This is footage of a recent Zoom session I taught. We covered two functional kihon combinations. I had a wide range of participants in attendance so I broke the combinations down in chunks. I simplified the second combo to make it more linear when some students were having difficulty. Combo #1 Kizami Zuki/Gyaku Zuki/Kage Zuki/Enpi Uchi (Jab/Cross/Hook/Elbow) Combo #2 (as taught by Iain Abernethy at his 2019 Residential) Nagashi zuki/Gyaku Zuki/Oi Zuki (Flowing Punch/Reverse Punch/Stepping Punch). It is my philosophy that much of today's Shotokan kihon is not functional. It does not teach us to move with a natural flow.
