My club has been giving a few of these to try https://kickai.com/

They're small Bluetooth based trackers which track kick speed, reaction time and kick volume. So far very impressed and there's some fun modes in the app like survival mode. Not sure whether the data is that useful to us in the long run, kick speed only tells part of the story. Still it seems to be engaging the kids well.

Has anyone used this type of thing before?

No. I've not ever seen or used this training device; looks quite interesting. Like any training device, it has its share of pros and cons. I've from the side of the fence that'll darn near try anything once, if not just for curiosity sake. Something I just might have to give it a go; worse thing is that it'll have its novelty, yet it has my interest peaked.

Thanks for sharing that, Danielle.

That is very interesting. I'd be interested in seeing data on my kicks, for sure. Are you drilling with it regularly?

Used it once then I broke my hanging bag bracket they only record a kick when they sense an impact so you need to kick a bag or pads. They were created for WT Taekwondo so they have also been using them in sparring with the hogu as that will record the impact. I'd like to try them in sparring where I think it would be more useful but as we use foot pads rather than hogu I'm not sure how that will interfere with the sensor. As an adult they seem to work fine but I don't know whether the kids can kick hard enough to get a reading on the sensor (some of my rubbish kicks weren't registering).

I would be interested to see how it works hooked up to hogu and doing some sparring. In our classes, even with the pads, we have pretty moderate contact, not really drilling each other, so I'd be interested to see what it would take to register impact.

It's about $234 for two trackers and everything you need to use them.

That doesn't seem like a bad price, depending on the versatility of the equipment.

Oh ok, that seems quite reasonable. Might have to give it a try; many of my Student Body might enjoy this one way or another. Thank you, Patrick.
