Fukyugata Ich Solo Pad Drill Part 1

In previous videos, I demonstrated how to solo train some applications for Fukyugata Ich in shadow boxing and heavy bag drills. However, not everyone has a heavy bag. Inspired by solo pad drills from Lee Morrison and Iain Abernethy, here is the first video in a six-part series on how to practice a bunkai application drill for the opening sequence of Fukyugata Ich using solo pad training. Also, as dojos begin to open up, many states and regions around the world require students to maintain physical distancing within the dojo, which means no partner training. Partners cannot even hold target mitts, because physical distancing cannot be maintained. However, individual students can use these types of solo pad training drills in the dojo, thus getting in some important impact training as well as kata and kihon practice.

Awesome video David! Very innovative and there’s plenty of good inspiration in there. Even if people don’t do that specific kata, the sequence is common to many others. Thanks for posting!

All the best,
