How to Do a Spinning Hook Kick Taekwondo Training

Spinning Hook Kick

I’m going to be showing you guys how to do a spinning hook kick. I’m going to first demonstrate. I’m going to stay in a fighting stance like this. I’m going to spin back and do a hook kick. Like that. Make sure you bring it back 360. One more time. Like that.

So step by step, I do this thing called a back turn. One. Fold your legs just like a back kick. Now make sure when you kick out this time you don’t kick straight out. I like to kind of kick out at an angle, one, and throw a right hook and bring it back. So one more time, slowly. One, two, three. One more time. One, fold your legs in. It’s important to tuck in. Kick out and hook. And bring it back.

Now I’m going to practice with my partner. He’s going to be holding the target. Again, I like to practice maybe in a face level. If you guys are beginners, maybe you can start out a little lower. That’s fine. So from here, I like to do a fake shot. So I’m going to be in fighting stance. I’m going to first demonstrate. One more time. And that’s how you do a spinning hook kick.
