Karaté – Mawashi Geri : Round House Kick [Karate-Blog.net]

November 18, 2019

Hello everyone, and welcome to this new video on karate-blog.net, clear and net Karate. Today we will see a foot technique. For now, we only saw Mae Geri. So there we will see a new walking technique, it’s been long time since we spoke kick. This is Mawashi Geri: the roundhouse kick. Mawashi Geri is very experienced competitors since, already, it is quite visually speaking. It’s impressive. You have a foot up in the face of the opponent, so it is not bad and in addition it marks three points. So, competitors like the technique well. In addition, compared to traditional Karate, it is a technique that has modified a little to gain distance. And so the competitors benefit from this change often to use it a little differently. We will see in the end, it is not specifically a way that is completely ineffective. But hey, this is not the Mawashi Geri as one must learn in traditional Karate. So we will take what we saw in the article. Mawashi Geri: we will break it down into three phases. And we will work on all three phases to strengthen the supporting leg and then to see how some places the pond during the three phases. Then we will make exercises: back leg, front leg, posing in front, behind laying on the side … in short, we will do lots of exercises on it. Geri mawashi. I’ll show you once. Geri mawashi. It’s not complicated. You raise your leg to the side, turn, and knock back. So this is the roundhouse kick. In English, it’s called: Round House Kick. Round House, that means around the house, and kick, kick it. I like this translation, I find that with the fact that it is circular, it also explains what for. It is this: when your opponent is on guard in front of you, it is used to turn around his guard to come and attack on the sides, on the flanks. It can not protect themselves or be like that on one side or the other. It protects front. And by Round House Kick we just go around, we just turn around his guard to hit the sides. So I like this translation, that’s why I put it in the article. Mawashi Geri: the roundhouse kick. The foot will have a trajectory … So here, then, there is a curved path like that to come to the finish: your foot is horizontal or even slightly downhill, horizontal agreement. The technique will decompose. You put yourself in front of me and you go to work in the mirror, like me. So it is positioning zenkutsu Dachi or Fudo Dachi, the leg is not so tense anyway … we will raise it immediately … Dachi position zenkutsu. You go up the back leg to the side, lifts his knee with the leg as tightly as possible. It is necessary that your foot is as close as possible here. It is not necessary that your foot is tight. It does not take you to do that. It must be: I get up, but I think to tighten here behind the thigh to maintain contact between the heel to the buttock, it does not always happen at the touch, but it’s not very serious. The important thing is to squeeze the most possible. Is lifted. I tell you now: this is not the knee is thought to lift, it’s hip is thought to rise. It gives this: I raise the hip, and it’s up to hip, rocking hips that will lift the buttock and knee. Its very important. Look: the hips, they are like that. You have a pool that is like that, with the femurs coming inside. The pool was like that. I’ll get … it’s easier that way. The pool is like that: your hip if you try moving without lifting hip, it will block, you could not go. So you have to switch the hip in order to lift the leg. So here is what we do: hip is tipped to open the link here for the knee, you can sunrise. If you stay the leg down, then you can not unless you are very flexible. That is anatomically absurd. So it looks hip. Come on, you do it at the same time: I lift the leg there is always bent, I stay in balance, I will turn, I send my knee there and my hip through there. And once my knee and my hip are almost to the axis of my opponent or my target, only there, I tend to hit the leg. Not here. often we see who do that: they do that and once they are there, they tend leg. The problem is that they do not hit the opponent. Where when they hit the … Often they already have straight leg and after they try to turn … Eventually you get hurt. This is completely ineffective. So do not let go of the leg too soon. It retains it retains as a spring, turn, turn … is released. It retains, it retains … we let go and back. Come on, we do it together gently. We lift, turn, knock it back. And back through the same place to come back to ask. We lift, turn, knock it back. You see, it is not easy to do it slowly, it is very difficult. The goal, it will be well decomposed movement and many feel that you needed to have a good solid supporting leg, but not completely taut. The other leg should be bent, the foot turns, there should be roughly parallel to him who knocks. You must not run like that completely. It will review it after, it’ll compete because you are looking to go far touch. But you lose everything: the connection between the two legs, the connection between the target and the ground; therefore, it will not. Come on, resumes. One two three four. One, two, three, four, five and six. hip is lifted, turn the hip, one tends leg and back leg straight, we return the leg back and switches back hip. One, two, three and four. The other leg. I hope I’ll be a little better. One, two, three, and four. One, two, three and four. One, two, three and four. At your arms your arms should always be toward your opponent. You will change of guard, but the arms are always there. Do not do that … often, we see that. The problem is that once you get to there, you can not protect you. The arms should stay ahead. One, two, it serves the abs and stuff to keep the body straight, three, and brought back here. One two three four five six. One two three four five six. Then, taken up on the other side. So now, while still going slowly, we will all move on. In reality, Mawashi Geri is not one, two, three … your opponent will laugh it … It’s not that. That is: you go there, I go back and knock. I look up, the foot is a circular motion and relaxes to … So we will softly. A, and is brought back, keeping the highest possible knee. Two three four five, Yame. This side. At the point of impact, or hit you with Koshi: we will see just now on the bag; or so, with the top of the foot. Everything depends. In competition, rather we will do so with the instep because Koshi: it is forbidden. You might do some damage when you hit with the party there. Come on, the other side. Slowly. One two three four five, Yame. Come on, we take here. And we start to go a little faster: knock it back. One two three four five. The other side. One two three four five, Yame. So you’ve probably seen, often, we tend to hit and not to bring the leg like that, we’ll bring it back here. It is not that bad. What is serious is to do that: it is to hit, to have the extended leg, and drop it. So you bring the way. It’s not that, you have to hit, back and be in balance. There, I ask here. Here I come to ask behind. There, I ask before. But I hit and I just ask where I want. That’s what is important: good strike and bring the leg immediately. Gather to your center of gravity is located above your supporting leg. When you come knocking there, your center of gravity will move away a little, you tend to lose a little balance, which is not abnormal. But immediately, remove the hip to return. Do not stay cantilever there, or you may fall. You will be taken by your opponent. We must not forget that when we give a kick, one is never sure if the kick is coming hit the target. Finally, this is not a bag of strikes is an opponent that moves, defending itself. That’s why you have to knock, and the leg was returned immediately. Because if it did not hit him, he can take the leg and you’re really in a position still delicate. It can scan you, it can do many things. So do not stay down. A knock it back and we immediately comes to reposition. We must bring the leg as quickly as possible to power down quickly. If your leg is extended, you harder to back down. Come on, we will continue now. We will strike, and easier than earlier: instead of resting behind; you see my foot is found in the management there, then I’ll take my hip and put it here. I find myself there. Then I hit and I rest. We will turn like that. I hit and I rest. Every time we hit: in the center there, in the center there, in the center there, in the center there. This is done four times on one side, and then four times in the other direction. Go. We are not going very fast. Ichi, ni, san, shi. The other side. Ichi, ni. Ichi, ni, Yame. So you see? Kick back leg: this really is the basis of Mawashi Geri you have to work for your muscles. We must beef up the muscles that you will rotate the hip. It takes muscle gluteus there, it is they who make up the knee. The supporting leg: you have any muscles. But it is by the back leg Mawashi Geri you will gain muscles in the legs, that will be most effective. So, now we’ll see Mawashi Geri front leg. I think when you start, do not. It must already be back leg because with the front leg is harder to break down the different phases because they are much shorter. Let me explain, you’re going to do this: you already, a first, position yourself ahead. I Tsugi Ashi, it’s called like that. The cast is not Tsugi Ashi. I have to position myself and there you go to both the number one phase that is to say, lift the hip, I get the hip and at the same time, rotate. You see it is very short. I do this and it is very short. I raise my hip and I do my rotation is very short. And at the same time to meet me as when we do kick back leg at the end of the number two phase. So I come and immediately … But do not forget to do: I get up and I turn simultaneously. I get up and I turn simultaneously. Come on, we will do it: I get up and I turn simultaneously. I point my knee as far as possible towards the opponent, slightly after its axis, and at the same time I lift the buttocks as high as possible. One, two, be careful not to turn the leg like that. There is strength in the inner thighs, I keep the strength here to keep an affair at the time of striking the ground. Ichi, ni, san, otherwise the pin is on the tip of the foot. Ichi, ni, san. The other side. Ichi, ni, we lift the buttocks and the knee there, san, shi, go. We take back. So right now, we will stand and as earlier: soon as you get over it and hit back immediately. Ichi, knock it back, it sits in front and you go back. Ni, san, shi, go, roku. The other leg. Ichi, ni, san, though, go, roku, Yame. Then you can resume these exercises. I will not make ten thousand times, you can redo. Remember to work the back leg, and then to leg before thinking of the different phases of the back leg because these phases are then in, but much shorter. Then, it is now with the bag. The impact of Mawashi Geri, namely: either we strike with Koshi, that is to say the underside of the foot part there, we had seen it on Mae Geri. So either I strike with Koshi, or I’ll hit with the instep: Haisoku, with the top of the foot. Hitting the top of the foot, the impact zone is larger, but it’s still less evil. You scatter the energy, so that when you hit with Koshi, the area is very low and there it hurts. I hit with Koshi. So with the bottom of the foot. We must lift the fingers of the foot as much as possible. Someone knocked. It raises the toes, and knock. Come on, one or two. So now you hit the top of the foot. The foot strikes flat, like a big slap. So that was just to show you what happens on the bag. I want to talk a little bit of Mawashi Geri as fact in competition. In competition, it is completely different, the goal is not to kill the opponent. It’s the opposite, the goal is to go touch. So all we can win centimeters are welcome. So automatically we will try to gain height. And Mawashi Geri was able to do already when you turn: by rotating the foot a little further, and opening the hips as possible. Basically, it removes the strength we have, then, that keeps the pressure between the strike zone and soil, outright is opened and reaches as much as possible leg. The foot stretched, straight leg, in the end there: we have won a lot of centimeters. But loses efficiency. So for me, I am not a competitor, I have already done some competitions, but this is not my thing. So it is not I who will teach you the kick of competition, how to do it and everything. But I think what is needed is that you have to learn to do well in a traditional way, and then modify it to the competition since it is also important if you want to win a few centimeters. But, knowing the traditional back kick and know how to do well. Whether you do it less effectively in competition, it’s not embarrassing. This is normal, there are rules and you have to adapt to competition. But we must return to traditional to know what we do. Another thing, in competition, in general, it will be like this: your leg instead of the lift on the side, because there, as soon as you do that, the enemy will see it, so it can clog quickly. So then, what we will do: we will stand up in front as to Mae Geri: get up front. There, in general, your opponent will drop his guard not to take the Mae Geri. It will tend to lower his guard. We put the front, and only here, we will have our hip rotation. hip rotation and end up at the end of the number two phase pile to hit. Like this: you go ahead … knock. Before… we strike. So there it comes up there, the enemy guard down and then we rise above. But you will understand that once you just do that, it was still much less force than the leg from there and hit. So that is less efficient, it is not completely ineffective, but it is suitable for the competition. Well, that was just a parenthesis, but come back to the first basic exercises. So I go to prepare a video on stretching that will be more suitable for kicks, stretch all the muscles around the hip. So I make you this, I do not know exactly when. Go and look for efficiency in opening Mawashi Geri, even Yoko Geri, Geri Mae and stuff. Thank you and see you next time for the next video to karate-blog.net. I hope that the latter enjoyed it. I wish you all the best. Thank you and good bye.

  1. "C'est pas complètement inefficace " ?!?!!!
    Se déployer complètement, tourner complètement le pied d'appui, et armer directement vers l'avant, c'est la façon principale de faire en Taekwondo. C'est inefficace le Taekwondo ? Tu penses qu'un Mawashi Geri de Pascal Gentil dans la tronche par exemple, ça fait rien ? Ah, OK ! Les poids lourds mis KO de cette façon doivent pas être aussi costaud que toi, faut croire…

  2. Il n'y a pas lieu de comparer ce qui n'est pas comparable Il existe différentes façons de frapper en coup de pied circulaire selon les styles (mawashi geri en karaté, tolyo tchagui en taekwondo) et c'est tout, la puissance dépend du niveau du pratiquant. La trajectoire du pied peut être plus ou moins longue, mais la base reste la même : la rotation des hanches donne toujours la puissance du mouvement final en fouetté. Pour ma part en jkd on frappe avec la jambe avancée ^^

  3. Bravo c'est bien expliqué… Finalement moi qui ai fait des années de kung fu on m'a jamais rien appris de cette manière. bravo pour votre pédagogie.
    Après c'est sûr chaque partiquant va adapté selon sa souplesse et sa puissance ou vitesse

  4. Juste un truc c'est la position des mains qui doivent venir en protection des parties et visage et je crois que ça diffère pas mal selon les styles.

  5. Le taekwondo c'est un peu à l'encontre de ce que j'ai appris en kung fu, pas de coup de pied au dessus de la ceinture. Un pied en l'air c'est la vulnérabilité surtout quand c'est mal fait!!!

  6. @Bruce68 :
    1) Ton commentaire n'a aucun rapport avec le sujet, qui est la technique d'exécution d'un coup de pied de coté.
    2) Tu ne connais pas le Taekwondo, on y apprend tous types de frappe, pas seulement à la tête, comme dans tout art martial. Tu confond avec la version sportive qu'on voit aux JO. C'est comme si je réduisais le KungFu au Sanda, ou le Jujutsu au Judo.

  7. @Bruce68 (suite) :
    3) Tu ne connais pas le KungFu non plus, on y apprend une multitude de coups de pied à la tête, sauf si tu pratiques un style particulier, il faut préciser.

  8. @Bruce68 (suite et fin) :
    4) Comme tu le dis toi-même : "si c'est mal fait". L'entrainement, ça sert à ça. De plus, si tu n'en vois pas à l'entrainement, le jour où tu en prends un qui est bien exécuté, tu ne comprendras même pas ce qui t'arrive, tu le prendras pleine poire.

  9. Comme on peut le voir dans les compétitions multi-styles : les combattants qui tentent des coups de pied visage se font très rarement chopper la jambe (sauf par des combattants qui pratiquent le coup de pied visage et qui savent quoi faire), au mieux ils touchent, au pire le combat continue normalement.

  10. le visage est une partie fragile,de la machoire a la carotique.(on se muscle pas la machoire)
    un coup de pied explosif,qu il viennent d une ados ou d un footballeur a possibilité de kO.
    parcontre au corps,mettre la hanche donne plus de penetration au coup,c est un faite

  11. en fullcontact,le mawashi n est qu une extension du Hiza geri circulaire.
    donc avant d enseigner le mawashi,on inciste sur la forme du hiza geri.

    Pour l amplitude,il n y a pas de secret,il faut posé la jambe sur un meuble de plus en plus haut en passant par les 3 postion de hanche (mae geri,yoko,ushiro )

  12. "ça reste moins puissant qu'en restant connecté au niveau des hanches" UNE IDEE A REVOIR. En effet, tu peux observer que sur le travail au sac tu arrêtes ton mouvement, tu le bloque et tu n'ouvres pas ta hanche et surtout en faisant de cette manière là tu ne passes pas ta hanche. La façon de faire que tu présente permet de garder le contrôle de la jambe mais ne permet pas de déployer la force. En fait, dans karaté mae geri on fait avec la hanche et mawashi sans hanche!! c'est drôle

  13. En fait tu n'as pas compris qu'il y a une version technique traditionnelle (départ de la jambe sur le coté) et une version technique compétition (départ de la jambe devant); mais comme le Taekwondo est gangrené jusqu'à la moelle par la compétition vous n'apprenez plus la technique traditionnelle…

  14. N'ayant pas les moyens de prendre une licence de karaté, pratiquant déjà des échecs et de la boxe, je vous remercie beaucoup, ce sont les premiers cours vidéo que je vois ou on à l'impression d'avoir le coach en face de soir. (la décortication des mouvements etc….) et vos livres sur les échauffements me sont très utile, merci pour tout!

    Si je prends une licence au karaté au moins j'aurais déjà de bonnes bases!

  15. C'est pas une technique inefficace, mais affaiblie car tu perds la connexion avec le sol. La seule force qui reste en action c'est l'inertie du mouvement. De plus tu risques gros car si ton adversaire pare ton mawashi et frappe gedan, tu vas faire un joli salto.

    N'oublions pas que le taekwon do tel qu'on le connait est un taekwon do "déformé" par la compétition la recherche du geste impressionnant. L'accent a été mis sur les coups de pieds car c'est plus impressionnant.

  16. Moi le déplacement de hanche je l'ai toujours eu naturellement .
    Après chaque personne a ses points faibles et fort .
    Mais la souplesse aide beaucoup donc je conseille aux personne qui ont du mal a faire le coup de pied de faire des exercices de souplesse .
    Bonne chance

  17. je pense pas qu'il veuille dire que le taekwondo est innéficace. il explique seulement, que la manière de mettre un coup de pied en compétition et différent de celui utilisé en art martial

  18. Je ne suis pas d'accord avec l'affirmation de la fin. La deuxième forme de mawashi geri est plus efficace que la première du moment où l'on synchronise la montée du genou avec le pivot de la hanche et l'extension de la jambe d'appui .La première n'est pas efficace parce qu'on ne libère pas la hanche et on annonce la couleur à l'adversaire qui peut aisement anticiper un contre

  19. Merci professeur pour vos explications et la différence entre le mawashi de base et celui utilisé généralement pour la compétition.
