How to do a Yoko Tobi Geri or Jumping Side Kick

Yoko Tobi Geri

A YoKo Tobi Geri is a jumping side kick, on the main image you can see Sensei Claudia Gomez Gutierrez a third-degree Limalama Black belt demonstrating the technique. As you can see her kick is perfect. Keep in mind these recommendations:

  • Get closer to the target, bend both knees and as you jump execute your sidekick while the other leg is bent as in the picture.
  • Keeping your back straight to increase power
  • Eyes on the target
  • Hands in a fighting position
  • After you hit the target your back leg will be touch ground first, but always keep your hands up.
