Hello and welcome. I’m Bruno Bandelier, the Karate teacher of the net. And today we’ll talk, “Kumite”. So it is quite rare to talk Kumite on karate-blog.net, because from the beginning in fact, karate-blog.net, I created to allow you to review at home. And often at home, you are alone. So when you are alone, you can hardly lead you to the fighting. The “Kumite” is fighting. In fact, “Kumite”, that means: exchanging hands. That is when we exchange hands. “Te” is hand and “Kumi” I think it’s exchanging hands. So this is actually the fighting, the confrontation between two people. So, be aware that kumite were not there originally. Master Funakoshi denied there fighting. In any case, the type of fights: competition, so-called “Jiyu Kumite” which is free fights. We’ll see, we … In fact, here, the training, the kumite. It has several types of fights. You conventional combat, called “Kihon Kumite” basic combat, which in fact will allow to work with a partner, by having this … Compared to work Kihon classic, and there, with a partner, the concept we will add “timing” since working in pairs, the concept of distance, and then also the concept of courtesy, “fair play”. We work with a partner, so we do not do anything. We must have absolute control, I have no right to hit him in. Otherwise, we do not work for long. So that, it will be the Kihon Kumite. Kihon Kumite, it will be called: conventional kumite, where in fact, there are conventions. Which means : well every time when I’m going to attack, he will know … After all depends on the level, but now, he will know what level I’ll attack, what technique I’ll do. Here, everything will be determined in advance. And as and evolve the level of each, we will remove the As, conventions, to arrive slowly towards the “Jiyu Kumite” which is free fighting. Where there, there is no rule apart … Finally, when I say there is no rule … apart we must still check. If we are free … fight, I go, I have no right to hit him, I have to control. I remake you also a video later on control, because I see sometimes on the internet videos that make me cringe hair over it. But hey, it was not the subject of this video. But I will ever be in you, soon. So… So I said: Kumite is fairly recent. It is Japanese university, from World War II, who really developed this aspect of Kumite, because originally, in the traditional Karate, especially one worked, everything Kihon, Kata … In fact, it was even, almost as Katas. It was truly a labor of self defense, to learn to defend themselves, but not to compete with each other, even if… I guess when you see some written, although some people were duels to compete, but it was not planned in the drive to compete. So the different kumite we will find, we’ll see … Come on, Alexander, here. We will see what is called: the “Gohon Kumite”. So quickly, I show you. I do not know if there will be enough room. You stand there, you go from there. The “Gohon Kumite”. Well, Alexander, I told you, is not Karateka. So excuse him if these techniques sometimes they are not nickels. Well, he does everything he can. But that’s not bad. You attack me in the face, and then we’ll do five steps. So Gohon Kumite not five. So, go ahead! I takes a step back. Second, then, you see, if I do not move, I take it. He advances, he argues, he says. Go ahead ! Advanced. Second, third, fourth, five. So normally there are five steps, but there was not enough room in the Dojo, but here goes. The attack is not five. So what does it allow to do? At the training level, you can these five steps, change the pace, at progressively. Initially, you do: attack, two attacks, three attacks, trying systematically … first … Trying systematically, then the second, to stay, then, one that moves back, I am Uke, to not… not to go before him. You really whether it triggers. Here, it triggers, I block. Okay ? We try to stay as long as possible. – Give me your arm, advancing. – We try to stay as long as possible, the technique he has done. There he attacks me, the second, one, I keep in touch as long as possible, for the second block. Okay ? I’m in the timing. And we also learn the distance, because when he attacks me, you see, as there is someone, it’s not like when I work in a vacuum. I am forced to pay attention to the distance. Him, he must think about it, because if it stops there, it is useless. If I, if I do not block, I take it. This must … This notion of timing and distance is important. And then, as I also told you of a notion of fair play, because we must remain courteous: people greet before, we salute in the end. And all along, it must remain courteous. So the work Gohon Kumite, in general, it is a work that is more for beginners, that really allows work timing, distance, and really make the step between Kihon we usually do, and there, Kihon, but with a partner. Then, as you can be, This work Gohon Kumite: accelerate, go faster and faster. Change the pace example: one, one, two, three, four, or one, two, three, four, or one, two, three, four, five. You see ? So in the end, finally … two well-trained people, at some level, may: … they are the five techniques, and the last technical, I have not shown you because while ago, we did not. So when we get to the fifth technique, Here, you attack me, Uke is a cons. Then the cons, if for example I am, there I fell a lot, I even fell too, try to stay on the partner. There, if I do that, that’s not good. You really have me back. Okay ? So there, the concept of distance is really important, if there, I do that, I will not touch. From there, and, I have to adapt my distance. There I fell a bit in relation to it, if I want to counter it, I have come. The ideal would have been – again the last there – The ideal would be that I fell a little less, so as to be on him. OK ? So all that, it is worked by two: the notion of timing and distance. And working on five steps. Then you will have the Sanbon Kumite, which will be on three steps. There, it is exactly the same, but not three. So there we should be able to. In three steps, so you attack me. One two Three, and four I cons. Okay ? So, as you, the same way, forgiveness. Gradually, as we will evolve in learning, we will level up, we will become more and more … Finally, we will master better and better this kind of work. We will be able to accelerate, change the pace, add techniques. Here, it was really, basic techniques: Oi Zuki, Jodan Age Uke. Then we can also imagine that Tori makes Mae Geri, Geri Mae did once, when Oi Zuki. You see, we can change. And Uke must adapt, it must adapt its defense techniques. In general, this work then: Gohon and Sanbon Kumite, the rules are set by the teacher. Okay ? So, if you want to work at home, you need a partner. So I remake you videos to explain you, how to work alone this kind of work. Even if we did not all, but … We can still work a little lonely, but… I am lost, suddenly … Well, anyway. So you repeat here. Being told that it is to cut, that one. It is not possible ! The Sanbon Kumite … Anyway … I continue. So that was the Sanbon Kumite, we Gohon and Sanbon Kumite that are really basic work, but we can also adapt with Karatékas … advanced Karatékas, because, as you must really, remove more and more conventions, and then work harder and faster, work more and more his timing on everything. And here we evolve like that. Then we will have what is called: “Kihon Ippon Kumite” or “Ippon Kumite” forgiveness. The Ippon Kumite is the same, but on a step. He attacks me, one, two. That’s the Ippon Kumite. After, there will be the “Kihon Ippon Kumite”, where there I leave in the position hachiji Dachi. – You, you do the same, here. – And I’m leaving that position. One. Two. That’s what you’re going to make the passage of the first Dan. Check the resolution of the first Dan to see the techniques that will be. It’s fairly simple techniques. And then I do it again you videos to explain the Kihon Ippon Kumite for passage of Dan, to succeed more easily. So now, there are different Sanbon … Sanbon, forgiveness, Gohon Kumite Sanbon Kumite, Kihon Ippon Kumite. Ippon Kumite, then there is the Jiyu Kumite which is: free fighting. But first, there’s the “Jiyu Ippon Kumite” yet. So, there is a no, but we will try to do a little. But basically, it’s the same technique, but in fact it is not quite the same, that is: we’re fighting position. But we will not show it to you because with Alexander, it will not go. In fact, it is a fighting stance, and there as free fight, I know that must make me an attack, I know what it must attack. You see ? It remains in conventional combat, but cons, I do not know when he will attack. So here we are really fighting position. And there, he attacks and I against. Okay? So that, it can … This is really a work a step further in progress in terms of level in Karate. So now, it was just for you, to make the connection between … Finally, to explain a little Kumite what was in combat. Then there is the Jiyu Kumite where there we made free fights. We always with absolute control, but it is free fights. So I will continue after this video, for… I will then re, videos for each technique: Sanbon Kumite, Kihon Ippon Kumite and everything, so you can move forward.
