Bring What You Read In Old Books To Life >> become versatile way beyond gyakuzuki
While my classmates were doing their homework properly (or not at all), I was drilling types of the fist: shape + name. Out loud.
Seiken. Uraken. Tettsui. Ippon, Nihon, Yonhon Nukite.
And there are many more, but who will teach you?
You probably know the different forms/shape of the hand —but do you KNOW them? Can you apply them without hurting yourself in a dynamic situation AND do you know when to use which one? 🤷♂️
I had NO CLUE when I got Ishikawa sensei's book. I designed the drill above (originally it's longer) to memorise the shape and the names.
Pretty cool, but it didn't help.
In fact... I hurt myself when I put it to the test.
It's an embarassing story really ... I (tried to) use Haito to hit one of those punching-balls on a fair. That didn't end well for my elbow. I had to seriously man-up to hide the pain for using it the wrong way.
Hey, what did I now... I was 15!
The fact is, many Karateka dream about knowing all the fancy stuff. Weird hand shapes and ways to strike...
...but when you're in the Dojo, all you do is a straight punch, Uraken and maybe Shuto and Shotei if you're lucky.
It was only years later that I started to see how all were connected.
In "Mastering Shiyobui" I teach you everything I learned from Ishikawa sensei— put in a neat package with highly specific fundamental teaching that connects the dots straight away.
(you'll get an holistic framework instead of a bunch of seperate techniques)
Discovering details you never heard before, including counter-intuitive ways of training that actually work.
Instead of just explaining the shape, you'll discover the important elements that make it strong and effective.
The holistic approach drives deeper understanding that's true for all forms (you don't have to memorise 100+ details)
These videos are dedicated to teach you how to APPLY the forms and DRILL the movement.
Seiken, Tateken, Urazuki, Uraken, Tettsui, Shuto, Yonhon, Nihon, Ippon Nukite, Hiraken, Haito, Shotei, Nakadaka, Hitosashiyubi, Oyayubi Ipponken, Koken, Hirabasami, Koko, Kumate, Nekote, Shishu, Koshi (Maegeri) Haisoku (Mawashigeri), Sokuto (Sokuto/Yokogeri), Kakato (Ushirogeri)
BONUS: ASHI SABAKI -Ayumi Ashi, Tsugi Ashi, Yori Ashi, Surikomi Ashi
Don't worry. You don't have to:
Beyond Standard explanations
Specific Traninig Methds & Drills
A variety of applications
...covers details so you'll not only know the forms, but also understand it's versatility on a fundamental level.
You'll gain the ability to apply through the specific methods and matching & diverse applications. (Incl. 4x BONUS!)
The new ways to apply the fists were eye opening and the application for kumate was very informative. Because of that, I'll definitely be keeping my mind open to even more ways to apply the basics beyond what I've learned.
I'm glad that I got it and would definitely recommend this series to anyone who wants to study the basics of karate in a new way.

Instantly. When you purchase with your The Digi Dojo account email the system immediately gives you access to Mastering Shiyobui.
How can you expect to become good and built experience if you don't start building experience? There are no such things as "black belt" techniques. Yes, sometimes it's better to do things step by step, and that's why the pairwork is designed to work for non-black belts too.
Your sensei can't control what's going on inside your head. Even though you do Gyakuzuki, you can THINK about what you learn in Mastering Shiyobui. And at home, you can work on the basics and special methods (and invite your friend over)
It's one price. As long as The Digi Dojo is online, you can access Mastering Shiyobui 24/7.
If you get Mastering Shiyobui in time, you'll get access and links through a mail sequence that is coming your way.
No. You can't purchase them seperately.
