Sorry if this has been posted before, but I thought it deserved a mention. The page on Developing Flexibility from Trick Tutorials gives an illustrated guide to stretches for about every muscle in the body, along with discussions of various types of stretching routines, written in an easy-to-follow and downright hilarious style. Mods, you might want to consider making this a sticky, as nearly all the questions I see asked here could be answered by referring to this site.
(Be warned, that page takes a while to load; it has over 200 images.)

Very cool site. The author has LOADS of accurate and informative info and pictures. Thanks, MrMoyer!!!

He also has one bent sense of humor, and is in need of a haircut so bad it makes me laugh. Nonetheless, makes for entertaining reading.

If anyone looks at the site, bookmark it. Damn useful, no question about it.

yeah, I like TricksTutorials- it's very interesting if you do "tricking," or "neokarate" as I think it's often called. THat particular site is really nicely put together with loads of tips on nutrition and conditioning, although I prefer Brad Appleton's free E-book on the subject( http://www.cmcrossroads.com/bradapp/docs/rec/stretching/stretching.pdf/ )- if I had to choose a free resource

My first post so don't flame me to bad ok?

Although I was impressed at the thorough flexibility and stretching tips, I find myself asking why Sensei's aren't teaching these very same things in the dojo. I reference remarks posted. This is an integral part and one of the cornerstones of good martial arts instruction, although this page has a distinctive flavor that would make any TKD man salivate.

The Uki for the pics does a nice job, barring the ridiculous lack of composure while airborne, and while instigating body mechanics that lead to the aerial techniques - trying to achieve the torque, speed, and elvation. Arms, hands, and legs are out of control and if used (as shown) in contact kumite, such a practitioner would learn, in short order, the value of a tight "center" - most probably sustaining significant injury at the hands of a well trained fighter. I did get a kick out of it, nice find! My $.02
