Hello everyone and welcome to this new video on karate-blog.net, the Karate clear and net. So today is a bit special since video this is the first video that we will make the Katas. So this is the first Kata you’ll appendre “Taikyoku Shodan”. Before you talk about Taikyoku Shodan, I’ll talk a little bit of Katas. Katas are sequences. A little bit in all directions: to the right, to the left. Exterior, someone who does not practice Karate will feel that it is an imaginary fight. Now this is not an imaginary battle. You have to really make a fight. By cons, your opponents are imaginary. So you will see opponents who attack you, certain situations, all that … and you do your Kata as a fight. You really have your heart and mind are in the same condition as when you make a fight. Its very important. Here. So kata, be aware that the Katas allowed to transmit karate for ages, in fact, from generation to generation. There are hundreds of years, Karate, we did not write in books or videos as I’m doing now. Karate, it was transmitted from Master to student through the Katas. So this is what has actually transmit karate. Besides kata, you will see that there are many Kata. As to your changes in your karate, you will learn more Katas complicated increasingly techniques; different Katas that bring you different things. These Kata, Kata each will forge your karate and will allow you to progress and climb As in every Kata, marches to a Karate more and more, increasingly open, increasingly powerful. Here. We will not go further. We will now speak of Kata Taikyoku: Taikyoku Shodan. So there are six kata Taikyoku. The first three were invented, it seems, by Master Funakoshi. It is not sure that his son is not behind. But hey, that it was invented by Master Funakoshi. A priori, in a very educational purpose since they are really very simple. So the Taikyoku were made for beginners, so they can learn. However, everyone agrees that Taikyoku are fine for the experts. that can return over and can go back to basics. Here. Taikyoku means “Great All” or the first cause. I was looking for the word “The Great All or the First Cause.” And so, back permanently on Taikyoku to improve his basic karate. It’s really great. So here is. Us, we will learn Taikyoku. I’ll do it once face. Here, I’ll do it again back to show you a little bit. Then I would you education for all rotations because often where we have problems. This is often where the beginners, they do not collide. You should know that the Taikyoku Shodan, it’s not complicated. There is only one position: zenkutsu Dachi. So here you can go see the video on zenkutsu Dachi. And there is a blockage: Gedan Barai. Like, you can go see the video of Gedan Barai. And there is a Oi Zuki Chudan attack at the plexus and stomach. There, like, you can go watch the video Oi Zuki. So very simple techniques. So in general, beginners have no problems at all with these techniques. Where are the problems? It will be for turning. Which way should I go? Do I have to go right? Do I have to go to the left? So this is over we’ll work hard. I give you the Kata once before, once back and then working. always start a Kata, it turns Yoi. Well, to begin Kata. Musubi Dachi. Hello. Taikyoku Shodan There they Announces Kata. We return Yoi. And there, then, that means I’m ready to go. Normally within two three seconds, you start the Kata. I start again. Taikyoku Shodan You did see. It is very simple. The Embusen Kata. That is to say, the Kata of the diagram is a big “I”. I have a base, high straight and a base above. You see, on the ground, I draw a large “I”, a capital “I”. It is very simple. you go to one side: Gedan Barai, Oi Zuki. On the other side: Gedan Barai and Oi Zuki you renevez here: Gedan Barai, three Oi Zuki. Right, left, right with Kiai here. You rotate, Gedan Barai, Oi Zuki there. Gedan Barai, Oi Zuki there. You return to your line. you do the opposite path: Gedan Barai, one, two, three, Oi Zuki We did three quarters of a turn, Gedan Barai, Oi Zuki and there. Gedan Barai, Oi Zuki, there, and come back in the middle. In principle, you see. It is very simple. I’ll do it once upside for your video you have it both ways, if you want to freeze frames and all … then we work. go ahead Taikyoku Shodan Here. You did see. What I was saying, what I explained to you: the basic techniques are very simple. What I want to do. We’ll put it in the mirror. That is to say that you will work like me. So I’m going to get back to you for you to work like me. Then the As I’ll explain a little more detail how it goes. We do it once and then made full education on rotations. go ahead Yoi You put yourself at your screen and you do the same. You need a little space in front of you. go ahead Yoi Musubi Dachi We salute. Kata is announced. Taikyoku Shodan Yoi So here we go left. It pivots on the right leg. left Gedan Barai We advance, Oi Zuki at Chudan. Now I turn behind keeping in part my arm Gedan Barai Oi Zuki I come across the line: Gedan Barai Oi Zuki One, and three rows. I now pivots on the leg heel forward Gedan Barai Oi Zuki Gedan Barai Oi Zuki Now I come back. So I’m going back on the great line: Gedan Barai Oi Zuki Two and the third with the Kiai. I re-rotates the leg before: a two a two And I come back in the middle Yoi Normally, you should go back to where you started from. Then soon after, one is a little quirky, it’s not one millimeter either. Do not take too much the head with it. The idea if you find yourself there in the end, it’s not good at all. You have to get from where you left. So, I explain to you. I’m back like this. Initially, no problem Gedan Barai Oi Zuki That you do not have too much concern. What not to do it is. We must turn to. I want to go over there, I turn to face there. It is necessary that my hips are facing since it is Gedan Barai, but Hanmi. I have spread my feet like that. I have to look there. My opponent is out there. I’m here. I attack my opponent is there and I turn to him. I do not do just that. No, I turn to him. I have a struggle to do here. Here. Now I’ll have a fight behind. Okay. So it must be right from the start, I’m going there and knock. Now you’re going to hurt? It is on all rotations. I explain to you. There are only two places that annoy you. Finally, there are two questions Is over my big “I”, I am on a small side, at the end of the short sides, then the top or at the end of long straights? If you are at the end of the short sides, you must remember one thing: the end of the short sides you must think of one thing: I look over the arm is stretched. I just Oi Zuki. I look out over the arm and that’s that arm, the forearm and leg before I’ll take back. Okay. So I pivoted on the back leg. That one, I do not have the right to bring it like that. That one, I will rotate it. I do this and I pivoted above the sieve. here a two I’m at the end of a short side. I go because you can not see my feet. I’m at the end of a short side. So the same principle, I will rotate on the back leg. I go towards my arm is stretched and in the direction of the straight. Okay It’s simple. When one is at the end of a short side, we remember, I turn over the arm is outstretched, and I take before my leg and my arm before either behind or to the left, when I have to go to the straight. Now second response. You’re at the end of a short side, you are at the end of the straight. I’m at the end of the straight. There, I almost do the opposite. Basically, when I’m at the end of the straight, I do not look over my arm is stretched, I’ll look at the other side. I do not take my arm and my leg before before, but on the contrary, my back and my arm back leg. Okay. There, I will rotate and look around the room. In fact, my goal is to come here, but going through here. So I do that and I pivoted on the front leg. I do that. I take my arm back and my back leg, and I bring them here. Okay. I shoot enough. It is to be careful not to do that. Often what beginners, they do that. They will tend to go back and suddenly, they are unbalanced and they stop here. What you need: it is turning backwards, but reduce the weight and do not bring your leg. Group the possible inside to pivot easily on your leg there and there, you turn and you find yourself as I told you earlier. Your opponent is out there, I find myself facing him there. Okay So we will do exercises two exercises, just for rotations. We will begin. I’ll get back to you, it will be much simpler. And you’re just like me. So there, we will work the short sides. Systematically, when we did Oi Zuki, let’s say, I’m at the end of a short side. Yoi So there, no ad Kata because we will not make the Kata. We only work on the Kata. Yoi So it goes left Ichi Ni So we said: “I’m at the end of a small side” So I go back and look over my arms and back Ichi Ni I’m always at the end of a short side. There, I left there. Okay. go ahead So over my arm Ichi Ni They say we’re still on a small side. So, I’ll go back. I’m right arm, so I’m behind Ichi Ni I’m a little too close. Always a small side, I left: One two Behind To the left Behind To the left Behind To the left Behind To the left Behind To the left You have seen, the principle is simple. When you left arm in front, you go left. When you get right arm before you go behind. Just as in the Kata. In kata, when you are on the small side, if you have the front left arm, is that you go to the right line. If you have the right arm in front of you will turn back. So I forgot to tell you, rotations there are on the back leg and it’s called Ushiro Mawari Ashi. Here. This rotation is: as soon as you turn on the back leg. It’s Ushiro Mawari Ashi. When you turn on the front leg is Mawari Ashi. So we start again. It puts a little more speed and then the second year we did. go ahead I started here and I left One two right arm, I’m behind. Ichi Ni To the left Ichi Ni Behind Ichi Ni To the left Ichi Ni Behind Ichi Ni To the left Ichi Ni Behind Ichi Ni To the left Ichi NI Behind Ichi NI To the left Ichi Ni Behind Ichi NI Ichi Ni Ichi NI Ichi NI Ichi NI Ichi NI Ichi NI Ichi NI Ichi NI Yame So try to rework this exercise often enough and then you will see, it will become automatic. You’ll have no problem. Here. Now we will work the other rotation. So, when you reach the end of the straight, just after: the Kiai. Remember, when you are at the end of the straight, you make the Kiai. And there, suddenly, you are no longer the same rotation. There, this time You put yourself exactly like me. So you come in my back, facing the screen, right leg in front, arms straight. So there you are like that. You have just Oi Zuki there with the Kiai. So there, now you will come to the front leg. You come to the front leg, like this. The left arm is already beginning to mount in the ear, turn, pivot on your heel and you come here. It’s not easy to do when you go slowly. But to learn it already gently to see the rotation and after, it will get better. Okay ! We take back. go ahead We do that, we come here, and here you need to be facing there. You must not be half the body there and then like that. You really do face like that. Not like this. So there I am facing here. I start again. go ahead One two I start again. My right arm before One two So what we will do, it will work like that, you put yourself behind and you are just like me. We will imagine that every time is the end of a long straight. So we will do it again without stopping and return. go ahead right arm before. Do not put speed One two For now, we try to understand how it works. We continue. You saw, looking more over his arms, looking at the other side and that is the rear arm and the back leg that will make three quarter turns to get there. go ahead Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi NI Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Yame Yasme So you’ve seen that you do not need much space. A square meter, it allows you to work rotations Mawari Ashi you do after straight lines. go ahead We start the Kata. So there you follow me. Yoi So you put yourself in my back and you’re just like me. Come on, when I give the time, it never stops. Taikyoku Shodan Yoi We’re not going too fast. Turn left. Ichi Ni It is down a small side, it goes behind. Ichi Ni After a short side, it goes left. Ichi Ni San Shi So there it is a Kiai, it is at the end of the straight. So the second year we did. We will rotate for three quarters of a turn. Ichi Ni After a short side, it goes behind. Ichi Ni After a short side, I left. Ichi Ni San Shi At the end of the long straight. So I rotated. Ichi Ni After a short side, I’m behind. Ichi Ni I’m done. So you saw. Repeat this several times, gently asking you every time the question: “Am I at the end of a short side? ” It is necessary that you visualize where you are compared to the big “I” Okay compared to Embusen Kata. Come on, we redid the normal speed. Musubi Dachi. Taikyoku Shodan Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni San Shi Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Ichi Ni San Shi Ichi Ni Ichi Ni Yame Yasme So there we will stop there for your first Kata. I hope you liked it. Come watch the video, if you really just starting and then you do not know this Kata then do Taikyoku Nidan, Sandan, Yodan, Godan and Rokudan. We’ll have to know first. Once you know the first, after you will find it easy to learn the following, but you have to know first. Besides knowing, Taikyoku will help tremendously when then, we will learn the Heian. The series of Heian. The Embusen the very similar. There are some variations, but basically it’s the same. This is a big “I”, so come back and do this job you will see, it will get better. Here.
