Jitsu teaches a variety of kicks for striking attackers or knocking them over. Since there is a great likelihood that a spectacular high kick will result in you falling over in a real-life situation, most Jitsu kicks are delivered at waist-height or below.

There are four common kicks in Jitsu:

  1. the front (mai-geri)
  2. side (yoko-geri)
  3. roundhouse (maewashi-geri) and
  4. rear kicks (ushiro-geri)
