Martial Arts Stretching Splits Video

by admin on November 7, 2009

This is a relatively good video on using a isometric stretching static passive method of the stretching splits exercise. The instructor mistakingly identifies it as a static active stretch. Note how he is contracting the antagonistic muscles of the inner thigh (isometric stretching) and holding his position (static stratching), using his bodyweight to assist with the flexibility stretches (passive stretching).  This one martial arts stretching exercise takes advantage of multiple methods for its effectiveness. While the subject of this video is obviously an advanced student, these techniques can be used by less seasoned martial artists to help increase their range of motion. Just be sure to listen to your body when performing this martial arts stretching splits exercise, don’t stretch too much at any one time and stop before you feel pain.
