Pinan Shodan (Heian Nidan) Pad Drill by Lee Taylor

Another great bunkai based pad drill from Lee Taylor. This clip was filmed at our recent joint seminar. Lee has a DVD available on pad drills for the whole of the Pinan / Heian series:


All the best,


This kata focus mitt drill deals with 5 motions found in Heian Shodan kata. The drill brings these motions together out of the normal order of the kata, showing how they can fit together after a pre-emptive strike where the pad holder also returns a strike and also uses pressure with the pads to facilitate movement to another angle from the striker. The main point of the drill is to move to an angle of advantage where further strikes can be delivered or follow up with additional techniques can be used. http://www.leetaylorkarate.co.uk/
