Lead Leg Foot Angle


#1

I’ve noticed for a while now that many people point their leg leg foot down during their leg kick. Personally, I have my foot parallel with the ground during my leg kick. Are there any benefits from doing it one way or another?

Some coaches teach letting the foot hang (which results in the foot pointing down) to keep it relaxed. Others teach actively pointing it down because they believe doing otherwise causes you to plant on your heel.

My opinion is that you shouldn’t worry about it. There is some merit in staying relaxed but landing on your heel doesn’t usually cause problems. Besides, landing on your heel is usually a symptom of another problem.

What is the problem that landing on the heel is a symptom of? Because when I looked at my video of my self i do kinda lend on my hell (ill try n post a vid tom.)

Mark Prior does this and look how many injuries he’s had.

It can be a symptom of a posture issue or a lack of momentum. Or both.
