Ashihara Karate Video ClipSparring Form - Long Range Combination
Ashihara Karate makes use of sparring forms. These forms are a series
of combinations that can be executed full speed as if shadow boxing. They
can be done solo or against others assuming the role of the attackers.
It gives a more realistic approach to forms and also gives a much better
work out than the typical forms. The kata demonstrated, Kumite No kata
sono Go, is a kata for Sandan (3rd Degree level black belt). Kumite Go
or Sparring form number 5 is done at a long range. The kata shown is done
solo and then the application is also demonstrated.
Special thanks to J. Scott Stevens for transferring the kata from video
to its current format.
