In traditional karate it is important to learn sparring in a systematic and controlled method. This DVD details the concepts of distance, footwork and timing which, along with proper form for the techniques, are necessary to be successful at traditional non-contact sparring.

Sparring Concepts And Training Methods, Vol One takes the student through the different levels of kumite necessary to become proficient in sparring (kumite) as taught in Shotokan Karate. Beginning with Sambon kumite (3 step sparring) and Gohan kumite (5 step sparring), this video then takes the student through Ippon kumite (formal 1 step sparring) and Jiyu Ippon kumite (semi-free sparring). The final section presents a basic introduction to Jiyu Kumite (free sparring).

This DVD explains in detail all the important points necessary to understand basic kumite. Many examples of each type of kumite are demonstrated to give the student a better idea of how these concepts apply in a variety of situations.
