Kyoshi's Technique of the Week

July 15th 2012

From Sensei Emiliano Mazlen San-Dan

Shihan, Boston Chinatown Ueshiro Shorin-Ryu Karate Club

Onegai-shimasu Hanshi, Kyoshi, Sensei and Fellow Deshi,

Keep the fist moving toward the target

We must step first, then punch. However, in order to achieve maximum power
once we have drilled in that dynamic we need to not have a lengthy pause
between stepping and punching. Instead of having a lengthy pause after stepping,
the punch is instantly triggered upon establishing foundation. Hanshi has described this
using the phrase “keep the fist moving toward the target.”

Domo arigato gozaimasu Hanshi.

Domo arigato gozaimasu to all.
