Instructions for Wado-Ryu Kihon 4

After bowing, the attacker takes one step forward and the defender takes one step backward.

  • Attacker (Torre)
  1. Hidari Zenkutsu-dachi (Left basic stance)
  2. Lunge forward with Hidari Tsukkomi Jodan (Left head height punch)
  3. Sliding forward, still in Hidari Zenkutsu-dachi (Left basic stance), Migi Gyakuzuki Jodan (Right head height reverse punch)
  • Defender (Uke)
  1. Migi Zenkutsu-dachi (Right basic stance)
  2. Slide to the left and cover attack with Migi Nagashi Soto-uke (Right middle block) to avoid punch
  3. Twist your hips bringing the right leg back slightly, and block the punch with a Nagashi Shuto Uchiuke (Sweeping open hand block) in Neko Ashi-Dachi (Cat stance)
  4. Move the right leg forward and strike with Migi Ippon-Ken (Right one knuckle punch) to the armpit and simultaneously strike the elbow with Shutuke (Open hand block/strike)
  • Notes
  1. In this case Shutuke (open hand block) is not used as a block but as a strike.
  2. When practicing this kihon do not strike the elbow with full force (Defender stage 3) as this can cause permanent ligament damage if practiced repeatedly
