Kyoshi's Technique of the Week


Technique of the Week (February 21st, 2005)

-------------------------------------------------------------- 

Breathe!

It is a critical aspect of karate and of life. The karateka should inhale on the block and exhale on strike. This is applicable during kata and kumite. We always inhale strength and exhale weakness. Without the proper breathing technique both the karate and the karateka will diminish in vitality.

Arigato,
