Kihon Gumite Course – May 2015


The NIKW hosted a valuable technical course on Saturday 9th May with Sensei Brunton, who impressed those attending by discussing the detail that lies within the Kihon Gumite of Wado-Kai.
The event took place at the Wado-Kai centre of excellence in Belfast.
Students got a chance to deepen their knowledge of these moves which are viewed as an essential part of Wado-Kai training.

Sensei Brunton highlighted, “These courses are held so we can devote the time to analyse the movements in a way students can get the most knowledge possible.”

Kihon Gumite understanding

Some advanced students were able to draw on Sensei Bruntons vast experience, improving their technique to make their Karate practical in a real fighting situation, while other students took the chance to learn some more basic concepts. It was stressed in the course, only by training at the technique within the movements, will your karate become of any benefit.
