On Sunday 17th November 35 Karate-Ka from the Shotokan Karate Ryu met at the Mountfitchet Romeera Leisure Centre in Stansted Mountfitchet for 2 hours of intense training in Kihon Ippon Kumite and Jiyu Ippon Kumite set defences.


Kihon Ippon and Jiyu Ippon Kumite is an applied form of Karate training that promotes a stronger focus on the self defence and martial aspects of Karate-do training. Practice of Kumite set defences requires the co-ordination of mind and body to improve timing, balance, agility, endurance and fluidity of movement between techniques.
