Written Instructions - How to do a Hopping, Skipping or Sliding Roundhouse Kick

  • To perform a hopping or skipping roundhouse kick, you start in a fighting stance.
  • Take a sideways leap towards your opponent then bring your rear foot up to your front foot.
  • As your momentum carries you forward, push off with your rear foot and fire a quick roundhouse kick with your front leg at your opponent.
