Shotokan Kumite (Sparring) Techniques & Drills
This page will help you learn the kumite (sparring) techniques used in Shotokan Karate. Kumite teaches students how to effectively utilize the basic elements of Karate (i.e. kicks, punches and blocks) in self-defense situations. In Shotokan Karate, kumite ranges from basic introductory drills (where students memorize specific attacks and defenses) to free style sparring (where students conduct "live" sparring matches).
