Kate is classically fighting without a partner being in front of you. As such a Kate should always be performed as if one were fighting an opponent. Points to remember- Kinship – Awareness. Imagine where your opponent would be. Nimbuses – The lines of Kate. Ideally you should start and finish on the same spot, and keep within the lines of the Kate. Kaki – Spirit. This is displayed by a shout at set points in the Kate. Change – The correct focus of your attention. Was No Swanky – Correct Speeds. Contrast between the fast and slow movements. ;Introduction to Wad-Rye Karate (Andrew Gentry) “Kate No Roughens (Six principles of Kate)- – Skits Kate.

If Karate is taught Very specifically traditionally, then Pain Shoddy would usually come first to Pain Indian. Karate In Sentiments” meaning “Karate-aka should never attack first”. This is shown in most Keats as you would be intercepting an opponent’s attack; not yourself attacking Bunkum: Key for Bunkum: Performer: Karate-aka performing Kate Attacker: Current opponent of the Performer All Keats explained are my interpretations of what the “attacker” is doing and what the “performer” does to defend. They are no solid authenticity. Pain Shoddy; The first move is a Sotto Eke blocking a right hand Sukiyaki to the face and a Sodas Eke to block a left leg roundhouse kick coming to the face.

The hand movement in the Kate is a little more difficult. Therefore you should study the Kate carefully. ” Wad-Rye Karate: The complete art uncovered “The feeling you are trying to get when performing Kate, is for want of a better word ‘total’ combat, you must visualize your opponents in your mind’s eye at all times. Don’t rush your Kate, doing a Kate with power and speed is not the same as rushing the Kate.
Try break down the Kate into sections as you learn them. There is no point in trying to learn a whole Kate in one lesson, as you will almost always forget parts of it. One of the great things about Kate is as you grow older you can perform the Kate to your fitness level and age. Any Karate-aka that expects a 60 year old to perform a Kate like a 25 year old is unrealistic. If the 60 year old has been practicing most of their lives then the likelihood is you would rather watch them perform a faultless Kate, than the 25 year old in the flush of youth.
Kate is very good for fitness and keeps your interest as there is always omitting to learn, however you will never learn everything about a Kate. ” Wad-Rye Karate: The complete art uncovered Non-Pain Keats are: (not including Dan Grade Keats) UK Shanks – To view the sky Ana Hannah – Sideways Fighting Sheehan – Half Moon Chintz – Crane on a rock Basic- To penetrate a fortress UK Shanks- UK Shanks is the first Kate learnt after the Pain stages, it includes different segments of all Pain Keats and other moves from earlier belts.

Don’t attempt to learn this Kate without good grounding in the 5 Pain Ana Hannah- Ana Hannah is the second of the Non-Pain Keats. The meaning of Ana Hannah “Sideways Fighting”) states the obvious, as the only directions you move are left and right. It would appear to break the rule of “Karate In Sentiments” meaning “Karate-aka should never attack first”.
However, after the circular movement with the hands, there is a block with the upper arm which could possibly block a Kamikaze, striking to the neck. “Ana Hannah Kate; was, it was said, Master Outshoot’s favored Kate. It is certainly a difficult one and demands intensive training. The main points of the Kate should be moving into Ana Hannah stance, after punching and blocking, pulling back into the same arm level (approximately level with mid- turner) and relaxing during the Kate; especially the shoulders, that need to be kept in a normal state.
This Kate is great for strengthening your legs and calf muscles, it is said Outshoot’s main influence for this Kate was the Karate Master Momentum.
