What areas did you see?
Take this for what it's worth (coming from a 4th kup )
A lot of the transition movements seem a bit 'off' - not bad, just not 'smooth'. On reviewing, much of that looks like it's attributable to the mats (and I'm much more used to seeing it with a definite sine wave - your 'progression' video had this too).
Foot position on the kicks - pressing and side piercing a bit flat (not enough emphasis on footsword) and snap kick looked more tippytoe than ball. All of that could be viewing the video on a phone...
There's lots of little tiny things I could possibly nitpick if I went through move by move - that's what I do to myself with my pattern practice and it's what I ask when people watch me - but is that actually what you want?
I'm not detracting from what is in essence a pretty solid performance though.
Please by all means be as nitpicky as you please. I always want to improve in anything I do martial arts related. Sidenote: I don't use sinewave.
Are you an ITF practitioner? if so I do want to know what the hand position and timing differences between us are. Thanks for commenting!
Yes, I'm ITF - but I'd classify myself firmly in the beginner category (I've only been practicing for 2 years). Which are you?
These aren't criticisms as such - take them more as observations on different interpretations
Patterns are kind of my 'thing' (after theory), and other interpretations I find really interesting.
From what I've seen, your hand positions are much closer to shotokan (particularly twin knifehand in your Yul-Gok for instance, your top hand is further forward, your front forearm is more vertical and closer to your face).
Other movements are like shotokan kata examples that I've seen as well - likely much down to no sine wave.
For timing, it's emphasised that everything finishes at once - using stepping forward into a hooking block as an example, the hand reaches target at the same instant your foot hits the ground into stance. With yours, it looks more like step, stance, hand. This is more obvious on your slow motion techniques.
I have sparring on the brain. I click the video and noticed that it wasn't sparring, then I reminded myself, that you didn't say it was sparring. lol.Today I competed in my first tournament since 2016. Here it is, hope you enjoy! I'm welcoming any feedback, comments, suggestions, etc. Thank you.
