Pinan / Heian Yodan Pad Drills from Simon OBrian

Hi All,

Fellow BCA Karate Instructor Simon O’Brien shared these pad drill videos with me. I encouraged Simon to put the drills on YouTube because I know you’ll really like them!

The videos cover gripping uses of the “lower X-block” and the following “outer block” from Pinan / Heian Yodan, with various impact and grappling techniques at either end (some for fighting, some for self-protection).


All the best,


PS Check out the rest of Simon’s videos HERE

Some really nice stuff there, great amalgamation of pad and close quarter grappling work. I love drills like that

Good stuff!

I'll be borrowing a couple of those: my teenage pad whackers will love them.
