Kyoshi's Technique of the Week

Technique of the Week (December 26th, 2005)

From Sensei Dale Adamson, San Dan
Mohawk Valley Karate Club

Tenshin no kamae

First I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and a safe holiday season. It is understandable that during the holidays you may not have time to train like you normally would. My suggestion is to stretch daily and try to do some kata during the week.

The technique of the week is Tenshin no kamae, sideward movement. This is found in Pinan V. The sideward movement, allows your opponent ‘s attack to pass by, giving on a second to prepare your attack. The technique is found in Master Nagamine’s book.
