Simple Kihon Pad Drill

Hello,

I'm working my beginners up to stringing kihon together in simple combative combinations. Here's a basic pad drill we've worked this week, and we've had a great time practicing it. Head butt, knee strikes, elbow strikes, and front kick. Enjoy!

Best,

David

Nice drill David! Focus mitts are a great bit of kit. As karateka we should use them as karateka (not as boxers) and hence we need to include headbutts, knees, openhand strikes, elbows, etc.

Here’s a similar one we use, but it’s aimed at more advanced practitioners.

All the best,

Iain

Iain,

I really like the striking combo at the end of your drill. I think I'll be swiping that bit of sick smashing. Lol. Thanks!!
