Hello everyone. Welcome to karate-blog.net, the Karate clear and net . So today, we will see our third leg technique. We saw Mae Geri, kick forward, Geri mawashi, the roundhouse kick and now we will see Yoko Geri, kick it aside. I purposely put this video Yoko Geri just after the video horse stance since as I explained horse stance is a position for transmitting energy to the side, laterally. That’s why I put it just before Yoko Geri which is a kick aside where it will transmit energy to the side, it will often be in horse stance. We will move in horse stance. You’ll see. We will detail Yoko Geri. So I back myself to you see my legs because if you do not see my legs, it will not be easy to make kicks. Yoko Geri is a kick that is often dreaded by karatekas. because as soon as they are Yoko Geri, they often sore hips. often it’s hard to do Yoko Geri. Often done, it comes from the fact that it hurts. Often one we understand that. So we force. We want to try to lift the leg as high as possible. Then, you can not raise it higher than our flexibility allows us. By cons, we can try to raise the maximum of what we can do without getting hurt. We will start Yoko Geri. What is important is that often you will be asked to lift the front leg. Same as to Mae Geri, leg lift before then switch. This is not how to do. Yoko Geri, the first thing to do is switch the hip. hip is tipped to lift the leg. It’s this hip rocker that will lift the other? Leg to send it to the side. Okay. You first, flop. The knee comes up, but it does not rise like that before. He gets up like that. The foot is rotated there. The foot is parallel to the ground. And only in the position where we’ll straighten the leg. It tends. Is returned. It depends. OK So it’s I lift. I tend. I bring back. I rest. I tend. I bring back. I rest. I tend. I bring back. I rest. That simple Often what we see, this is it. I say that we should not raise before first because often in Mae Geri when up front, it will tilt the pelvis in the direction where and when you will want to hit on the side, we will switch back to the pool in the other direction. That fact that the basin did once before and once back. So he makes a move like that there is no need to be in Yoko Geri. Yoko Geri, pelvis, he left there. He does not do. I then before I go back. Okay. It is really on the side. I just hit on the side. After, in the legs. The supporting leg must remain slightly bent. Okay. One should not completely straighten the leg. It remains folded. I hit. That leg remains strong, as parallel as possible. Same as in horse stance where I told you that the feet are parallel to have strength on the sides, but not feet like that. It will not like that at all. When you are like that, you open the hips. In the end, you lose the connection between the leg that has gone that applied. After, there will be people who will say, “Me, I’m getting much better, turning like that.” Yes, you will get to climb a little higher, but it is not Yoko Geri. It’ll allow you a bit as I explained in Mawashi Geri, where turning the foot you win a few centimeters, but you lose efficiency. This is not the same kick. There, Yoko Geri. Often what I see is this: feet turning. In the end, it was a kind of kick that is more like Ushiro Geri. Ushiro Geri, kick behind. There is a back kick and then what we see, they are people who look like that and that ultimately lift the foot up. There, that’s not good. This is not the Yoko Geri either. It’s kind of Mae Geri. I turn and I Mae Geri on the side. Yoko Geri, you stay out. Your opponent is there. You raise your hip and leg from the side to stay out. The foot may slightly. This is not to thousandths of a millimeter, but you do not do evil even express to force the foot remains on the ground. What is needed is to think well crashing into the leg to hit and tip well. If you do not tilt enough here. So, we must lift the buttocks as high as possible. If you do not tilt enough here and there that you want to mount the leg. If you are like that, and you want to mount the leg. You can not. Just because the basin, we will imagine that it is made like this. In each articulation of the basin, you will have the head of the femur just like that. I’ll get closer so you can see well. The femoral head, when she will want to get up, she hangs there. So she can not stand. So I could raise my femur there, I have to flip my pelvis. On one side or the other, I must surely flip. There, when I tilt my pelvis, femur already rises much higher. So from here, so do not I leave the pool at the bottom and I’m trying to hit. I try to ride out the leg because it gets stuck there and it hurts. I use that leg muscles to try to climb, After a moment, I’ll end up having waddled things like that because we are going into force. It’s not good. What must you mount your leg is this rocker and inertia you have on the body. You switch the basin. Right now my leg, it rises. I did just that to keep it up. It’s not hard. Then I reach out and I bring back. I stretch and I bring back. I hit and I bring back. Before Yoko Geri really work, we will do some stretching to avoid getting hurt. Alternatively, you can also go stretching to release the hips. I you put the video. It lasts twenty minutes to half an hour. We must make good stretches, it will do you good. Before working, the video for stretching I made you, they are more to do outside of training. We’re off. It’s more to unlock some stuff, but not specifically to seek to gain flexibility. Go. We will stretch a little. Here we go to the classic stretch. You put your feet parallel. From there, you’ll put the buttocks backwards, hands on the ground. If you are unable to lay hands on the ground, I prefer that you pliiez legs a bit. It does not matter if they are not strained, but put your hands on the ground. I put myself in the sense there for you to see me. He does not need you to be like that, but as that. It should not be that you have receipts buttocks, but on the contrary as possible sortirs so that the back remains flat. The head is not like that, but she’s right. We try to keep your back flat. We’ll put backwards. Not too fell. We stand with hands. Position there, you just bend the legs. Push forward, the top remains the same. I’ll get over face for you to visualize better. Like that There, you’re pretty much in the position when you do Yoko Geri. That’s pretty much it. Often it is not a history of flexibility because there you imagine if I lift the leg, it will still higher than what you might expect. It is relatively soft. Often what prevents us from up there are more tensions during the kick. We tend to hang. Then also muscularly, we must lift the leg. This is why we need again as I will show you. We switch to the other leg and then one. The other is stretched. So there we did work here. It is they that stretch. We try to relax. It turns a little hips. in the middle we go. We go a little. One turns. Stretching the psoas major muscle On the other side. We will work a little this emergence. So you can rely on something if you have trouble. By cons, it is not necessary when you flip, you come to rely on that thing. You see, I’m leaving because I want to kick there and I hand my body over there. So there it is wrong. I must manage to maintain, to take the force there when I hit. I move my strength there. I’ll keep the body as straight as possible. So I squeeze the obliques there to come knocking. Okay. Go. We will work a little. You’re ready to work. We will greet. Yoi. We will get into position. One remains standing classic. You go up the leg like that. Just try to stay balanced. You can stand, but that one feels more Just do that by trying not to straighten the leg. You leave it well folded. Try to keep the balance on your foot. There, you have to feel that I am right. I lift a hip, I lift my hips and it lifts my leg. Think of one thing. This is to lift the buttocks as high as possible. You lift your buttocks as high as possible. Ichi Ni San Shi We will change sides. That simple. One begins. Ichi I based Ni San Shi Go we spare Ichi Ni San Shi Go we spare Ichi Ni San Shi Go Then, just as I have explained in the video Mae Geri. It must not move your arms like that. It does not take them to do that. Okay. Your arms are there. I attack there. If my opponent or against anything, I have to be there so I could parry. If I do that, I find myself tremendously. To tell you that if you put a kick, you’re not at all sure he will pass. It might not happen. We must not find you. Your opponent is not a bag. He can fight. He will try to fight. We need you here. You must be able to put a kick while there to be able to ward off another attack or some things like that. Go. Now we will lift the basin. Immediately, the trend and brought back. It tends, brought back and we set. It tends, brought back and we set When we ask, do not let the pelvis into the air. If you ask like that and you have to give one, the, you will use that leg and not the hip. It must go down in order again. well it goes down in order again. Ichi. We’re not going too fast Ni San Shi Go On the other side. Ichi Ni San Shi Go So, neck p foot there is the rather Kekomi release. That is to say that your foot up, you have a vertical path, Then from there, you will have a horizontal trajectory. I’ll switch and push my hips over there. My foot up to go there. You Keage version that is the same principle as in Mae Geri. The Keage version, it will be whipped. The walk will take the shortest possible path. So far, so get along. As if you are giving a boost here and your leg is like a whip. It takes place to come knocking. So you see my foot, it will almost diagonally. He whips and returns. He whips and returns. As soon as you hit your knee will happen Qasim ent tense and back. Is returned. You put. You are ready. So the, while at the same time you switch. You tend. Is unwound at the same time. Go. Ichi When I say at the same time, it’s just one behind the other. It is not, i rock, knock. I rock and I place. I rock and I place. Go. slowly we go. Ichi Ni San Shi Go Go On the other side. Ichi Ni San Shi Go Go I’ll get to the other side facing you go ahead Ichi Ni You see I do not have the body completely from there. I do not have the body that starts there. I move a little bit. It’s normal. This is to keep balance. I try to stay as straight as possible. Ichi Ni San Shi Go On the other side. Ichi Ni San Shi Go Yame. I wanted to say something about the height. Do not focus with the idea of making Jodan Yoko Geri. Yoko Geri, it is geared to hit Chudan, Gedan and possibly the throat, but beyond that, it’s beautiful. I mean to see Yoko Geri high, I can not. Personally, I can put a Yoko Geri at my head, but no more. We will not make a drama. In my view, this is not a fault in itself. The advantage of putting a Yoko Geri is very high when you put this up there, but in general I have no hip problem and you will get to hit well. This is not bad. Perform stretching exercises hip. I think it can do you good to ride. After often to a certain age, if you are not training all the time, you will lose and you will have more trouble. already trying to do it properly. I Rock. I lift the buttocks. Above all, I do not do that then do that. It’s not good. I’ll show you a little bit on the bag the difference between Yoko Geri Kekomi and Keage. After, we return and we work a little bit on the move. So, Like I’ve told you, I’ll show you on the bag the difference between Yoko Geri Kekomi is penetrating and Yoko Geri Keage that will come just whisk the bag. Yoko Geri Kekomi, I said, you rock your hips and you lift your foot and the highest possible buttocks. Ready to go. And only after as if you have compressed the leg toward you. Only then you will send the other foot to rub at your target. I just penetrate. I just compress and then I let go. I pressed and I enter. I pressed and I enter. The Yoko Geri Keage all done at the same time your foot comes up and goes down. It comes as a small flick. He just whipped. This is much less powerful than Yoko Geri Kekomi where, I’m coming into the bag. Here. Another thing I did not tell you earlier. Yoko Geri, you can hit with the edge of the foot, By then the party Sokuto or edge of the foot. You can hit with the heel. This is where Kakato knock with the heel. You can hit squarely with the underside of the foot. Otherwise, another important thing. I have told you that when you hit, you must have the foot parallel to the ground. When you knock on a bag there, it is because you see your best attack. It does not take your foot that way. If it is like that, what I said was that you turned and then there you are a kind of Mae Geri. All because you did not lift your hip to lift the leg. You turn and there, you get up higher. It’s normal. This is not how you do it. You really stay like that. You have to work this lift here, but not the leg lift. Get up here. Only then allowed from the leg. If your flexibility does not allow you to go higher than that, do not try to go there for now. Do some stretching. Make work gently lifted the hip and then to climb a little higher. Another thing, do not have the other foot which is found upside down like that. Here you Ushiro Geri. It was just a reminder to show you on the bag. So, movements. We will try to do Yoko Geri moving in horse stance It returns to the horse stance. You can go see the video of horse stance. Here, we will move to strike. It moves and strikes. Go. I start horse stance. I move. I hit. I ask. I move. I knock, I ask. We are ready. Go. Let’s go. side kick. You stay in Side. You do not turn your profile or from behind. It remains side. go ahead Ichi Ni San Shi Ichi Ni Now we will go a little faster. Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Yame In terms of travel, there is something else I did not tell you at first, but it seems so logical. Yoko Geri, if you are facing your opponent, the first thing to do is that we need to turn and set aside. We do not do Yoko Geri remaining like that. The first thing is: I turn and knock. After your fight, it can be: I absorb and knock. I turn and knock or I ahead of my opponent. I walk, I put myself aside and only after that knock. It’s really, I position myself on the side and then knock. You’re going to zenkutsu Dachi. What we will do is direct Yoko Geri of the back leg. Then we’ll just turn around, hit, and rests. Knock and come back. There, I’ll do is, I turn and I get up. I turn and I get up. I hit and I bring back. I bring back. I bring back. What I want is that you feel when you will want to hit there, the first thing he will have to do is look. Be side relative to the opponent. Do not have the knees here. The knee is here and walk in front of the opponent for there is more to go in a straight line, but not in a circular manner. Here, I’ll pull on my hip to return. I pull to return. Only after I bring. Ichi Ni San Shi Ichi Ni The other side. Ichi Ni well it turns and goes straight. San The arms still faces there. Ichi Ni San On the feet. You saw my foot turns. He turns. I do not specifically blocks to keep the foot parallel. For cons, I will soon make it go like that. I maintain the pressure here. At the moment of impact, do not have the feet that open. I do not want to do that. I do not want my legs open. I want it to be kicked aside. It is important to keep the force here. Same as when you were in horse stance. The strength was there for the pressure is toward the ground, but not to there. We will now work Yoko Geri. We will try to do it twice. What we will do is this. We will do Yoko Geri. Brought back and we did a second. It’s stupid. one two is returned one two is returned one two is returned Stop. Let me explain why I will let you do that. I’ll put myself in that sense. Often what happens is that you risk doing that. You hit; a. You bring the other leg, but you do not position your body. By targeting you, it will be easier for overtype. And you refrappez again. You will do one two You say, “the second, it is still hard to do.” It’s normal. The second made you stay like that. You strike. You bring. You find there. You want to put a powerful kick as the first while you do not have nothing else to do. You can not. We must strike. We must fully bring the body Then reinsert the changeover. Like that one two You really have to use the body. Do not be lazy. In fact, we want to be lazy. Remaining like that. So, we are left with the hardest kick to do. Consider moving your body more and you go free. You’ll have less trouble in the limbs. Go. We will be back. We actually now. I start like that, you’ll see better. one two one two one two one two one two You see. Each time, I have to rest my foot here and I bring my body. Only then I let him go. Go in the other direction one two one two one two one I do not stay with the body there. I brought him back. two Ichi Ni Ichi Ni I always go back a little bit because of course as I know I will make a second, I will not go completely to leave. It’s more that I bring my hip. one two Go. We will once on one side, once from each other and made into two. As earlier, we move. Ichi Ni We will be back. Ichi Ni We will be back. Ichi Ni A fairly high, once lower. Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Yame Thank you. I hope you like this video. I think Yoko Geri, we must do. I think you have to do a lot of stretching and you work slowly as has been done in order to feel this lift here. That’s what’s important, flip the pool as possible, but not to cheat by turning up for here. This is important stuff. Thank you and see you next time for a new video on karate-blog.net, clear and net Karate. Thank you. Goodbye.
