Does what it says on the tin – how to do Geki Sai Dai Ichi in a straight line! This training tool teaches bunkai, distancing (maai), sticking close to a partner (muchimi) and fighting spirit when practiced at full speed.
We also briefly discuss ude tanden (conditioning). It is also a helpful tool for introducing beginners to fighting, and working up to randori. Learn the kata sequence, the attacker’s sequence, and the pros and cons of doing this particular exercise. Great when paired with our video on corridor karate!
Following our Geki Sai Dai Ichi video, we get stuck into the details of Geki Sai Dai Ni, working on stances, hands, posture and technical differences between Goju schools.
Ideal for beginners who want to better understand the kata, as well as seniors looking to add polish to their kata. Instructors will find handy teaching tips, especially when teaching the kata to children.
Please like and subscribe for new videos every Friday at 2pm CAT, and share your ideas for teaching and learning this kata with us in the comments!
