An Introduction to Kakie/Kakidi

Hello, everyone!

This week, we take a quick look at a training method called kakie (or sometimes kakidi), meaning crossed or hooked hands, and how it can be used to develop tactile sensitivity and work in a variety of techniques in a manner that incorporates your opponent's resistance. Most people associate this practice with Naha-Te styles, like Goju-Ryu, but it is also present in Shuri-Te and Tomari-Te systems, not to mention various Chinese and Indochinese arts.

Very nice, we use it too in our modern Karate :)

Kind regards

I like it! I’ll share that one with the lists over the weekend. It’s a very good presentation that succinctly covers a lot of points.

All the best,

Thank you, both! It is a tough balance to fit the concepts of this type of training into a short video :P.
