Within our Dojo, this shotokan kicking combination is first practiced at brown belt and is then used at every examination, up to black belt.
Starting from a left side fighting stance.
1. Front kick (mae geri)with the right leg, then a short step forward with the right leg.
2. Side thrust kick (yoko geri kekomi) with the left leg, then a short step forward with the left leg.
3. Round house kick (mawashi geri) with the right leg, then a short step forward with the right leg.
4. Spining back kick (ushiro geri) with the left leg, then stepping forward with the left leg and finishing in a left side fighting stance.
Throughout this kicking combination, try an keep kamae, try not to let your arms wave around as you kick. Keep the kicks flowing, rather than kicking in a robotic fashion.
All these shotokan techniques should be practiced slowly first, then once you are confident in the technique, timing and rhythm of the combination, you can practice at full speed and power.
