What do you think makes a kata look better?
And also: do you think a kata looks better when a taller or shorter person does it?
Thank you all for reading and answering!
Later in life im planning on opening a self defense academy. My school will not so much focus on a specific style but just the most effective and realistic techniques there are. The curriculum will be very similar to a Krav Maga curriculum. As realistic as possible! I really want to be involved my community, doing demo's at city gatherings and getting involved with local law enforcement agencies. I will also try to be involved on the internet, offering service through online tutorials. I know just Read more [...]
‘unyu’ jaman sekarang bisa ditafsirkan seenaknya, mulai dr imut sampe keren. di bahasa indonesia istilahnya disebut kata apa? gw pernah denegr tp lupa, kaya arbitrer2 gitu namanya, tp arbiter beda arti. misal laennya anjing, kan skrg bisa berarti binatang tp jg bisa berarti makian atau sesuatu yg keren banget tergantung penggunaan,
Can i have a whole list of Karate Shotokan Katas.
I reckon there is 30 of them in total with Taikyoku Shodan, Nidan etc. but i got lists that say there are 28 withouth the Taikyoku katas.
I know there are lots of katas and different dojos teach differently but can i have the whole possible list.
I live in Florida and want to know where I can learn self defense?
what they teach us actually? Are they for fitness or single sparring ? Is there any benefit in real life? Same thing is for kung fu but I don’t know what their names are.
Please let me know why do we practice them? I expect answers from both Taekwondo and Karate discipline. Thanks.
I have been accepted for a job which consists in learning Karate, the course is free, the karate uniform I have to pay (it’s cheap), moving on..
I really like this kind of job, it combines fun + work together but I’m worried that things might go wrong, even though I will as always do my best.
Just a little uncertain if I really want this, I do but not confident about it.
I’ve noticed on that a lot of folks here seem to assume that martial arts is the best choice for learning self defense. But is that really true? Martial Arts generaly takes several years to gain true proficiency and that’s usually with several hours of practice a week. Isn’t there a faster, more effecient way to learn practical self defense?
i heard katas are supposed to be simulated fights kind of but how do you know how a fight would pan out? how do you know when, in this fight, you would need to block and when to strike etc. like what if your opponent kicked and you blocked a punch?
i am NOT bashing kata. i just don’t know what they are for. thanks in advance
