Beginner Kyokushin Karate Techniques : How to Throw an Uppercut in Kyokushin Karate
On behalf of Expert Village, my name is Tony
Capraro, sensei of Kyokushin Karate, Without Limits, Inc., 1652 Richmond Avenue, Staten
Island, New York. We are here today to present to you basic Kyokushin technique. Two of the
most devastating knock out punches in Kyokushin bare knuckle fighting are the upper cuts.
We’re going to demonstrate the upper cuts right from the fighting position. Left foot
forward, right hand uppercut, left hand uppercut. You have to lift up all the body weight from
your hips and your knees. Right hand uppercut, left hand upper cut. You have to be very close.
This is a close range punch. This is what it looks like when you demonstrate. Back and
forth. Back and forth.
