From Sensei Chris Barnes Shihan- Bushi
Getting The Knee Up !!!
Last night a student was remarking on how high Hanshi,
Yes, if we don't we are just kicking a football of the tee.
And fatal is finite.
With the knee up you are also covering the chest for reverse punch chamber.
Also look at page 80 in The Essence of Okinawan Karate,
This technique is most effective if thoroughly practiced until
"Let's get the knee up this week to a spontaneous reflex."
Arigato Barnes Sensei.
