Kyoshi's Technique of the Week

September 23th 2012

From Sensei Shlomo Dadon Denshi/Sensei
Eilat Israel

The Fist

How we should make our fist?

Assume a well rooted foundation of natural stance (shizentai-dachi)

Straighten your hands with arms horizontally

Close your 4 fingers and then close your thumb strong over first 2 fingers and turn your fists

Your fists must be straight with your arms all the time, especially when you perform kata
or when you do push-ups; all must be straight including when you strengthen your fingers and your fists via makiwara training

This will protect your hands from being damaged/injured in case of a fight

You must train in this way all the time when performing kata -- keeping your fists straight and closed!

Domo Arigato Hanshi and to All
