Bill Wallace, known as "Superfoot," was the PKA Middleweight Champion kickboxer for nearly six years and won 23 consecutive professional fights between 1974 and 1980, and is a 10th Dan Black Belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate.

Wallace began wrestling in high school, and training judo shortly after. However, an injury to his right knee forced him to stop, and instead turn his attention to karate, which he began training while in the Air Force. After reaching success as a tournament-style competitor, he switched to full-contact fighting and netted 23 consecutive, professional fights between 1974 and 1980. His nickname, Superfoot, comes from the remarkable prowess of his left kicking leg - with some kicks clocked at 60 MPH - since his right knee never fully recovered.

Being able to kick so high and so precisely required extraordinary flexibility, which is what is covered in this stretching session!
