Motobu Choki - 12 Two Person Drills

Is anybody  familiar with Motobu's two person kumite drills. I found one clip on youtube but, the angle is hard to see them clearly. Even if someone has written descriptions that would help or knows of another source you can get them that would be great. I want to incorporate the drills into my training.

Hi Michael,

I don't know what video you mean. I like this one and I hope its not the one you were refering to.


You should get a hold on Patrick McCarthy's "Karate My Art - Watashi no Karate Jutsu" which is an excelent compilation of Motobu related Information. Here you can find the description of those forms and photos at page 52ff.

I’m incorporating these drills into my own Tae Kwon-Do training at the moment. I feel it’s a step in the right direction for me and better than doing 3 step sparring or other variations

You can find Iain's Motobo inspired pad drill HERE  

If you subscribe to Iain's App there are instructional video's for Iain's take on all twelve of the drills and he has also just started posting Seinipo a kata he has created inspired by the 12 drills. Recommended!

Hoping this helps
