The reverse roundhouse kick, known in many systems as the Ushiro Mawashi Geri, and in some ninja systems as the Ushiro Kaze Geri, is a roundhouse strike that can cause systemic damage. It is directed at an opponent approaching from the rear.
...THIS LESSON CONTINUES AFTER THE MESSAGE BELOW...
This kick is very similar to the KAZE-MAWASHI GERI, except that it is applied against an opponent attacking from the rear. Spin backwards on one leg, raise the other leg, folded, and then open it out, driving the heel into the opponent's body. You must add both the force of the spin, and the muscular strength of the heavy thigh muscles as the leg unfolds. The heel drives into the organs of the foe to maximize systemic damage.
NON LETHAL USES OF THE USHIRO MAWASHI GERI
This reverse roundhouse kick can disable a foe if applied to the area of the intestines, in which case it causes serious discomfort.
THE USHIRO KAZE GERI FOR SERIOUS DAMAGE
The roundhouse kick can cause serious damage if it is applied to the spleen, liver or bladder, in which case it can cause death through internal bleeding or through widespread systemic infection.
CRUCIAL POINT TO REMEMBER
One crucial point to remember when using this or any other combat move, is never to strike just once. Strike repeatedly, again and again, until the opponent is visibly damaged. One blow may not cause enough damage to put the opponent down, but several blows in sequence, certainly can.
And now, please read and meditate upon...
The consummate warrior knows
that the battleground is an important component
As a battle commences;
Whether it be a battle of armies,
A single combat,
Or a combat
wherin a warrior faces many foes;
The wise combatant analyses his battleground at the very start
of the conflict.
He sees where he may advance, and
where he may retreat;
He checks the numbers of his enemies,
and possible areas where they may gain
Or where their allies
may wait in ambush.
All this is worked into the scheme
of his combat;
And as his blade works death
amidst his foes,
works the death
of their Strategy.
