2019 Spring Demonstration
Scroll down to see video clips of standing basics, kata, bunkai, kobudo (weapons), one-step fighting, and free-sparring. Children as young as five, through adult students participated. Here are a few clips from our Spring Demo.
At the beginning of every class, we do Standing Basics, which includes punches, blocks, and kicks.
Kata are detailed, choreographed patterns of movements. We start with basic katas, and as we progress, kata become more intricate and advanced. Our full list of kata can be found on our Curriculum page.
Bunkai literally means "analysis" or "disassembly." It is a term used in Japanese martial arts referring to process of analyzing kata and extracting fighting techniques from the movements of a kata.
We learn three different weapons, starting with bo, then sai, and finally kai bo. Our full list of Weapons kata can be found on our Curriculum page.
This is a choreographed set of attacks involving counters and take-downs. Included below are also clips of knife attacks and defense.
