Yoko geri video
Info about "Yoko geri video"
Yoko geri is one of the most powerful of all the karate kicks, especially when aimed at the ribs or solar plexus. You can strike by using either the side or the heel of the foot. It’s recommended using the side of the foot when striking at the throat or neck, whereas the heel of the foot is best for all other targets such as the solar plexus, ribs or head.
The kick begins by bringing the knee up and then twisting sideways, thrusting the leg forward at the opponent while rotating the body on the supporting leg. Bend the supporting leg while kicking to give better balance. The foot should be pointed sideways with toes pulled tightly upward, the striking surface being the side of the foot or the heel. The leg returns to the ground quickly to stop the opponent from grabbing the leg.
