A note on Gedan Kangi

As opposed to the first one, be more aggressive with this one and do not allow your opponent to enter. Try to keep him on the back foot.
After the first ashibarai, pop the left foot to the side so to accelerate the strike to kasumi, like a flash, to create surprise. Ba-bang!
For now, hit last kasumi with a normal step but then gradually work into a switch step (suriashi) and always remember to leap away to safety.
