Karate, kickboxing, taekwondo and many other martial arts use side kicks as an attacking and defending technique. I show you a great way to improve your skill.
A good side kick can be like a jab in boxing, you can control the range and setup great opportunities but when you start to master it you can use it to finish fights.
All techniques are more effective with correct body and bone alignment, you will hit harder and be at a much reduced chance of injury. Pivoting the supporting leg far enough is essential with the side kick because of the strain you can put on the supporting leg.
Improve your skills every day with quality martial arts training.
