Kick paddles are almost exclusive to Taekwondo, but many other styles could benefit and improve their kicking techniques by using them. These are not for developing power but for working on accuracy and precision. Depending on the drills you can also work on, speed, dynamic flexibility and Kicking combinations. With two in hand a partner can always have 4 strikes points available and moving them around means dynamic target practice. Repeated training really works on building strength and coordination of hip joint, which is essential in Taekwondo. Almost unlimited kicking combinations can be practiced once two Taekwondo Kick Paddles are used, for this balance is key and is something that will come with time.
Made in the classic Kick Paddle shape, this single Taekwondo kick paddle is made from soft foam which is tough enough to withstand thousands of kicks before there is any sign of degradation. Lesser quality foam can degrade much quicker. And covered in a crosshatch design PU vinyl which again is super durable and designed to be kicked thousands and thousands of times. This Taekwondo kick paddle is tough and durable and is a perfect addition to your kciking training.
“People regularly ask what the difference is between the single kick paddle and the double. In terms of training, not much. The double makes a nice slapping sound when you hit them. Apart from that nothing.”
