Brown Belt Basics Hikite Combination

This is for our 2nd kyu brown belt Karateka working towards 1st Kyu and 1st Kyu karateka taking Shodan black belt.

This is our brown belt Hikite combination, which involves executing five techniques moving forward, with different types of stepping and spinning. Hikite must be maintained throughout the combination. (Video tutorial below)

Although we call this the 'Hikite Combination', the legs are the other main focus throughout the combination.(Video tutorial below)
