Kizami Zuki – Jabbing Punch


This is a punch executed with the leading arm without moving at all, you are on a Sparring stance or Zentukso Dachi and just move your leading hand to punch and reach the target.

Kizami Zuki can be used in Kumite in many ways:

  • You can use it to stop your opponent just with the punch as he tries to get close to you to attack.
  • You can also use it to create distance.
  • You can use it to prepare and open a target for a second punch with the other arm.


  • Always keep a strong stance with Kizami Zuki and any other stance.
  • Keep your back straight and never lean forward when punching.
  • Keep your eyes on your opponent and be ready for a second technique.
