It makes you think back to the karate... Why is there so much stoppage? Block, wait, strike, stop, strike, stop...it's very stilted.
It makes you think back to the karate... Why is there so much stoppage? Block, wait, strike, stop, strike, stop...it's very stilted. Was this stoppage, often thought of as the 1 punch kill, intentional or some kind of miscommunication, or was something left out intentionally? It is a stark difference in both training and thinking of what it means to attack to adapt and continue..
My question is why the martial arts got rigid after leaving China and arriving in other lands.
Depends on who is performing. I've seen plenty of robotic performances over the years. I'm sure we all have.I dunno... you don't see any stop-bolck -wait-strike in Seisan kata and bunkai.
From my experience with my instructor, yes. And those transitions are a bitch when they are happening to you.I suspect the shotokai folks might focus more on the transitions between the moves.
"Kata must be done with movements that are full of vital energy, not merely movements".
