Photo Friday: Roundhouse Kick

The only photo opportunity I was able to make was graduation night at the Academy of Okinawan Karate this evening, and I captured a shot of one of the little guys I work with frequently at the dojo I train at.

High Roundhouse


I a perfect world I’d have backed off a bit and not cut off his foot, but I was shooting with a 50mm prime, was backed up to a wall, and he was standing fairly close. The main reason I like it, though, is this little guy is throwing a nice roundhouse kick to head level. For a kid his age, who just learned the kick, this is pretty impressive.

Probably not by coincidence, he’s also one of the more attentive and conscientious kids in class. Good job, kid, keep up the great work.
