Combat Shotokan 3 DVD Set by Tom Muzila
Basic sparring concepts and techniques are first addressed, such as how to take advantage of the first engagement of the fight. Follow-up techniques and combinations on how to overwhelm your opponent also are addressed, along with close-quarter combat techniques that can network over as basic self-defense principles. Traditionally, this is sometimes called torite in Japanese, or escaping techniques. Then toward the end, various techniques are taught and demonstrated on how to throw an opponent off by executing a strike and using the momentum of that strike to help throw him. In Japanese, this is sometimes referred to as nagawaza. If an individual practices these concepts and principles diligently, he or she will be trained to handle, control, and understand the full engagement of any fight.
