We try to put all aspects of our martial arts and sports development into practice. Distinguished here are the large domains Karate-Jutsu and Karate-Do. In the Jutsu (technique), the focus is put on purely the technical aspects and the confrontation with a partner (competition) or opponent (aggressor), which is about protecting themselves or to survive a fight as unscathed as possible. Exercising the Do (way), the focus is more inwardly directed and the exercises are aimed primarily at dealing with the individual and the advancement of one’s personality.
Seiza and Mokesu
The short meditation at the beginning and end of the training also serves to arrive calmly in training and not to bring the hustle and stress of the day in the exercises.
Warm up, Strain
The purpose here lies in injury prevention and the improvement of the coordinative abilities in particular by extending muscle elasticity. From a purely gymnastic point of view, karate can be interesting, because it puts strain on all body parts fairly equally.
The Kihon, in which initially individual techniques and later combinations of techniques are practiced, serves to improve the technique used in terms of strength, speed and coordination.
Kata can be described as a set sequence of moves that represents a fight against multiple opponents. Kata can be considered from purely formal and aesthetic aspects, but also forms the basis for the exercise of the inner path. The aim of the exercise is to eliminate all fears that have developed from the loss of the biological guidance of man through the emergence of consciousness.
Partner exercises increase from simple standardized exercises to free combat with no technical or tactical restrictions. Mainly used today for competition, it is also interesting for those who do not want to participate in a competition. You have to face the situation and can learn a lot about yourself, which will help you in other conflicts in everyday life (job applications, oral exams).
For some, the application of techniques practiced in Kata forms the transition to self-defense, in which the techniques of kata are adapted to the needs of the defender (size, strength, …) and the situation (attacker, circumstances, …).
