List of Core Exercises with Instructions & Videos
This list of core exercises provides you with instructions for a wide range of core workouts. These core exercises are used to help a martial artist's rotational or twisting power and this contributes to stronger kicks, punches and grappling techniques. Moreover, stronger core muscles allow martial artists to better absorb hits (i.e. withstand punches to the stomach). Martial artists use these core exercises in order to strengthen their abs, obliques and lower back. If you are looking for more traditional martial arts strength exercises (i.e. Hojo Undo), please visit the main Strength Training section.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. If you have had an injury or are in pain, please see a doctor before starting any stretching or exercise program. For additional exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Physical Fitness section.
