EAST LONDON JKA KARATE CLUB SPECIAL OPEN TRAINING SESSION
Saturday 7th September 2019
Sensei Ken Hori (5th Dan) kindly returned to the Club after our Summer Grading to run an excellent session today.
Sensei focused on Kihon basics, hip and core movement and control. Going back to basic blocks, kicks and punches in simple combinations, Sensei broke down each technique to display proper hip movement.
Low grades paired up practising these basic combinations, positioned knee to knee or toe to toe with their partner to avoid compromising their stance.
The High grade session was an extension of the basics, placing more emphasis on the application of Hikite, and contraction and expansion. Students in their groups of three would practice blocking & counter from attacks either side, trying to keep grounded. Students also paired up to concentrate on maintaining stances back and forth from zenkutsu dachi to kokutsu dachi.
Katas of the day were Heian Sandan and Jion applying the techniques we had learnt earlier.
A brilliant session, enjoyed by all and each of us walked away having learnt something new. Thank you Sensei Hori and Club.
