On behalf of Expert Village, my name is Tony
Capraro, sensei of Kyokushin Karate, Without Limits, Inc., 1652 Richmond Avenue, Staten
Island, New York. We are here today to present to you basic Kyokushin technique. We’re going
to go over and demonstrate some of the basic fighting stances in Kyokushin karate, knock
down karate, a little different from other styles of karate. We step forward, both fists
50-50 right in front of your face. Stance number one. On a defensive posture. Stance
number two, hands are open. Fight position, right over the face. Now we have a slight
movement, little skippy movement back and forth. Back and forth like this, then back.
Now, we’re just going to snap right into basic fighting position. Left foot forward with
a key eye. And back. Now we’re going to go into high position, fighting position. And
back. Now, regular position again. And back.
