Synopsis

Iain Abernethy explains in detail the practical use of many misunderstood techniques in addition to covering the changes that need to be made to common training methods in order to practice karate as an effective system with genuine relevance to live situations. He demonstrates punches, hand-strikes and limb-control and provides detailed instruction on close-range punching, power generation, the practical reason for the hands coming to the hip, the frequently misunderstood and ignored lessons of kata, the role of a 'guard' (where should the hands be held?), bringing underused karate punching techniques back onto the syllabus, the use of open-hand strikes, the use of impact equipment, combination punching, controlling the opponent's limbs to create openings, freeing your limbs from an opponent's grip, punching drills, and more.
