What is your safe kicking height, to avoid hip injuries - Part 2

The kicking height can be calculated or found visually.
While many biomechanical concepts are best calculated, the safe height of a kick is best determined visually.
The kick’s range of motion is determined by the supporting leg. The range of motion of the kicking leg is about 45 degrees in most people and is restricted anatomically.
Calculating the Height
  • To calculate the supporting leg height, lay down on the floor and lift the top leg up with a turn out. Measure that angle. (Completely vertical leg is 90 degrees).
  • Next add that value to 45 degrees.
The total number is the passive range of motion for the kick.
There are several issues with measuring passive range of motion and transferring it to the kick.
  • If the pelvis tilts laterally, less than 45 degrees will remain. In that case the kicking leg will have less than 45 degrees to add to the ROM of the standing leg (which is measured with a turnout). To get proper calculations one must be very careful, to keep the pelvis stabilized.
  • Even if the passive angle is calculated correctly, active flexibility is not equal to passive flexibility.
  • The final angle must be converted to the kicking height. While this is not a problem with basic calculations one has to take into the account leg length, which differentiates from individual to individual.
Visual safe height is measured by three tests.
  • Slowly Extending the Kick.
  • Slowly Raising the Kicking leg
  • Holding the Extended Kick
If you can do at least 2 of those tests to a specific height, you can safely kick to that height.
Kicking above that height (even if possible with momentum), comes with loss of control over joint position. Doing so increases the risk of injury.

Do You Want FAST Mastery of Your KICKS?

3-4 years of Training, You can Master in 5-6 Months!

Or... Do you Prefer the Standard Method..?

“kick and kick and kick some more....

and hope that it will work somehow, eventually...

If you are open to a new method... Read On!

My fellow martial artist,
Let me quickly tell you what
ElasticSteel Kicking Method can do for you,
AND how it does it!

So first here is what this method of kick training is known for.
  • Teaches you to kick straight up in the air
  • Effortless kicks are developed
  • Quickly builds up unstoppable kicking power
  • Trains your kick to with speed that it is hard to see or block
I know you want to kick with speed, power and height. Every Kicker Does.... What have you been doing so far to achieve it?

PLEASE don’t tell me “just kicking” and hoping something will click somewhere and it will work one day.

Here is the Eye Opening Truth:

If you want SPEED,

You MUST train a sequence that develops SPEED!


you MUST train a progression that develops KICKING HEIGHT, etc, etc.

The worst thing you can do is.... “just keep kicking"

I know people who have been “just kicking” for 2 years,

and I also those with 30 years of "just kicking" experience under their belt.

NEITHER have developed any top-level qualities in their kicks.

(By quality I mean; speed, power, height, focus, control, etc)

However, after I showed them how to train for a specific quality of a kick, it took them just weeks.

YOU READ THAT RIGHT, just weeks to improve their kicks like they could not in years.

Extremely Fast Progress- One Quality At a Time

One Quality at a time, not all qualities all together.

Let me be clear from the start:

This means that I can NOT get you speed, focus, power, control, endurance, height, etc., all of them in the same few weeks.

I can only guarantee of those qualities ONE AT A TIME.

You master, them in a sequence.

So, if you are hoping that you will master all in 10-20 days.
Please go on and keep “just kicking” my program is not for you.
My Program STANDS BEHIND What it
And I Don't Want to Hear People Who DID NOT Understand How it Works,

Complain That They Did Not Achieve Their Results Fast Enough.

So IF You Understand That Each Quality Must be Developed One At a Time,

Only Then It Can Be Mastered Quickly Then Please Read On....

Now briefly, I will tell you who I am and what I do.

(If you already are familiar with ElasticSteel and me, Paul Zaichik, skip this part)

I See Martial Arts Training From A Different Point of View.

The same as a doctor sees a human body differently than a lay person.

Or a mechanic sees a car differently than a regular driver.

For this reason, I see the speed development of the kicks differently from height development, and power mastery progression completely different than focus training and so on.

Each quality of the kick has a different unique, short training path.

After you train with my method, you will begin to look at kick training with a completely different outlook at as well.
I am a life long martial artist.

(34 years in martial arts, in 2018).

My education is in Kinesiology.

I have been studying,
researching and teaching kinesiology for 21 years.
As you can imagine, my main areas of study ware and still are:

  • Biomechanics
  • Motor Learning
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Human Movement

I have always applied much of my research to Martial Arts.

That is why, when I look at the mastery of kicking techniques,
a completely different point of view is seem in my mind, compared to most people.

30 years of Martial Arts experience and indepth knowledge of the human body, now offered to YOU in 20 chapters.

So, when you get this Kick combo, you will get the following:
Very Short and to the point and very easy to understand and follow routines for basic kicks.
The quality improvement is focused on the following kicks:
  • Front Kick,
  • Roundhouse Kick,
  • Side Kick,
  • Hook Kick,
  • Axe Kick.
Each routine designed for quick mastery of a kick and a chosen quality.
  • speed or a roundhouse kick
  • power of a front kick
  • height of a side kick
And Many Many More Of course.

  • Especially selected exercises that have been carefully chosen from many already very effective and rare exercises, to achieve the fastest results. (Again, each one for a specific quality or a specific kick)

  • Routines to master advanced kicks as well. (Flying side kick, Scorpion Kick, Flying Side Kick, Flying Two Direction Scissors kick).
But if you don’t know anything about me, you probably find all this too good to be true.
If I have trained the same way for years, without any results, I would definitely be

of some “new method” I just discovered.
Can this really help me?
I hope you are skeptical.

The more skeptical you are the more you will enjoy the results.
And more likely you will tell your friends about them.

That’s how word of the mouth works.

From people who are pleasantly surprised by
the results…
