Mikazuki geri - slap kick

By Yossi Sheriff

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.
