Mikazuki geri - crescent kick (בעיטת סטירה) is not a very fast or powerful kick - but it is directed at the face of the opponent. The direction from which it hits the opponent is what makes it very dangerous as it comes above and around the opponent's arms- where he cant see it coming. When used correctly, this kick can knock an opponent to the ground.
Description of the Mikazuki geri - slap kick
The user of the technique sends his back leg at the height of the opponent's face. The foot of the kicking leg is meant to be bent- so the sole of the foot hits the opponent's face.
