Back Stretches

List of Back Stretches

Here are a variety of back stretches used by martial arts students. Without proper stretching, the backs of martial arts students can become sore and/or tight due to the constant twisting of their body during martial arts training. This is especially true for activities such as grappling and spinning kicks.

All stretches should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order 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.
