Intermediate Kumite 7 – Gyaku+Kizami-mawashi

This is the seventh 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.

Gyaku+Kizami-mawashi

Here, ‘Gyaku’ stands for ‘Gyaku-tsuki’ and ‘Kizami-mawashi’ stands for ‘Kizami-mawashi-geri’.

Start with Gyaku-tsuki the way it is explained in Kumite – Beginner.

As you pull back your hand, raise your front knee at the same time and finish the kick as explained previously.

For this combo to work, you must lift your front knee at the same time as you pull back your hand. Also, you must not bring your back foot forward before kicking, it will waste time and screw your distance.

The mistakes are to 1) pull your hand back all the way before lifting the knee, and to 2) bring your back foot forward before kicking.
