Fukyugata Ich Solo Pad Drill 3

August 20, 2020

Karate is indeed primarily a striking art, but the kata also contain basic throws. Shoshine Nagamine, the founder of Matsubayashi-ryu and the creator of Fukyugata Ich, was also a judo practitioner, and it is reasonable to conclude that he incorporated basic throws into his kata. This video demonstrates how to practice a throw from Fukyugata Ich as a solo pad training drill, working off the lunge punch and the reverse punch. Note how the strike functions as a way to facilitate successfully throwing the enemy.
