I was wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers to land a running jump 360 backkick? The only issue here is I have significant knee injuries and cant seem to land without torquing wrong. I have been training Tang Soo Do for about two and a half years and for my first red belt pretest I need to execute a running jump 360 backkick boardbreak. I was wondering if someone cold give me a few pointers on how I can land without injuring my knees again.

Frankly, if your knees are that bad, I'd avoid spinning aerials at all cost.

I know that doesn't really answer your question, that's just my opinion.

You just had to add in that your knees are bad didn't you?
Now were suppose to be physical therapist and advise you how to land on a bum knee without watching you in person. Don't you have a sensei or instructor to ask these types of technical questions?

Find an art that does not involve kicking for the sake of your knees.

MM-

What is the specific problem? Is the impact hurting you, or are you twisting the knee, etc?

Must you run? And must you jump high? I understand there is a certain flashyness when breaking but if you have bad knees like me, then you should be exempt from performing such acts.

I mean I do "jumping" kicks, but only lift myself one-two inches off the ground. Thats all you really need to twist and rotate your body. Also are you sure you need to run? That kind of defeats the purpose of spinning inthe air. The spin itself helps to reduce friction allowing smoother movement, and the spinning allows you to create motion and space for you to deliver a more powerful kick.

360 back kick was my requirement almost a year ago in April to obtain my black strip (1st Gup). At that time I still had my torn ACL so I was always careful but surprisingly I had no problems as I kept light on my feet; keeping in mind I also had to use good technique. Running, that would be a different thing all together as my break was done on the spot. Running ... I would have killed the boards as the impact would have made it far easier.

You will need to provide further info for anybody to help out further. You will also need to explain what kind of leg problems you have. Also I have to be honest, coming on to a forum is no way going to be as helpful as working with somebody one on one.

To answer everyones questions I dont have to run I do have to jump or i would literally put more force on my knees. I have LCL and ACL problems in both to answer who asked that. Although I havent had any real trouble with them since before june last year I injure them easily. Since I am testing for my third stripe on my red belt I kindof need to do this break. My master does keep a very close eye on my kick and he says even know I kick with my right leg when I land I torque on it to the right. He said it is common for 14 yearolds to over rotate which I do sometimes. Also does anyone know how long it takes to develop enough speed and strength to perform a one inch punch?

Hi, I have ALWAYS wondered about this type of thing.
I isn't really a 360 degree back kick is it??
It's a bit of a run, skip around, then possible a 180 degree back kick.

It always make me smile when people say they can do 360 degree kicking and don't.
