Technique of the Week (August 12th, 2007)
Karen Brophy, Shihan
Later this week many Deshi will have the good fortune to reconnect with old friends, meet new friends, and spend many hours engaged in Karate. Personally, I am very excited to see everyone and learn from their Karate.
I thought it would be helpful to remind everyone some key points on demonstrating Kata. Many of my instructors have shared these points with me over the years, for which I am extremely grateful.
1. Take your time. This is your moment to show your best form!
There are certainly more aspects to demonstrating Kata, but keeping these in mind as you practice will help you perform well whenever you are on the spot.
Domo Arigato to Sensei Joe Knight, Sensei Teresa Knight and Sensei Scaglione for hosting the 45th Anniversary.
