How to Do Block & Counter Techniques | Karate Lessons

Okay, so for block and counter techniques
I am going to use the format of Ippon Kumite; one step basic pair work. We are going to vary the distance so the first
set you will see will have the middle distance of the punching. The second set you will see will have a closer
range with striking techniques. The third set you will see will have kicking
techniques at a longer range. We will show three different ranges with this. First one I am going to attack Jordan to the
face. Jordan half speed. Then with speed. The next one is going to be to the middle
level. Slow speed at first. Then at real speed. The next one will be, so that is a lower level
just above the belt. Now Alex is going to attack and I will show
closer range distance. Half speed. Around elbow strike. Knife hand strike. And back fist strike. Next Alex is going to show a longer distance
and he is going to kick. To the face first. So these are examples of several distances
of counter and their variations and also gives you an idea of the fine control which we have
to exercise when we are working with our partner in the dojo.

  1. L.Lawliet  obviously your ignorant to why martial arts practitioners need to yell during a strike. By the way kick boxers, boxers and all striking martials arts yell or hiss.  

  2. Forget Karate, I'm training to be a Pokémon Master!!!! Its been a long road, but I only have 3 Gym Badges left to go!!!

  3. Not only is this karate not realistic, but it is laughable. No karate person could possibly survive against a Muay Thai or MMA opponent.

  4. They are so bad and still get so many views, i should lower the quality of my videos to get so many views

  5. How does this type of block work. Every time I see it displayed, the person throwing the punch is already punching to the side of the person blocking.

  6. People don't understand demonstrations do they? A street fight will never play out like this. However, these types of movements can save you from a punch or a kick since their so easy to do.

  7. Sadly it is an obsolete fighting style, based on defending against a hypothetical brawler that lived 200+. years ago in late feudal Japan. Yes you are right. Nowadays brawlers have things called methamphetamines and king kits from behind. This system assumes your attacker will fight with honor and chivalry, as was the norm in feudal Japan.

  8. The reason why American and European karate does not work because of this single reason
    The Japanese karate teaches you that you have to block and punch at the same time
    A simultaneous counter
    Look at boxing and Muay Thai they are the king of striking why
    Because of the simultaneous counter they drill and drill thousands of times all day everyday for muscle memory
    But with this karate it won't work and never will

  9. why do people keep on saying that these won't work? If you are talking about gang fights, of course it won't, simply because karate is not for gang fights and these blocks would actually help you block easier. For tose who doesnt understand karate and thinks that karate is just for every types of fight, let me get this straight, base on my knowledge about karate which happens to be kyokushin karate, they are for self defense, one should have self descipline and its a part of the law or the ones that you say before starting formal training, it is said there that you should live your life through the descipline of karate(if you do karate).

  10. There's so many different blocks that I have learnt whilst studying martial arts and some will work in street fights where as some will work in competitive fights with other martial artists. A good martial artist can do an effective block on instinct when his enemy throws a punch/kick so you shouldn't worry about which block works and what doesn't work. Don't let the idea of Karate not working in street fights put you off learning it because it is one of the things I study and when I have been attacked in the street before it has really saved me without really having to throw a punch.  You guys should check out aikido as that is something that really teaches you useful things that can be used in the streets when someone attacks with there hands or a weapon.

  11. ¿las tecnicas de karate son efectivas en defensa personal? yo siempre practique karate deportivo y las veo muy simples como para ser efectivas

  12. Never keep you ur hands that low in a real fight. You will get punched in the face. And when you counter punch like that young guy does , never leave your ur face exposed. You put the hand that you aren't punching with up protecting your face.

  13. beautifully done. counters get you points plain and simple. also if u are fighting an advanced opanant in real life it could save your life.

  14. we will be having our performance task on thursday and it's all about these skills in karate, may i ask why do they have to use their voices in executing the actions?
