Regularly practicing this splits, passive, relaxed stretching routine for fighters will rapidly enhance your kicking flexibility.

Splits stretching as shown for just 7 mins, at least 3 times per week, will make a huge difference to your kicking ability at all target heights.

Not only will you reach higher targets, like the head, that may have not been available to you before, but you’ll also kick faster and with less effort at all kicking heights. Including those you could reach before too.

This passive relaxed splits stretching routine helps fighters fast-track your kicking ability, and easily maintain flexibility once you’ve got it too.

Check out this week’s video for my splits stretching tips!
