This semester in my college Physical Education Studies in Karate class, we are exploring applications from Pinan Nidan/Heian Shodan. In this video, we examine the opening sequence as a possible pre-emptive strike and takedown. This video shows a basic drill and an accompanying pad drill. Remember, this is a new set of students who have never trained before. They are doing really well, and we are having a fun time throwing each other around!
Note: I'm 6'1" (1.854 meters) and my uke is significantly taller than I am. This will be a fun semester trying these techniques on a much larger enemy!!
