Six-Kick-Attack Combo

This is a BoxAerobics pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 10350)

I add this combination to the end of other jab/kick combinations when all particpants are pumped and ready to kick some carbs at a higher intensity. I build this 6 kick attack combination of knee smashes, roundhouses, side kicks, reverse pivot side kicks, front kicks and hitch kicks starting from a neutral boxing stance which is going to move laterallly:

Cueing the combination (starting with right knee):
Knee, knee, knee-step side kick, round, reverse, right kick, hitch, "other direction!" knee, knee, knee-step side kick, round, reverse, left kick, hitch.

Teaching the combination:
I build this combination with drills as follows:

Step 1 is repeated 4 times to the right then step 6 - 4 times to the left, then 2 and 2 each direction, then 1 and 1 each direction.

Steps 2/7 and 3/8 are combined: Off a left lead stance and starting with the right leg - a ryhthym of round house, hold, reverse kick, hold (repeating at least 4 times then switching to a right lead for drilling the left leg roundhouse - right leg reverse pivot side kick).

Steps 4/9 and 5/10 are also combined (**after teaching hitch kicks see below). A right front kick followed by bringing the left knee up to complete a right hitch kick, repeated until the majority have it down.

In a pyramid teaching fashion, steps 2 and 3 are added to step 1 and then step 4 is added as the class proficiency increases. Once the lateral movement to the left has been reasonably accomplished, the lateral movement to the right starting with the left knee is begun.

**Right hitch kick is taught by drilling left knee smash (2) followed by right kick (2) then "now combine the 2", knee (1) - kick (1) (the hitch kick). The drill continues with knee (2), right (2), hitch (2), hold (2). The left hitch is then taught in identical fashion.

Epilogue:
This is a solid 32 beat count combination and is best taught with driving 128 - 132 bpm music which aids in the technique. Once the learning curve is maxed, a 150 bpm song such as "Eye of the Tiger" is used to push the energy over the top. No dry clother remain in class at this point.
