The following karate class was broadcast from the Lake Forest Shotokan Dojo with David Lechuga leading.
Brigette’s notes from watching practice today.
Manfred was guest instructor and he shared the distinctions of how to punch in kibadachi when rotating from front stance to punching in front ending in kibadachi.
It’s a core move.
We are not sandwiched into 2 pieces of plexiglass.
Then he lead tekki Shodan.
Rotating leg slapping against the inner thigh, from 40 years ago. But the book says thrust. Might be a stomp there. Manfred said he’s been doing that since 1979.
Text book says to thrust the leg down.
The rotation on the leg is bad for the hip. Pick knee up instead of twisting leg it’s kind of better. Looks like Jutte. Typical Chinese move. Lifting the leg and thrusting down is avoiding someones kick or leg attack. Showing off the knee can go up to the shoulder.
10:18 Manfred talks about Mr. Ohshima and being warned by him. Do not copy what they are doing on the internet.
10:25 Manfred talks about why he narrowed his stance after getting a comment from Mr. Ohshima.
We are honestly searching for kime. Some moves are show and some moves are real. How to turn a kata practice into a duel.
The videos can be viewed without charge.
