Shorin-Ryu Karate Tips & Techniques : Knee Strike in Shorin-Ryu Karate
How are you doing? My name is Sensei Qaeem.
On behalf of Expert Village, I’ll be demonstrating Shorin-Ryu karate. In this segment, I’m
going to be demonstrating the knee strike. The knee strike, you simply you want to be
in your forward stance. You’re going to strike with your back leg. Now, when you strike,
you always want to have a target in front of you or an imaginary target in front of
you that you want to be striking with. Now, what you want to do, you’re going to bring
your knee up. Your toe is going to be facing down, that one is towards the ground. You’re
going to bring your knee up and you’re going to lean backwards with it. That way you get
more power with your knee. Bring up, strike, strike. I’m going to be demonstrating that
technique on my partner, Mohammed. Mohammed is simply just going to go for a grab in my
throat. He grabs my throat, I grab him on his shoulders and I come in with knee. With
your knee you can knee right here to the pelvic muscle, or you can bring someone here down.
Mohammed could grab my chest again. I can bring his head down and come up with the knee.
The knee is a technique that can be very critical to your subject. So, Mohammed is coming in,
he’s grabbing, bring him down, knee strike. Once again, notice how I am here but I still
have my balance because I am bending my knee. Grab, knee strike…grab, knee strike. That
is the knee strike. On behalf of Expert Village, my name is Qaeem. Thank you for watching.
