Ura mikazuki geri - inside slap kick

By Yossi Sheriff

Ura mikazuki geri (בעיטת סטירה מבחוץ) inside crescent kick, is very effective as it hits the opponent from his weak side- and with good timing is extremely difficult to forsee and avoid. The kicke is meant to hit the opponent's face and could very easily knock him to the ground if performed properly. The range of the kick is quite short which adds to its effectiveness as it will be used outside the opponent's field of vision.
