Taekwondo Plyometric Training for Explosive Power
To develop explosive power for martial arts, you should consider doing plyometric exercises. These exercises develop the ability to "explode" from a static position (think of a horse exploding out of the gate). This combination of speed and power is an important skill to learn in order to excel at Taekwondo sparring and/or self-defense. These martial arts plyometric exercises will also help you to develop more powerful kicks and punches. However, be aware that if plyometric exercises are performed incorrectly or are performed without an adequate level of basic physical conditioning (i.e. being out of shape), they can increase the risk of potential injuries (i.e. to your knees). Consult with your doctor and martial arts instructor before starting these exercises. Not recommended for people with existing medical issues.
