Kihon Kumite 4 introduces Nami Gaeshi

kihon kumite 4 

Kihon Kumite 4 is the first to use Gyaku Gamae position.

This changes the situation.

If the opponent would strike with his right hand, only a slight movement to the left is necessary to avoid the punch. This is because the actual direction of the punch is a diagonal and not straight forward due to the position of the shoulder. Hence, it is more difficult to execute Harai Uke to this left punch. The direction you are moving in to avoid the punch, is the same direction as the punch will travel. Therefore, the opponents weight will come towards you when you are in Gyaku Gamae.

In other words, moving to the inside is more difficult then moving to the outside.

performance

Instead of executing the form, focus on feeling the attack and move accordingly. Having said that, do this after you internalised the form.

Note the shoulders not following the movement of the hand.

explanation

There is a big difference between number 1,2,3 and 4,5,6,7. It changes the direction of the first movement as you need to be mindful of the Gyaku Gamae position.

kihon kumite 4 ohyo by sakagami sensei

This Ohyo of Kihon Kumite 4 shows the exploration of the Gyaku Gamae position. This basically means that you should not be fixed to move towards the inside as in the regular Yonhonme. Techniques need life and therefore your mind has to be free of fixed methods. Hence, be free to apply (ohyo) in any direction with any technique that suits circumstance.
