Brown Belt Basics Mawashi Geri, Uraken Uchi, Gyaku zuki. Combination 4

This is our fourth brown belt combination of five stepping combinations. Needed when testing from 3rd Kyu brown belt to 2nd Kyu brown and white belt
Mawashi geri (round house kick), Uraken uchi (backfist strike), Gyaku zuki (reverse punch)

1. Keep kamae as you lift the kicking knee, then switch the arms at the same time you kick.
2. Drive off the supporting leg after the side thrust kick and execute uraken uchi.
3. Finish with gyaku zuki chudan

Working on shomen and hanmi, hikite and the snap back of gyakuzuki.

Try and stay relaxed throughout the movement, with kime only for a split second at the end of each technique.


The height of the kick is not important, we would rather see a strong low kick than a weak high kick.
