BASIC Kicking

THEIR LEARNING, EXERCISE AND TECHNIQUE

The specifics of performing kicks is that the position of the legs, on which you have to constantly rely and on which you need to constantly move, is not convenient for striking. It follows that for any kick, you must first take a comfortable position, and transfer the body weight to one leg, freeing the other to apply the required kick. In addition, the process of inflicting a kick connected directly with the extension of the leg must be preceded by a process of bending the leg, bringing the foot to its original position for striking.

Taking into account the above factors, it is not difficult to conclude that kicking requires a lot of energy and is longer in time than kicking.

Almost all executed kicks, with the exception of knee kicks, can be divided into two phases of movement according to the technique of execution. The first phase of the movement is the preparatory phase. It involves bending the leg to strike and transferring body weight to the supporting leg.

The second phase is the phase of the direct execution of the strike. It is associated with leg extension and striking.

When performing strikes, breathing and the go-ahead of the hands are extremely important. When performing the first, preparatory phase of movement associated with bending the leg, which will strike, be sure to take a breath. When performing the second phase of movement associated with extension of the leg and directly with the striking, an exhalation is made.

A go-ahead with your hands is always performed at the same time as you exhale and strike. Exhaling and correctly performed hand signal by the hand contribute to an increase in shock of up to 10 - 20%.

SHOCK "MAE - GERI"

May-geri strike is widespread in all types of martial arts, and quite often in application.

Basically, two types of May-Geri strike are distinguished:

upward stroke - "keage", which is performed along an ascending path from bottom to top,

and penetrating blow - “kekomi”, which is performed along a complicated trajectory: the first phase is the movement of the thigh from the bottom up, the second phase is the movement of the thigh from top to bottom.

May Gery kicks can be long and short. It depends on the depth of penetration during their implementation.

In the direction of our type of karate, mainly long kicks prevail.

A strike is considered long, which is performed with the removal of the thigh and pelvis, and is accompanied by a turn on the foot of the supporting leg. A short stroke is considered to be a strike that is performed only with the extension of the thigh, and when performing such a strike, the foot of the supporting leg retains its original position (the position of the supporting leg, occupied before striking).

May-geri strike can be carried out at various levels along the height of the enemy’s growth and can be applied with the heel (Fig. 685 - right view), or the toe (Fig. 686 - right view and 687 - straight view), in rare cases, by lifting, .

The most effective may-geri strike is when applied to the level of the belt and lower (to the lower level of the body, groin).

For effective use in the middle and upper part of the body, the may-geri hit the head in jumps and in this case is called the “may-gobi-geri".

The May-Gerry strike is unlearned, practiced and performed with the obligatory go-ahead. A well-placed, right-handed hand signal contributes to the most effective execution of the blow, increasing its strength and speed.

Learning and practicing the May-Geri strike should begin in the Zen-Kutsu-Dachi stance with the May-Kekomi-Geri strike technique.

Learning the May Gerry strike.

Cut a circle with a diameter of 5 - 8 centimeters from a piece of thick paper and use glue or a button to attach it to the wall at a distance of 40 - 50 centimeters from the floor. This circle will determine the height level at which the May-geri strike should be learned. When learning, the May-Geri strike is first performed only from the left foot for a specified number of times (or a predetermined time), then one should proceed to learning the May-Geri strike from the right foot.

Stand opposite this circle at a distance of 1 meter from the wall so that the circle is centered on your body and your leg extended to the circle does not reach 20-30 cm, (Fig. 689 - right view).

Learning the May-Geri strike from the right foot.

Step back to the Hedari-Zen-Kutsu-Dachi counter. Bend your right hand, bent at the elbow, so that the shoulder is parallel to the floor, and the forearm is perpendicular. Take the straight arm with your left hand a little back, (Fig. 695 a - straight view and Fig. 695 b - right view).

Push off with your right foot and, transferring body weight to your left foot, lift slightly on your left foot, lifting your right thigh forward up. With the movement of the right thigh forward, the right lower leg is pressed to the thigh, the foot is pulled upward, while the hands do not change their position (Fig. 696a - straight view and Fig. 696b - right view). This movement of the legs and the whole body represents the first phase of the May-Geri strike from the right foot and is performed simultaneously with a breath ..

The second phase of the May-Geri strike begins with the movement of the right thigh down and the straightening of the leg in the direction of the circle attached to the wall. Straightening the right foot, we pull the foot towards us, pushing the heel forward to strike it.

With the movement of the right thigh down and straightening the legs, lower the right hand down and back, straightening it in the elbow. At the same time, bending the left hand in the elbow, we bring the left fist to the right shoulder (Fig. 697a - straight view and Fig. 697b - right view) ..

This movement of the legs and the whole body represents the second phase of the May-Geri strike from the right foot and is performed simultaneously with the exhalation ..

When performing the second phase of the May-Geri ular, the movement of the hands, (their go-ahead), begins simultaneously with the movement of the right leg and also ends simultaneously with the end of its movement. When finishing the May-Gerry strike, try to fix the right foot at a distance of 10-15 cm from the circle attached to the wall.

Having fixed the right leg in the position of striking for 1.5 - 2 seconds, (Fig. 698 a - straight view and Fig. 698 b - right view). one movement of the right thigh up, return it to the position that it occupied before the start of the second phase of movement. In the same way, we return to the place and hands, (Fig. 699 a - straight view and Fig. 699 b - right view). At the same time, with the return of the arms and legs to this position, we take a breath.

Following the movement, simultaneously with the exhalation, set the right foot back, taking up the “hedari-zen-kutsu-dachi” stance to perform the next blow from the right leg. At the same time, the hands continue to maintain their position (Fig. 700 a - straight view and Fig. 700 b - right view).

Practicing the May-Geri strike from the Khedari-Zen-Kutsu-Dachi stance from the right foot.

Step back to the Hedari-Zen-Kutsu-Dachi counter. Bend your right hand, bent at the elbow, so that the shoulder is parallel to the floor, and the forearm is perpendicular. Take your left hand straight back a little (Fig. 707 - right view). Push off with your right foot and, transferring body weight to your left foot, lift slightly on your left foot, lifting the right thigh forward up with a sharp movement. With the movement of the right thigh forward, the right lower leg is pressed to the hip, the foot is pulled down, and the fingers of the right foot are up. This movement of the legs and the whole body represents the first phase of the May-geri strike from the right foot and is performed simultaneously with the inspiration (Fig. 708 - right view).

With the beginning of the second phase, a sharp movement of the right lower leg up forward, we straighten the right leg forward, pulling the toes of the right foot upward towards us. We strike at the same time as we exhale with the toe of the right foot, making a slight turn on the front of the left foot with the heel inward.

With a sharp straightening of the right leg and striking, we make a sharp wave down with our right hand, fully straightening the right hand in the elbow. At the same time, bending the left hand in the elbow, we bring the left fist to the right shoulder (Fig. 709 a - right view).

Having fixed the right leg in the position of striking for 1.5 - 2 seconds, (Fig. 710 - left view), with one movement of the right thigh up, return it to the position that it occupied before the start of the second phase of movement. In the same way, we return to the place and hands (Fig. 711 - left view). At the same time, with the return of the arms and legs to this position, we take a breath. With the next movement, simultaneously with the exhalation, we set the right foot back, taking up the “hedari-zen-kutsu-dachi” stance to perform the next blow from the right leg. At the same time, the hands continue to maintain their position (Fig. 712 - left view) ..

It is best to work out the May-Geri strike into space. The main thing to pay attention to is that it must be applied in a straight line on which the rack is engaged. It is imperative to fix the leg in the position of striking for 1 - 2 seconds, and only then begin to return to its original position. In the future, when the blow is well enough studied, instead of fixing the leg in the position of the impact, you should do the reverse action, its quick return immediately after striking, i.e. do not fix, but immediately, after striking, pull out sharply back, back. To enhance the penetrating action of the impact, a pelvis should be put into the impact, making a minor turn after the ejection of the lower leg on the front of the foot of the supporting leg. turning around on the front of the foot with the heel inward about 45 degrees.

History of occurrence

As for the history of the May-Geri strike, it is as old as the martial arts themselves. In old karate there were three to four punches and one kick, and that was May-geri. After all, May Geri is a more natural and straightforward blow. Even anatomically, it is closer to us and more natural than other blows. Performing it is easier and easier to maintain balance, which is very important when applying the geri technique. The effectiveness of May Geri in sparing depends on the correct execution of the blow itself and of course many other aspects - this is of course distance, timing, speed, balance and so on.

The main principles of technology

I will try to describe the main principles of the technique for performing and practicing the May-Geri strike. First of all, this is the correct stand, that is, the supporting leg should be slightly bent forward and firmly stand on the floor. The back is straight, the abdominal muscles under control (center) and the abdominal muscles should be well trained. The knee of the shock leg should be raised to chest level. Highly raised knee, fully bent, heel pressed to the buttock. The ease and speed of lifting the knee depends on certain lead-in exercises, which allows you to maintain balance and ensure the correct trajectory of the shock leg. At the time of the kick, the lumbar and hips should be pushed in the direction of impact, the supporting leg is tense and stiff, the foot does not turn, it is directed towards the movement of the hips. The effectiveness of performing a blow depends on the distance, at a close distance a longer click strike (keage) is used, while the hips give an impulse, the supporting leg does not change its position, the effectiveness of the blow depends on the degree of stretching and contraction of the muscles of the shock leg.

At an average distance, the knee of the supporting leg slightly leans forward, the hips are pushed out in the direction of the impact. At a long distance, the supporting leg bends more forward, the hips are pushed forward due to the extension of the supporting leg at the moment of touching the shock surface with the target. The same principle as when performing a basic strike oi-tsuki. The foot makes an arcuate movement in an ascending line, the knee serves as its axis. Even when striking, the main condition is speed. A slow blow loses force and leads to a loss of balance. Therefore, the return of the foot (hiki ashi) is no less important than the kick itself. When striking, there should be no wiring and aimed at warning about the strike, the strike is applied suddenly and quickly. Of course, it can be hidden behind a bunch, for example, a bunch of two hands, plus a direct kick. Usually the blow is done with the pads of the foot (koshi), but the toes and the raising of the foot can also be used, depending on which part of the body the blow hits.

Direct kick - may-geri, ap-chagi, front kick

Self-defense and traditional military equipment in Chelyabinsk. Individual approach. Not a sport. Your instructor: Azamat Chinasov. + 7- (919) -114-18-27 About the school

Why are there so many foreigners in the name? Everything is very simple. Mae-geri is the name for a direct kick in karate and generally in all Japanese combat systems. Adherents of Taekwondo (and Hapkido) direct kick are called up chagi. In kickboxing, Thai boxing it has the name front kick, although in Thailand, studying some kind of plow (do not laugh, this is an applied Muay Thai style), you can run into a more exotic name. And this is no longer in the title. Dentui - a direct heel strike in the wushu, dantui - a pad under the toes of the foot.

Great Kicking Technique

Kicking Technique in any school begins with a direct kick. Why? There are many factors, but the main ones are ease of execution (of course, relatively more complex strokes), low exactingness of this strike to the physical state of the performer (even an old man can use it in normal training), the ability to keep the violent aggressor at a distance, stopping him with a hard stop blows, performing a direct kick with the leg closest to the opponent, you can’t practically open, and finishing with a kick from the far leg, you can easily break the ribs or even the chest. By the way, those who know how to perform this hit easily knock them the average door "from honest people." In short, the punch is good. But why are there so few knockouts in sports with a direct kick? The answer is painfully simple. People take care of their toes, so instead of the sharp dagger may-geri and the front of the kicks, we see light and not very direct jerks of the feet.

- pushing the foot from the support, raise the leg, bending it strongly in the knee, aiming the foot at the future target,

-continuing the movement, we straighten the leg almost completely (completely impossible, because the knees are bo-bo over time or in case of a miss with a strong blow), leading the foot to the target with a clearly selected striking surface ...

-by striking, pushing from the target due to which ...

- quickly return to the starting position or put your foot where it is more profitable for us for tactical reasons.

Kicking Technique: Thai Straight Kick

"Thai" direct kick (type) from the ancestors in 2 versions (Fight Vision)

I had one friend. His name was Kolyan (in fact, he was Caucasian, but did not say his real name). Kolyan was, I think, and there is a very good tayboxer with the delivered shock equipment of both arms and legs. But with all my set, I was surprised at how hard he hits a direct kick. He, in turn, was very afraid of my direct kicks and often spar in panic when he hinted at a solid May-geri.

Although, as for general physical training, he was much more trained than me at that time. Fizeau drove very fanatically.

I'm not saying that I am an incredible fighter, because the adequate ones will immediately ask: “Where are your regalia, where did you perform, what did you win?” He performed very little, but fought and sparred with a decent number of people, there were group fights and even two versions of stabbing. Alive, healthy, which means that what I do in battle works. Sparring and sparring, at least on an equal footing with black karate-kiokushinkai belts. Okay, distracted.

So, this kick should not only be similar to the hit of the ram, which smashed the gates of besieged cities in ancient times, it must also be very biting. In general, I believe that all techniques of kicking should be biting and heavy at the same time, excluding only those that go into crushing (for example, kicked into the knee and, while continuing to move, press the foot on the opponent’s foot, forcing him to rest on that knee). In case of a whip, it is very important not to bend your knees, adhering to the golden rule of wushu: "when you kick with your foot in the knee joint, always leave a slight fold so that the chicken egg can fit there."

Individual training. Only working, rational and realistic techniques. Not a sport. Become a fighter and start to be proud of yourself! Start workout.

Прямой удар используется для атаки уязвимых мест практически по всему телу, но стандартно его используют в спорте для атаки солнечного сплетения, живота, груди (только пяткой) и головы (чаще всего подбородок, если наклоненный человек — то его бьют в лицо — так в К1 Глоб Фейтоса вынес Гарри Гудриджу несколько зубов одним, казалось бы, лёгким мае-гери). Им можно как начинать атаку, так и бить на выходе из, например, связки ударов руками. Для прикладухи прямой удар ногой вообще незаменим, т.к. firstly, they beat most often with a shod foot, which makes it possible to ruthlessly beat on the knees, hips, stomach, sides, back, and secondly, it’s very convenient to beat our kick with a stick (with a grabbed hand you won’t protect yourself and there’s no way to go back). Adherents of Krav Magi, having successfully grabbed the opponent’s hand, often bluntly and simply beat the opponent with serial direct blows of one or both legs in turn from the knees to the waist level. They act in approximately the same way in Okinawan karate, although it is true that quite often one may-geri is quite enough (I apologize to the offended Krav Magi fans), the hapkido also uses this technique, only some bone-breaker will be screwed to it.

But perhaps one of the intelligible training videos on a direct kick. There are no jambs that are associated with excessively low positions, no squatting in a low stance and other nonsense, which supposedly should distinguish oriental martial arts from kickboxing. In short, the guy clearly knows the place of low and wide positions in taekwondo, that you can sit in them only for educational purposes. Not in battle. The fighting stance should be shorter. Feet should not be wider than a little more than a normal step. And further. In the groin and lower abdomen, I advise you to beat with a pad as well, and not with a lift (so no block will help).

You can’t do without it! A selection of good May Gery performances in sports.

Photos - Direct kick to the body

Hard front over shocked adversary

So how to develop a bone-breaking technique of direct kick, which would not be embarrassing to put scumbags into the heat of a fight and show some martial artists? First of all, you need to realize that your legs are probably not very sharpened and straightened weapons, but WEAPONS like a dagger, baton or sword. I like to compare my may-geri with a spear prick. Presented? Now think, is it really possible to wave a loose battle with an active MILITARY WEAPON? If you think you can, then you can not read further.

Impacts need to work out as a bare foot, and shod. When hitting a bare foot, I personally prefer to hit with a small pillow under my fingers, but in shoes - with a heel (heel). But this is not a dogma for me. Sometimes a situation may have to be hit with a toe in shoes and this will be a victorious blow, so I work out all the possible options (there are not so many of them). For working with a bare foot, you will definitely need a heavy bag (at least 70-80 kg), and for working in shoes (it is optimal to take old, but dense and powerful, massive boots, no sneakers or lightweight sneakers, if you want to kick properly), trees will do as well (their trunks), which, in order to beat without fear with all their might, can be wrapped with some rags or rubber (show your imagination), for both options makiwara can be used, which you can make yourself or buy. This is the ramming time. This must be done first time.

At makiwara, too, work only on penetration, without concentrating on quickly pulling the leg. When you feel that the blow "went", that is. became more confident and tougher, you are not reeling during execution and you can even think about something outsider, breaking a technical ram ram blow in a straight line, start practicing a quick return of the leg to its original position after touching the target. It’s technically correct to punch a direct hit, as if starting from the target at the time of the strike. Imagine that your leg is burning, piercing the target. Here a mistake may creep in. You will pull the leg out of the impact before it hits the target. It is not right. Not touching, but breaking through !! The technique of kicking should use the huge force of the leg muscles to the fullest, which are 3-5 times stronger than the muscles of the arms (there are no talk about mutants). From the exercises I can advise the same work with the bag, makiwara, trees, but in a slightly different way. We fix the rubber tourniquet on the foot (leg) and work on the shells, overcoming its tension. The leg will be pulled back by the tourniquet, which will help to relax it in this phase and, accordingly, accelerate the blow. It also teaches you to quickly return the leg to the fastest possible accented pace. direct kicks on shells (bag, makiwara, etc.), we present at the time of the exercise that the leg is “burnt” and “piercing” the shell, and touching the floor (ground). Further development makes sense only with movements.

When I was engaged in hand-to-hand combat based on karate and Kadochnikov’s style with Shirko V.A., I couldn’t absolutely understand, well, WHY my my many times worked May-geri didn’t strike adversaries as promised in the relevant literature. And not only may-geri, but also yoko-geri, which is already there. And the explanation was this: we must move! But how? This has not been reported. It showed the movement, often used by karateka according to the rules of VUKO, in a rather low food court, from which you honestly don’t shoot fast, except with a grab, as I understood after 5 years, but this requires a completely different blow, which This article will not be considered.

If this kick (direct kick from the stick) is interesting, then I will write about it if you ask me about it in the comments to this article.

Now let's talk about how to move to implement a direct kick.

In total there are 6 options, including jumping and jumping:

  1. with a full step and with a substep,
  2. after multiplication in place or offset by multiplication,
  3. jerk (when one leg as if knocks out another)
  4. in the slip (bouncing on the support, slipping over the floor),
  5. in the jump with the phase of flight (fly in the jump),
  6. in a jump.

A strike even works in battle if you strike it unexpectedly and preferably on an unprepared enemy, or if you have very good speed. All strokes in motion with the right moment of their application and a known level of sophistication work very well.

1. Direct kick with a step

This is the most common type of stepping into this blow and is quite effective.

2. A direct hit after scaling in place or displacement by scoring

Unfortunately, I did not find an adequate video. Or outright nonsense, or pictures. Perhaps I’ll take it off myself if I don’t find anything.

But, I’ll help you get a general idea right now. Watch this video, but instead of kicking from the side, imagine that you are kicking a direct kick. This will be the same one with the cutoff in place or with a slight displacement of the blow.

3. A direct hit, jerking

4. Direct hit with a slip

5. Direct kick in the jump

The same video, just a different timecode, did so for easy viewing. In general, I advise you to view it in its entirety, as the instructor is none other than Jompop Kiatphontip, Muay Thai Kru (Muay Thai Teacher), former No1 at Rajadamnern Stadium (was No. 1 at the legendary Rajadamnern Stadium) and Head coach of Kiatphontip Gym in Leeds (now the head coach in the self-name hall in the English city of Leeds).

6. Direct kick jump

I saw the application of this direct strike option at MXterme tournaments in Thailand, it was done by some Burmese weighing a little more than 50 kg. But while the video from karatek is very worthy of doing. This is a direct hit in the jump, as I understand it, with a slight hover in the air.

Well, that’s all, dear reader, about a direct kick. If there is. what to add or it is interesting to ask something, then write it in the comments below, I will definitely answer within 24 hours.
