Authors Marutani and Igaki stand shoulder to shoulder with Japan’s great fighting men in upholding their country’s long and fearsome martial tradition. Marutani is a veteran of the Japanese National Karate Team — Igaki is the U.S. Karate Coach responsible for America's first gold medals in world level competition. This presentation, the first of its kind, gives an entirely different view of modern karate, showing it as a means of combat with competitive applications, rather than simply a sport. By demonstrating its direct connection with the martial arts of the past, this DVD cannot fail to change your view of competition karate for the better!
Includes: Preparation, exercises and stretching stances, basic techniques, drills for kicking, footwork, repitition training, basic and advanced combination techniques and competition strategy.
