Another Motobu Inspired Pad Drill

In this video we look at a pad drill inspired by the two-person drills of Choki Motobu (1870–1944). Those familiar with his drills will recognise which elements we are making use of. Additionally, we can also see Motobu’s expressed combative concepts in play i.e. “Always strike from where your hand is in that moment”, “Blocking with one hand a striking with the other is not true martial arts”, etc.

If you’d like to see my take on Motobu’s drills, they are explained in my app (along with a breakdown of a kata I created to encapsulate them):

I hope you enjoy the video!

All the best,
