Our dojo was incredibly fortunate to have a visit from Mike Dukas Sensei tonight. Both juniors and seniors learned so much!
The mixed belt adult class in Pretoria was presented by Mike Dukas Sensei with the theme of correct hip application.
Class started with basic kihon focusing on correct hip rotation. Important technical points for the upcoming WSKF SA Dan Grading was covered for those considering attempting the examination in October. Kumite was focused on a variation of kihon ippon kumite with both a yoko geri attack and counter attack. Emphasis was placed on maximum hip extension whilst maintaining alignment of the head and supporting back foot.
