List of Ankle Stretches
Here are a variety of ankle stretches used by martial arts students. Given the spinning movements and kicking done in martial arts training, ankle injuries are a common problem. Proper stretching and warm-up exercises can help to reduce the potential for ankle strains and injuries.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting other areas of the body, please visit the main Martial Arts Stretches page.
