Weather was good for a return to training today. Richmond Park misty below en route.
Practised roundhouse / full turn kicks today using new kickshield and my student found that easier than a kickpad/paddle because he said the resistance was better. We have previously practised roundhouse / full turn by holding onto chairs so the kick is not too unfamiliar. As the student is older, I am emphasising the movement from the change in stance and the hips first and thinking about accuracy later on. We did a kind of hip swinging walk to practice the hip rotation in addition to normal warm up. There’s quite a lot of ice on the ground but not solid so it’s kicked up like tiny glass stones.
