From @imjohanjulianlee – Many times when teaching a new student “how to kick”, the beginners usually throws a kick as hard as possible with a disregard on their stance, balance & hips.
Once you point that no punch / kick is effective without a proper stance & rotation, you help the learner realise a different dimension to their problem. A problem they were not aware of.
How many times are we throwing a hard kick without a coach? That we are “working hard” but not “working smart”?
