please feel free to leave a comment down below so I can help you out
leave a comment please I’ve been looking pretty dry lately before attempting this
move I recommend you have a swing 180 round you can click right there for a
swing 180 round tutorial basically all this move is is pop 180 hook with that
front leg starting up and since it’s a swing move we’re going to be adding a
180 turn into it so when you begin this move you’re going to start in the backside stance looking forward at your target you’re gonna step out with your
front leg and turn 180 degrees to a frontside stance and as you do this your
arms and your leg are gonna go back slightly into like a little baby eagle
position swing your arms and legs through turn and look over your shoulder
switch your legs kick and land in a backside stance or you can let your leg just
follow all the way around back to the frontside okay so progressions for this
move is pretty dope number one the first thing you’re gonna do is a hook kick
second you’re going to do a pop 180 hook kick also have a tutorial on that for
you there’s a wasp on my camera get off my camera third you’re gonna try a pop
180 hook with that front leg already starting up fourth you’re going to do the
same thing but you’re gonna bring that leg back and try to do it from here and
from there you basically have your tsunami kick just add the 180 turn into the
swing and have your tsunami kick if your kicking and kicking really isn’t your
thing start off just trying to practice it low and then as you get better and
you start stretching more and getting stronger in your legs
you can start to make that kick look higher and higher key things to focus on
it number one make sure you turn your hips a little bit right before you jump
number two try to look for your target before you actually throw your hook kick
you don’t want to do one of these we’ve all done that learning and number three make
sure you guys are keeping your toes pointed let’s check those out one more
time so that’s pretty much it for this
