In kanku Sho, there is a 2nd jump. I was this question by some students as what this could mean. I can understand the 1st jump as I am kind of upright when I attempt it, but this one has me leaning over in the first place beofre I do the spinning jump and to try and land on both my hands and feet in a 'sprawl' position.
It is an the 1min 21 sec mark.
After the jump and land I am supposed to spring back up again and do a 'lower knife hand strike' - shuto.
I can work out the foot to hand position if I was upright but i am not too sure on this one as I am leaning over.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
is the leaning over just for making the kata look good?!!!! or does it have a purpose?
