I think anyone trained in ballet would have some fantastic kicks once they learned the movements...I have nothing but respect for anyone who trains in ballet...ok...don't laugh folks but in high school I actually took ballet for a short while to help me with extra agility training while playing middle linebacker on our football team...NO I did not wear any of the clothes...although if they would of had some tight purple spandex back then I would of at least tried it on just to see how it felt against my body......ok since you all are close to puking in your mouth on that one.... just let me state that ballet training ain't no joke...it was unbelievably hard and actually much harder than martial arts training in my opinion...it did help me with my agility....I had 170 tackles in 10 games and led all of southwest Ohio..including the Cincinnatti and Dayton Ohio areas in tackles that year...Hahhh...so yep it helped...I also think real deal Yoga training also helps...which I have been into since about 1972 or so...I'm sorry but I'm still not convinced on the hip structure thing...BUT...my first Korean instructor way back in 1970 used to yell at us while stretching "you Americans need to throw your couch and chairs away and sit on floor" "too much furniture and not enough stretching!!!" and he was right then and now....
alright enough babbling...I'm gonna go look for some purple spandex and a half dozen circus midgets...you all can fill in the blanks!!
