Karaoke Drills

Karaoke Drills

Karaoke drills (also known as Cariaoca or grapevine drills) are footwork drills used in martial arts for warm-ups and to improve agility. This drill involves running sideways with your feet crossing in front and behind each other. This helps martial artists improve their coordination when moving laterally (as they practice not tangling their feet when moving sideways).

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional drills, please visit the main Physical Fitness and Agility Training sections.
