Hangetsu / Seishan Pad Drill

This video shows a pad drill for the end of Hangetsu / Seishan kata. The crescent kick drops the enemy’s head for the punch. The downward double palm heel is then used should the enemy try to tackle from the position they are now in. To put contextualise the sequence, we enter with a hook, cover and pin, and then a redirection of the arm.  The cover and pin are similar to what we see in Motobu’s 1st drill and Wado-Ryu’s Kihon Gumite No. 10. We conclude the drill by kicking the enemy’s ribs and escaping.

All the best,

Iain
