Shuto and Nukite Training Drill (video)

This video was taken at a seminar I taught in Essex in October 2011. We were looking at techniques and drills from Kushanku / Kanku-Dai kata. This is one drill that can be used to practise the applications for Shuto-Uke (“knife hand block”) and Nukite (spear hand). The idea is to get the key variations drilled in a small amount of training time. I hope you enjoy working the drill!

My partner in the clip is Paul Newman of Kernow Karate in Chelmsford. Paul is one of the few people who holds both a dan grade with me and a full instructor qualification. A good guy who I highly recommend.

I’ll be back with more videos soon!

All the best,
