These are fundamental techniques which are core to Karate and assist in developing muscle memory, proper posture, strength, etc. Moreover, Kihon techniques are consider the "building blocks" to more advanced Karate techniques.
Basic Kihon techniques receive significant repetition in Karate schools. Moreover, they are practiced individually or with a partner.
