Instructions for Wado-Ryu Kumite Kihon 3

After bowing, the attacker takes one step forward and the defender takes one step backward, each assuming Migi Zenkutsu-dachi position (Right basic stance).

  • Attacker (Torre)
  1. Migi Zenkutsu-dachi (Right basic stance)
  2. Lunge forward with Migi Tsukkomi Jodan (Right height punch)
  3. Adjust your feet, change arms and do Maegeri Chudan (Middle height kick)
  • Defender (Uke)
  1. Migi Zenkutsu-dachi (Right basic stance)
  2. Move body obliquely backward and twist body to left to avoid punch while doing right Nagashi Soto-uke (middle block) to avoid punch
  3. As they go to execute the Maegeri. Push forward in Migi Zenkutsu-dachi position (Right basic stance), simultaneously strike with Uraken (Back fist) to the chest and Hidari Ippon Ken (Left one knuckle punch) to the knee.
