Gedan Mawashi Geri — Lower Roundhouse Kick

Citizen Schools and the H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts Program's students learned how to execute a Lower Roundhouse Kick, "Gedan Mawashi Geri".

"Gedan" means Lower in English.
"Mawashi" means Round in English.
"Geri" means Kick in English.

The students learned the importance of pivoting on the supporting leg to add power to the kicking leg as well as preventing the supporting leg's knee from being stressed. In addition, they learned the proper distance, "Mawai" in Japanese, from which to execute the kick; they also learned that they should strike with the shin, "Sune" in Japanese.
