Sanbon Kumite Chudan Uke 5 – KOSHI SABAKI

koshi sabaki or ashi sabaki?

Both. But preferably Koshi Sabaki - especially for higher level students. 

Koshi means hip and therefore refers to using the centre to move. Not the feet.

Feet movement should be connected to your body movement as this will cause 3 things to happen:

  1. Your movement is more smooth so more difficult to detect
  2. Your power output increases so techniques will be more effective
  3. It's one movement so it's faster

On surface level, you can say that you can push your hip, pull your hip and you can twist it. 

Example:

ASHI SABAKI: From left stance, position your left foot next to your right, then execute Mawashigeri.

KOSHI SABAKI: Shift your weight back (pull your hip) as you twist your hip to the left. Use the weight shift and hip twist to pull your left foot next to your right foot. Without stopping, flow into Mawashigeri.

Sanbon Kumite Chudan Uke 5 from Ishikawa Sensei teaches you exactly that.
