    Hook kicks aren't exactly the easiest kind - but we happen to have a nice video to help you get the hang of them.



    As usual, don't hesitate to give the challenge a go. Join in and tag your friends!

    ... and if you'd like to know more about our Sunday challenges, see our FAQ.

    Good luck!

      Wanted to mention on hook kicks that I didn't understand them from the video for a while because I didn't realize you're striking with your heel. I did a lot of normal turning kicks instead of hook kicks but managed to sort out my misunderstanding. Context: I started fighter's codex without any formal training

      It could help on kick video descriptions to briefly mention "imagine striking the bag or opponent with your heel/toe/bottom of foot."

      Better get kicking to work on my new form!

            Aww, it would've been nice to get feedback on this, but I most likely won't have the opportunity to record it.

              Mianevem, even though no entries are allowed before next Sunday, it's perfectly fine to post later!

                    Well, it looks like I'll skip this one, but I hope there will be other combat challenges later.

                      I managed to do 32 kicks shoulder-level height.
                      The most difficult thing was to change sides quickly!
                      Sorry, but I feel awkward doing videos...
                      See you next challenge!

                        I gave it a shot, counted 27 kicks afterwards.

                            Nice going, guys!

                            Here is my own entry:



                            Trying to cram as many kicks as possible within sixty seconds while changing stance all the time means my technique suffered a bit, I'm afraid... Lots of flailing my arms around to keep balance. But I'm quite sure there are a few good kicks in there somewhere.

                              unfortunately I couldn't get around to a video submission, this time round, it wasn't pretty,
                              but managed to scrape together 31
