Sanbon Kumite Chudan Uke 9 TAISABAKI

what is taisabaki?

Taisabaki is a technical term used in various Karate styles.

The actual use of the body however, can be quite different. For example, stepping out to the side in a 45 degree angle is sometimes called Taisabaki. Not in Wado. Strictly speaking there is no such thing as side-stepping in Wado.

In Wado, Taisabaki means to twist your body in such a manner that you can avoid and counterattack at the same time. 

You might know that Wado has its roots in Koryu Jujutsu and Kenjutsu. The Jujutsu side of Wado is not found in the Kansetsu and Nage Waza. All Karate styles have those kinds of techniques. 

Koryu influence is for example Wado Taisabaki. How to use your body.

use these methods to improve your taisabaki

It's all about focus. Laserfocus. To be concerned only about one specific element that you want to work on. 

Kihon Kumite 1's Taisabaki for example... So many things to be mindful of. Timing, distance, positioning, arm movement... 

A method is a way of training that isolates and emphasises certain aspects of the complete movement. So you can focus specifically on that.

What do you think is better... move gradually or instantly from Shomen to Mahanmi?

focus on hip and axis rotation

This second from three methods on Jodan Uke facilitates hip and axis rotation. It zooms in so you can emphasise on that particular body movement.

Sticky practise for wado taisabaki

By tweaking only one thing - emphasis of training changes completely. It allows you to take a difficult part of the movement out of the equation so you can focus on the sticky part.
