All different styles of martial arts require barefoot movement to be precise and powerful. Because we are all born with different foot types, some people in martial arts will be more predisposed to injuries than others.
All martial arts; especially karate, kung fu, kick boxing and taekwondo require girls and boys at an early age to develop strong intrinsic foot strength along with a strong core and mobile hips to help progress from junior ranks to senior ranks or belts. Furthermore having strong feet in all different styles of martial arts is vital to hold shape and maintain the aesthetics of the movement especially when doing kata or gradings to advance belts.
We understand with our fighters that are performing regularly and professionally that there is constant need for foot and ankle care to help ensure they can continue holding form throughout their training and sparring.
On top of this for our junior fighters who are growing fast and endeavouring to impress, the alignment of the foot and ankle is vital to help sustain training efficiencies as they begin to do more representative level training alongside their school commitments and sometimes additional sporting commitments.
If you are in pain now or simply want to look at ways to prevent injury there is never a better time than now to have your body, training loads and feet looked at.
All assessments are 30 minutes and 45 minutes for those patients who require screening or have had a chronic or resilient problem which has been untreatable so to speak over a long period of time.
