"Three-Point Landing," san-ten chakuchi 三点着地 (Cool Jumping Pose)

In anime, a "three-point landing," in Japanese: san-ten chakuchi 三点着地, refers to a pose taken when landing from a high fall, typically with one foot, one knee, and one hand on the floor, making it three points of contact.

The three-point landing is often used by heroes making a dramatic entrance in a scene.
