Hopping or Skipping Side Kick - Martial Arts Kicking Technique
This section teaches you how to do a martial arts hopping or skipping side kick. This kick is also known as the step behind side kick, sliding side kick, etc.
A hopping or skipping side kick is a method used to quickly close the distance with an opponent and land a powerful kick. This kick is usually used for breaking demonstrations or in the movies as it is less effective in sparring and/or self-defense situations (as an opponent has more time to dodge an attack). In order to master the hopping or skipping side kick, a student needs to have learned the basic side kick.
