Aw you guys have it tough, we're naturally flexible! I'm also double jointed but I still make sure I stretch! Just kicking high will increase your flexibility enough! I kick very hard!

Thats not actually possible, there is no such thing as being double jointed. It is just a genetic condition that causes ball and socket joints to be far more shallow than the average person. Also having hypermobilty or being "double jointed" as you called in your hips can cause a lot of problems as you age. All that aside, not a clue how it would help you kick higher.

I'm not going to start on the whole "we are just more naturally flexible" statement.

Well my aunt is double jointed too and she's like in her 50's!!!! You can call it a genetic condition if you want, but it is an advantage, and one that allows me to help in my mma training. I kick like a horse purely because of my flexibility. If I was tight like most people on here are then I would not have that luxury! It helped with my ballet too! I promise you if I was double jointed I would not be able to hurt guys with my legs

It's not what I want, it is what it is. There is no such thing as being double jointed. Good for your aunt? I'm going with you're wildly misunderstanding how your flexibility helps you kick, ballet sure, but kick power and flexibility don't have a lot to do with each other. All flexibility will do is help you reach your target, different parts of the body that help you with power, as in muscles instead of tendons and joints. So unleas you're throwing savate kicks the two have very little to do with one another.

Tell that to my trainers! They say it's flexibility that improves the kick! Not the muscles and such! What are you talking about?!

Where do you train?

All of those things contribute to your kick, so if by improve you mean make it easier to kick high hit on target etc. Then sure.

Not sure if you need to know where I train. But the fact is, the more flexible your hips, the more you can produce torque and a whiplash effect when you swing from your stance! The power comes from the movement, not the muscles! How can you not know that????
