At Karatepraxis we do consider Kata as the book of tricks for our martial art. From our point of view every motion in Kata has got a defending or attacking character. This video shows the application of the first few techniques in the Kata Empi. This sequence contains several important application and fighting rules. Starting with: Leave the line of fire, hikite-hands are for pulling, open hands are for grabbing and last but not least: (body-logic) means paying attention to the expected physical reaction after a Strike or a kick. We do believe that every Kata is a complete defending and fighting system. All we need to do is to take a closer look!
