Goju-Ryu Ippon Kumite

This page provides details for Goju-Ryu Ippon Kumite. These are one-step sparring techniques used in Goju-Ryu Karate. One-step sparring is a training tool used to teach basic kumite and self-defense techniques. These tend to be pre-arranged techniques where the attacker strikes with a hand and/or foot technique and the defender blocks and/or counterattacks.

According to The English Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Association, Ippon Kumite consists of "single attacks with a basic block and counter punch from zenkutsu dachi. The attacks are jodan oi-tsuki, chudan oi-tsuki, mae-geri and mawashi-geri".
