And Ive noticed over last few months some dancers that I see at the gym, point their toe when stretching. and to tel you the truth, it seems that dancers are more flexible then most martial artists that I know... so please tell me why and how I can get more flexible and able to kick vertical more ease. and if one knows where to find more info on stretching and kicking like Chloé Bruce... Thanks people.
