Fukyugata Ich Solo Pad Drill 5

When a kata presents a technique a second time but followed up differently, it is likely the kata is teaching us various ways of following up that basic technique. For example, the first high block in fukyugata ich is followed by a low block (explored in the previous video). The second high block is followed by a reverse punch, showing us a different way to apply a follow-up strike. In this video, we examine a way to deal with the lapel grab by first striking the neck and then using the hikite and reverse punch to expose and strike the kidney or floating rib region. That can be followed up by a knee strike and elbow strike combination.
