Do them slow. Real slow. Like you were the 6 million dollar man and showing off for the camera. Then hold the kick for a few seconds and slowly bring it back. You might have to lean against a wall at first, but your balance will come to you.

This works pretty well because not only are you training your stabilizer muscles to be stronger and support you better. The repetition is programming the proper mechanics of the kick into your muscle memory. The only down side comes with doing this too long or too much. Once your kicking form is better, shift to working on accuracy, speed and power of your kicks. There are other core exercises that can strengthen the muscles that help provide balance. Any personal trainer can give you several of them. If you want I can e-mail a few.

There are different techniques and exercises for different kicks, Doing them slow like someone else said is good. You could also use a wall for balance to begin with,place a chair to the side of you and practice kicking over the chair, this works your "chamber" position. Do this kick slow as well.

If you want to practice a roundhouse kick, get close to a wall kinda in a fighting stance, ie..right leg back. when you knee touches the wall extend the kick, again do this slow so not to hurt you foot,toes,knees etc...... once you get this down you could have a partner in front of you they hold a bag and put thier free hand in front of you, just like with the wall, when your knee touches thier hand fire your kick. This drill should help with accuracy,speed and power.

Hope you do well on your test!!!
