Ishikawa sensei added techniques on top of Suzuki sensei's Sanbon >> 10 per category.
That's 10 Chudan, 10 Jodan and 10 Maegeri Uke. 30 Sanbon Kumite that are a peek inside Ishikawa sensei's brain. His kumite techniques.
Study them and turn your straight forward and back movement into angles and Wado Taisabaki.
Maybe... just maybe you're one of the few people who performs Ohyo Kumite correctly. But odds are you're not (sorry).
Not to worry though... it's a mindset thing. A perspective.
It can be changed (I did it too and so did my students once I found out).
1 THING: A perspective that COMPLETELY affects the techniques you already know.
It changes HOW you execute the form— the same form... but a better, more effective result.
First things first: you never will (it's a good thing)
BUT... there is a way to get WAY CLOSER to being satisfied or at least HAPPY with your performance without shaking your head or looking down to check your stance.
It all starts with knowing what's important (and what not).
Example: In Kihon Kumite #3 some are obsessed with the position of the right foot (even claiming that if you stand on this foot you can push him over and break his ankle).
Here's the issue: 🔎
Too much zooming in. Emphasising...
It's counterproductive tunnelvision, focusing on what DOES NOT help your skill. In fact, you'll think about foot placement alone and lose sight of the bigger picture: PRIMARY PURPOSE and principle.

And being smart about it using Wado Principles.
Stop thinking in pictures (stances), taking a 'good' Neko Ashi Dachi minding your raised heel... Instead: focus on movement learning how to connect your arms and legs to your body movement.
Conclusion: body and principles first... not hand, foot, arm, leg and technique first.
