Begin in a side on stance, feet two shoulder widths apart, with the kicking leg back. Feet should be parallel, pointing slightly to the side. Keep the guard up throughout.
Swing the rear leg forward so that the knee comes up coiled as you prepare to spring the leg forward. Bring the knee higher so that it touches and almost bounces off the chest for additional power.
Set the kicking foot down landing forwards as you complete the kick. From here you can either perform additional moves, or return to the starting position.
