FINISH HIM! with Cayman

August 18, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Why follow-ups are difficult, how they’re good for the rest of your karate, and why you should practice them in isolation.

Follow-ups are the parts of our partner work that only matter after everything else goes right, so there’s a temptation to neglect them when we’re working with different people.  After all, no matter how good your follow-up is, it’s your lead-ins and/or takedowns that get you there.  So why do they matter so much and why is now an ideal time to work on them?  We’ll work through a few drills, (partner optional) share some examples, and talk about why follow-ups can be an excellent self-teaching tool that spills over to improve basics, forms, and fighting, but only if we do them in the correct mindset.

If you have your target from Focusing Your Strikes, bring that; if you have your workout clothes from Core Work, you can keep using those. Otherwise, bring a target (focus mitt/cushion/volleyball/soccer ball) and comfortable workout clothes (like gi pants and your new 2020 TKA Camp TShirt.)
