Thanks, i already practice and warm-up kicks a lot, and i found slow kicking really helped my side kicks. Front kicks i was doing more "light" kicking for warm-up--maybe 3/4 speed, but no power and a slight hold at the end--i'll try slow too.

I think warming up slow might help set good mechanics because again, you have to engage your core to stay balanced. Though i'm sure someone will say it's all wrong!

Oh, and apologies to the OP--did you get anything out of us hijacking your thread?

Hello Gojuboy13:

Could be the IT band, glutius medius, glutius minimus, could easily be TFL Tansor Fascia Latae <sp.?> or some combination. As long as no pain... thats good.

Of the bunch I like the Ilio-Tibeal band as your potential culprit.

Stand full weight bearing on the leg that's clicking
take the other leg and cross it in front of the "noisy" leg
once crossed in front of make light-solid contact w/floor,

lean completely sideways towards "clicky side" as if
entire front of body was against unbreakable plane of glass

Sustain stretch in that direction and then reverse direction
Reverse entire stretch from opposite leg/side. Feel anything???

I used to get a similar sensation just when doing front kicks, but in the last few months it's started happening with crescent kicks as well, and more recently even with leg raises and situps. Basically anything that involves bringing my right knee towards my chest (or my chest towards my knee like with the situps) will make it feel like something has moved out of place in the front of my hip joint, and sometimes I have to shake my leg out to make it "click" and go back to normal. Ocassionally this click is loud enough for everyone in the room to hear.

Initially I assumed the problem was caused by tight muscles in my hip, but yesterday a biology student suggested I may have torn the cartilage in my hip joint. I've looked around online and the symptoms of a hip labrum tear seem to describe exactly what has happened to my hip, especially on this page where it mentions the "catching" sensation:

I'm planning to go to my doctor asap and get this checked out.
