    Cheers VZ

    I am starting you method of achieving box splits.

    I am not quite a supple as I used to be and 10 years of of inactvity have taken their toll, I will get there though

    Enjoying Kickboxing for what it is and not getting too tied up in the martial arts politics

    Maybe my phrase 'jumping Kicks' is wrong and in a true and perfect world Kickboxing would or should not have jumping kicks, I just asked a question though.

    Cheers for the input though Infrazael

    Jumping side kick is the only effective one I can think of. I am sure their are others. But I don't know anyone who would actually use them in a kickboxing match.
