For the first time within the grading syllabus, the more advanced Back Kick (USHIRO GERI) is now included. Even though it is more difficult to perform than any previously taught kick, a high level of proficiency is expected in order for it to meet the same standard as the rest of the grade. For many candidates Ushiro Geri causes the most problems within this grading mainly due to: losing one's balance, over rotating, kicking diagonally to the rear rather than straight back, and failing to adopt a low center of gravity as one moves into the midway position. Hence the kick is also made more difficult due to it being performed at the end of the Kihon section, so fatigue will also effect the performance unless one has practiced countless repetitions during training sessions.
