” a kick is. One half of that is (as the target) selling the impact. We do that regularly. The other half is selling the kick through technique. That we do not often cover. 

This class will cover some basic kicks and how to execute them without hurting yourself. The goal, aside from safety, will be to demonstrate how to make your kicks look technical, specific, and purposeful. Not like just an awkward limb thrown out for good measure.

NO JEANS should be worn to this class. It is imperative that your movement is not restricted when trying to move your legs. I do not care if your regular wear trousers have “enough give” for you. They might but it is not enough. 

Shorts, workout pants, or loose sweats are fine. Tight, but stretchy leggins or the like are fine too. If you can dance in it then it is good enough. By dance I mean ballet, not two step. Jeans, khakis, or slacks will not be allowed.

Attendance implies participation. Participation implies respect.
