Are the roundhouse kicks done on thai pads and roundhouse kicks done on the heavy bag the same technique?
Usually on the heavy bag I execute my roundhouse kicks more on a horizontal plane with a lot of hip and foot rotation. But I notice on the Thai pads the RH kicks are done more on a sharp upward angle looking more like the kyokushin style kicks in the old thread here before. I've checked out some youtube clips and it seems to be like this as well.
When I kick the thai pads I don't feel like I can get much hip or feet rotation in. Should it be like this?
Obviously I should be asking my coach but I won't see him til tomorrow night and would like to practice as much before then to get the hang of it.
