This is the sixth lesson on intermediate kumite. You now know the two basic hand techniques, maegeri, kizami-mawashi, mawashi, kizami-ura-mawashi and ura-mawashi.
If you don’t, you can go back to beginner kumite.
In this lesson, we’ll be looking at a new kick.
Here, ‘Kizami’ stands for ‘Kizami-tsuki’ and ‘Gyaku’ stands for ‘Gyaku-tsuki’.
Start with Kizami-tsuki and make sure both your feet move forward. Finish with Gyaku-tsuki and make sur both your feet move forward again.
Make sure to pull back your Gyaku all the way to your hip and back to the basic stance.
For this combo to work, you must throw the Gyaku at the same time as you are pulling back your Kizami.
The mistake is to completely pull back the Kizami before you throw the Gyaku.
