    That would be nice. You can use that training into a self defense in case of emergency. And it is also a very nice exercise for the body.
    Look for the best men's briefcase now!

          stretch properly, make sure your hip is aligned with your leg as to engage the all the muscles in the area. keep all pressure off your knees, toes pointing up and make sure you sit on the bone and not the muscle as to assure that your back is straight. but those are only basic principals, it is hard to write down how to stretch properly. i'd say go to a dance or gymnastics class to learn more, try to avoid learning off martial artists as martial arts is pretty much the only sporting system that ignores the science on human movement in favour of more traditional methods.

            Leg extenstions, hamstring curls and squats.
            I agree, traditional training will help you.
