    I've solely been a boxer for about 2.5years now and looking to take up a couple of other martial arts, however I would like too start working on my leg flexibility now rather than later. When I say leg flexibility I'm talking about exercises that will eventually allow me to perform a full range of kicks.

    Cheers.

    ballistic stretching after a light jog then practice your kicks with good form

    Ballistic stretching is dangerous indeed. Ballistic strething muscles by forcing them passed your normal range of motion. Very dangerous as tears can happen within muscles and ligaments.
    Dynamic stretching is the way to go, this involves slowly moving through a range of motion, not going passed your maximum stretch.
