All leg kicks are NOT thrown equally.
I had recently shared a video of one of my fighters, Edir “Belico” Terry, snapping his opponent’s leg with a vicious leg kick. This wasn’t an ordinary leg kick. I was something my brother Marcos and John Mangual had worked on with Edir for this fight.
Some people call this a low leg kick, I call it the calf kick. If you have never felt this kick before, it is brutal. Usually you don’t get your leg broken, but your calf muscle will cramp up very quickly (within 1-2 kicks) and your mobility will be severely impaired. Without being able to use your calf, you lose the spring to your step and become flat footed.
Especially for a south paw, the inside calf kick is even more brutal. In this video, Edir goes over where to hit and what to hit with to get the best result from this calf kick.
To become the best, we must continuously test ourselves. We measure our performance, evaluate our faults, accept criticism and then work on improving ourselves before starting all over again.
I live by this principle, and I need your help! I wish to be the best instructor I can be, but I need feedback from you to know if I am doing a good job.
