Hi to everyone, which in your opinion the application of shotokan's kokutsu dachi ?
How can you use it o real self defense o Ju kumite?
Ok many say none application!!! On okinawa karate there aren't kokutsu dachi, but neko ashi dachi, ok but on kung fu there is the same stance called SAN CHI PU O FOR SIX STANCE ECC. and all know the karate come from the kung fu. Kokutsu dachi is my favourite stances because maybe I understood how use it, my sensei many years ago told me and I found the same thing on a book but I am nobody, I'd like your opinion!
Hi to everyone this is my first post here, I read the Ian's article about the applications of blocks, he say who there are not block on okinawa karate, and they are annaquate tecniche for learning karate to japanese scholar. Now my question is if there are not block in karate
1- How defended themselves by the punch and the kick the ancient karateka without use blocks?
2- Why okinawa style like Matsumura Shorin ryu , and Matsubayashi Shōrin-ryū use the same blocks of shotokan, like you can see from this video?
More good videos from Simon O'Brien. In this one we have a pad work combination using Funakoshi’s Byobudaoshi and Ude-Wa throws (more commonly known as an outer reaping throw and double leg takedown). The videos also show Simon’s son using these methods effectively in BJJ competition. Enjoy!
