What are some good groin/leg stretches I can do at home that would help with martial arts?

Two of my favourites are:

Cross one foot in front of the other, and then while keeping your knees locked let your body hang down in front. Don’t force yourself down, and don’t bounce. You should feel the stretch in behind the knee.

Next, put your feet as close together as you can while being able to bend down and place your hands flat on the floor between your feet. You should feel a stretch. If you don’t, bring your feet closer together and try again.

Make sure you do any stretch for at least 10 seconds or it won’t really do anything. Move slowly and smoothly while stretching, and don’t forget to breathe!
