Thank you for the compliment and I appreciate the critique. Normally, the kata is performed with a kiba dachi at 1:10. Thanks for pointing that out. I just looked at my other two video and I do the same thing. Part of my natural way of moving maybe?


great progresson man, you can see a leap in preformance each time. i like it.

to critique a little. at the 1:00 mark the lunge punch, when you kiai'd your head tipd back a bit. makes for a throaty kiai, and it breaks the kinimatic chain in the posteroir muscle groups. it's bad for your neck. and at 1:10, is that a kiba dachi or a shiko dachi?

you've got thoes turns on one leg down prety smooth! i bet they've gotta be murder the 15th time through. great work. POST MORE!!
