Hello MA's

I'm practising TKD for about 1 year now (a little more)
When I'm practising on a heave bag or just spar I don't feel hip pain.
But when I'm doing a side kick to the head or upper torso, most of the time I feel pain in my hips when I only hit air.

Can anyone explain this to my or knows a way to exercise without having this pain?

Please don't say, "don't shadow kick", this is the last option I wan't to consider.

Thanks a ton in advance.

I've been shadow kicking at home for like 2 months.

I'm all MT, but recently I've been exploring into Shotokan/TKD/Kyokushin kicking techniques. The pain is there as well, but I don't mind. I kinda like it. . It goes over the next morning.

Now the question is, what's happening and why is it happening? I feel it's hurting inside the thighs.

hehe.. it's not the muscule pain I do like! It's a pain wich isn't normal muscule pain, but it feels more like a hip problem.

I visited a doctor some time ago and they made xray's. There wasn't anything to see at those pictures

Maybe I need to stretch even more.. I don't know.

Are your feet in the right position?

I had a training partner who complained about a pain when he kicked and by turning his foot a little to the side it went away.

Just a suggestion.

if you are going to kick high with a side kick and arent super flexible, your gonna have to twist your hips a bit rather than keeping it in the same line as the side kick...thats how im taught,.

I have the idea itīs because I donīt hit something.

Maybe to much force on the joints wich won't be adapted by a punch bag?

I think that's the most likely problem. Other than that, try not to lock your leg out and make sure you have correct body alignment. Your body should be in a straight line behind the kick, don't kick at an angle. Otherwise, demonstrate the technique in front of your instructor, and see if he can give you pointers on what's going wrong.

Try not to put so much power in it. Everyone wants to train power constantly.Power is all well and good but it isnt always neccessary over form when training. Whats happenening to you is that you are over extending the leg muscles and tendons. Since the impact of the bag or opponent isnt there to stop the foot then the leg keeps going. remember physics class? An object in motion tends to stay in motion.... so practice a little slower with just a little less power.

well...i used 2 have that as well..but i was told it was from poor technique, i got some advice on how 2 change that, if u are kicking with ur right leg...try 2 get ur right shoulder 2 be in line with ur leg on the ground...that's the best ican explain it...but if u do it correctly..it works wonders on speed and power without the pain
hope that helps u man
