    Hey everyone,

    I'm a lifelong martial artist and my background is mostly in TKD and capoeira.

    I run the website link removed and I think this could be interesting for you to see, since these are very common in martial arts (I learned half of them in TKD, capoeira and BJJ, and rest of them I innovated on my own).

    Animal walks and others movement drills are a great way to build strength, improve body awareness, coordination and conditioning.

    Our video on animal walks:

    Our channel also has lizard and monkey walk videos.

    I've left the videos in, as we may get some views and feedback on them.

    We actually call that just "horse walk" which comes from the horse stance of kung fu. It's featured in the first animal walk video.

    But related to animal walks, I did a crawling video...
