Heian Yondan: The Kata with 5 kicks (Afterpart)
We started the study ofHeian Yondan in a previous video.
You had time to really understand the first part, I think. It's time now to move on and finish learningHeian Yondan who should you be asked for the passage of your blue belt (or green following the clubs)
Throughout the first part, there were often changes of direction where one had to pivot the hips strongly to send the technique towards the opponent. In this second part ofHeian Yondan, work is done much more online with a job against the opponent.
Heian Yondan: Decomposition of Kata (Continued)
As I already told you, you will have to start memorizing more and more the names of techniques because you will need them when passing your black belt (in 2 or 3 years)
(I put aside the break time you have to do sometimes.)
We were stopped at 17 time on Uraken Otoshi right in Kosa Dachi with the Kiai, we will resume at time 18 (logical!)
18. Pivot on the right foot by moving the left foot to the left to position yourself in Kokutsu Dachi at 60 ° with respect to the central axis. At the same time, you cross your arms in front of you (left arm in front of right) with palms facing your face. Then when you stabilize your position, you make Chudan Kakiwake Uke left down and spreading fists with palms facing forward. The movement is slowly breathing about 3 seconds. You exhale while spreading your fists. You must feel power on the side of your forearms. Do not stretch your elbows too much and keep your strength under the armpits and lower your shoulders.
Some at the pivot goes into Neko Ashi Dachi before moving on Kokutsuyou can also do this, it's a variation.
19. Chudan Mae Geri right by keeping your arms in the same position. Warning, on the video, I'm doing the Mae Geri Jodanit's a big mistake, it's good at Chudan level, sorry.
20. ZenKutsu Dachi right + Chudan Oizuki law. This time is directly related to Mae Geribecause you are doing Oizuki the moment you put your foot forward. Be careful, the arms should not move, that is to say that the Tsuki right starts directly from the position of the Kakiwake Uke without going back before to arm.
21. You chained directly on Chudan Gyaku Zuki left. Do not forget to engage your left hip. (1s)
22. You turn right at 120 ° to make Chudan Kakiwake law. This is the exact replica of 18 time
23. Chudan Mae Geri left. ditto 19 time
21. Chudan Gyaku Zuki law. ditto 21 time. (1s)
22. You pivot on the back foot and make Morote Uchi Uke left in Kokutsu Dachi left. Be careful to use both arms in the same direction (forward: Return to the video of Morote Uchi Uke it will help you understand.)
23. Advancing Ayumi Ashi : Kokustu Dashi right + Morote Uchi Uke law. Be careful, to arm, the arms do not go backwards, but it is the body that moves forward and the arms are on the side. Do not turn too far backwards as sometimes seen to arm. You must keep in mind that you are going forward.
25. On the spot, you go from Kokutsu Dachi à Zenkutsu Dachi slightly shifting the left foot to the left. This gap is not an obligation. Many experts do not shift it and go into Hiza Kutsu with feet almost aligned. You extend your arms in front of you as if to grasp the face of your opponent. This time is slow enough in inspiration.
26. Hiza Geri right by pulling the fists down and back. The arms spread slightly to finish on each side of the body (as in the photo at the beginning of the article). You have to give Hiza Geri with the hips (net retroversion of the pelvis) and raise the knee very high. The position remains very stable with the left heel plated on the ground. Push the KIAI (1s)
27. On the spot, while keeping the right knee in the air, you will turn on the left foot to 180 ° to the left while arming your arms in preparation for Shuto Uke.
Then you go down on your right leg to position yourself in Kokutsu Dachi left + Shuto Uke left. It is important to rotate well before descending. Do not fall on your right leg. It is not a loss of balance, it is you who decide the position.
29. Return Hachiji Dachi by bringing back the right leg (3s)
30. Return Musubi Dachi (Bring each foot in half one after the other, half right, then half left.)
31. Rei (Hi) (3s)
Here we are arrived at the end of the kata Heian Yondan 😉
As I told you, Heian Yondan is a very complete kata with many kicks and a lot of rotational work. You will need all the qualities acquired in the previous kata to feel well Heian Yondanbut over the rehearsals you will enjoy.
I'll let you go to the locker room and after your warm-up session, I find you for learning the second part ofHeian Yondan on video.
Erratum : Contrary to what I say in the video, the Mae Geri after the Kakiwake Uke are at the level chudan et non Jodan. sorry for the mistake
Leave me a comment, I will be happy to answer it.
