Non traditional pad work drills

Hi all

Pad work is one of the best training methods in karate, allows you to work on distance, timing, speed, precision and power. On last session we went through some of our drills, focus was on flowing combinations.

Kind regards

Hi Les,

Some superb drills that are very well executed. I’m full agreement about the utility of focus mitts / pads. The past master did not have access to modern kit, and I believe that is the only reason that we don’t have traditional focus mitt / pad drills. The good thing is, because of the work modern karateka are doing now, subsequent generations will :-)

All the best,

Hi Iain, I agree if they had modern equipment, they would use it :) Kind regards Les
