'Cut the crap' was a request to you to stop the personal stuff.TANG SOO DO--DEFENSE STRIKE:
Some new poster was looking into TKD, another mentioned TSD. Go I YT'd the latter with combo.
The TSD Master calls this "Fighting Combo #1." Kihon karate presents this @ beginner level. Simple application strategy.
Note, the vid shows K-man's (cut-the-crap) application. It shoud be apparent I'm presenting a balanced view of both sides.... guess not.
The point is the strike follows on immediately on the block. Hence in the block-defense scenario, the exchange is presumably ended by the reverse punch in this straight forward depiction.
As to this technique, it simply isn't a block. It is a forearm strike followed by a reverse strike and if a video showing it breaking a board doesn't convince you of that then I don't know what would.
Cool, I have no issue with that. It is just not my scene.Well on the MMA, I like to think of karate working in that environment.... have posted on my support for same.
In time all practitioners should become proficient but if you just practise kihon you will just be a very proficient advanced beginner. There is no disrespect in this comment, just the plain truth. It is no wonder guys like Drop Bear and Hanzou get stuck into karate when people show kihon as advanced training.This isn't an ego battle. There's plenty a karate practitioner in my area including my school who feel other arts are too difficult to become proficient at. So we do a more basic karate style. Your response is disrespectful to people making practical choices.
I don't see block-breaks anywhere but I do see plenty of soto uchi, gyaku tsuki in basic kihon.EDIT: Note the TSD stylists in my vid are high ranking senior belts. I don't see block-breaks in the standard black-belt karate curriculum...
