Target Exercise Using Oi Zuki Technique

Shotokan Karate Training Videos Target Exercise Using Oi Zuki Technique

The sooner a karateka understands distance (ma-ai), the better. This is a very simple but effective distance and target exercise.

From kamae step and attack oi zuki in zenkutsudachi. The basic principles apply, keep low, use the driving leg, keep the back straight, shoulders down, keep kamae, but stay relaxed throughout the technique.

As you can see in the video, I change target from the chin to the throat, be very careful with this, but it is a good way to quickly change the target area. This training can be practiced with a partner or if you are practicing at home, a stationary target will be just as effective.
