By Michael R. Berger

Keri-waza, or kicking techniques, comprise about half of the arsenal in karate. Perhaps of more importance, being that the legs are far superior in both strength and reach to the arms, neglecting the proper development of kicking can result only in a partial development of the art, and thus in obvious ultimate defeat. The proper use of kicking opens a full array of possibilities in both offensive and defensive maneuvers. When the entire body can be used with equal ease; when the techniques flow fluidly, effortlessly, and spontaneously, without the limitation of conscious thought…only then do we get a begin to understand the true nature of the art of karate.
