Squats – Martial Arts Strength Training

This page looks at the strength training exercise known as Squats or Air Squats. This exercise can improve leg strength and thus is used by some martial artists in order to develop stronger martial arts kicks.

This technique focuses on squats without weights. For information on squats with weights (i.e. dumbbells or barbells), please visit the “Barbell Squats” page.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For more exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Strength Training page.
