WHY? That's not going to help speed up anything. Resistance bands are far better and some plyometric drills will sharpen you up but the truth is, Kicking in competition (and reality come to that) is not really about the leg speed, it's all about good timing. Knowing when to kick, and where to kick from. Knowing what kicks work off of what lines etc. Learn to hit the target first, even if it's too hard and then start learning control. The other way round is no good.
