Instructions for Wado-Ryu Kihon Kumite (1-10)

This page provides details for the 10 Kihon Kumite used in Wado-Ryu Karate. Kihon is a Japanese term meaning "basics". The term is used to refer to the basic techniques that are taught and practiced as the foundation of most Japanese martial arts. Moreover, in Kumite (sparring), students learn Kihon techniques as entry-level training before progressing to more advanced Ju Yi Kumite (free-style training).

According to Wikipedia, "The practice and mastery of kihon is essential to all advanced training, and includes the practice of correct body form and breathing, while practicing basics such as stances, punches, kicks, blocks, and thrusts… Kihon is not only practicing of techniques, it is also for budōka - fostering the correct spirit and attitude at all times".
