Comments: Red Tip Grading

Hi there. Am finding your chronicle really interesting. I too have a red tag grading in a couple of days time and am really worried about breaking - am normally okay, but they have recently given us harder boards. So, we have to perform reverse turning kick on both legs. Am okay to break 1/3 of board with left leg, but lose balance with right! Also have a physcological block with breaking new full board. Any tips please? Kind regards, Hellena.

Hi Hellena,

Reverse turning kicks with both legs - that's pretty tough! We have to do that for black tip (actually we're supposed to do a jumping reverse turning kick for full points but a well executed reverse turning kick give us passing points). We've been focussing on turning head first, then shoulders, then hips, but it's certainly not my best kick !!!!
