He was indeed a pioneer in knockdown karate. My Sensei trained under him in the 1960-1970's before he went over to Ashihara and then Enshin...
Andy Hug was a great fighter! Osu!
Cool! Thanks for sharing.
I do a few things.
1.) Dynamic Stretching by Tom Kurz from his book Scientifically Stretching
2.) Kettlebell- Swings and Turkish Get ups. You...
I am wondering why your criteria is "most" traditional? Why not the best Karate you can find in your area? I would find the Sensei in your area...
Yes I wish him a well recovery!
The longer you do the more you are going to get out of it. I am at 6 years and I feel like I am barely scratching the surface of what is possible.
Too many but I will list a few..
Drunken Master II- Jackie Chan (the US version is not as good..)
Kuro Obi aka Black Belt
Way of the Dragon...
I also thought he was fantastic in Expendables 2 and if you have not seen it yet check out the film JCVD.
I think either way works. I do Enshin Karate and we use the two big knuckles.
I did take some Wing Chun/Jeet Kune do and they used the bottom 3....
That sounds great.
I have recently become interested in Eskrima/Arnis.
Do you know anyone good to learn from in Tucson AZ?
I do ENSHIN karate.
Yes we spar full contact but not at full power.
That is determined by the users.
Say me (Shodan) is sparring 1st Kyu...
They are okay but I prefer a hanging bag.
I would use Sand for sure. Its cheap at Home Depot and it will hold it better.
My upper back is very sore and I think I have a similar situation. I am gonna get a massage and try to relax better.
If you want an awesome book on total body strength and conditioning go to Ross Training.
Also there are Ashihara and Enshin Karate that came from Kyokushin but added some throwing techniques and emphasize Sabaki movement.
Yes a great movie!! One of the best movies on Martial arts. Another good one that is realistic like this is Sugata Sanshiro by Akira Kurosawa. It...
Not everyone in our dojo does but the guys that like to fight in tourneys do. We do chest/stomach/thigh and shin conditioning.
I tie it like I tie my shoes. Stays put for the most part and you can always double knot it if you have too. :)
Really cool book and anyone who is even remotely interested in the philosophy of Karate should read it.
Glad to see it!
Now keep training,not just for your next belt but for the rest of your life.
That is great!
Not only will it be good for your brain but the benefits to the body as well.
Karate is good for the mind,body and spirit.
I am sure you will do great!
Just stay focused but relaxed.
I started in Kyokushin and then moved to an Enshin dojo.
Overall I enjoy it alot. The Sabaki principle of strategy and position makes it...
For the most part yes.
Even Kyokushinkai is broken up into different groups. What matters more is if you can learn from the Sensei there and if...
Congrats! Keep it up!
Both Enshin and Ashihara Karate use more of a soft parry since you move to your opponents "blind" spot while countering.
See examples of it here....
Also if you have Netflix you can instant watch the whole season on your PC or Xbox360. :)
The main difference is in the adding of one sided modified Judo throws.
Other than that the strategy of the Sabaki system is very similar.
Yes I missed that part of his question. Thanks for correcting me Martin H. Osu!
