  1. Hello Bruno,
    -What I think about karate-blog.net, karate clear and net is - already to start - for me it was a great opportunity to find a blog like this because it helps me - even if in part - to improve myself and move towards my dreams among which there is the practice of karate, and in fact I must admit that the articles that videos of Bruno really helped me a lot
    -the article, on the other hand, is really fantastic, it encourages people who like me - from time to time - to think that it is practically impossible to learn alone at home, by giving more hope and by always pushing deeper into this world full of novelties.

  2. This is excelent Bruno a good idea of ​​technical memorization and all in all me having difficulties it helps me a lot I feel ahead and in addition to my 4 courses per week jaimerai see a course on bunkai my greetings Bruno

  3. Hello Bruno

    I started karate a little less than 4 years ago, thanks to your videos, I improved a lot.
    It's really awesome.
    I received my black belt 1ere Dan a month ago

    All my gratitude

  4. Some critics probably jealous, but how not to be in front of your success. Bravo for me for your investment and your pedagogy. I have 73ans and I started Karate last year. I practice 5 Karas "pinan" at home as a gymnastic, at this moment I discover tekki shodan. Thanks to whom? to Bruno ...! After indulging in several sports of leisure (tennis, paragliding, delta, plane, rollers, ...) I discover karate late and curiously I like very much, is it normal?
    I'm probably not in the norms ... but I will continue to follow you.

      Hello Germain,

      I thank you for your support comment and I congratulate you for your start in Karate.
      Whether you are in the norms or not, I would say we do not care. The important thing is the pleasure that we have to do things.

      And as they say, we have the age that we have in our head and on this side, you seem to me younger and curious than many "young" 🙂

      Sincerely,
      Bruno

  5. Hello Bruno nice your site a pity that you do not answer live questions, having tried several times to reach you I feel like receiving automatic answers to see you soon: Christmas

    • Bruno Bandelier at

      Good evening Christmas,

      I thank you for your comment, but you should explain to me what you blame me ...
      You are more than 20000 subscribers on KBN and I get dozens of emails every day, so it's not always easy to answer directly to everyone. That said, to my knowledge I always replied to your emails when you asked me a question. Every time you tell me receive automatic responses but I have already replied by email that it was me who answered you.
      Here you write this comment saying that I do not answer you while you have not sent me any email or comment for over a year. I do not understand very well…

      Sincerely,
      Bruno

  6. Hello Bruno,

    You had your 1er Dan in only 2 years, whereas I was only orange belt. I ask myself the question, I practice since 21 years I have never seen that. how can you have acquired all the basics in 2 years ??? for me impossible if you practice karate as it should. You have to be careful when you say things like that, even if you got your black belt in 2 years, it can encourage practitioners to do the same and burn a lot of essential steps. We are teachers and responsible for conveying the knowledge of our elders let's not forget that we practice a martial arts and not a race to the ranks

    • Hello Alain,

      Yes we are teachers and responsible for what we carry but I do not agree with you. I think we need to show our students the people who have achieved their goals in order to give them the desire. Without ambitious goal and without desire, we do not advance, we are like a boat without rudder, we can put a lot of effort we will never reach the goal.
      To go up to his pupils champions for example makes them want to surpass themselves to look like them and to make ditto as you say, I find that rather well.
      In my case, I'm not a champion but I managed to get my black belt (actually it was only the black belt Technique, because I had the first dan in combat later) in only 2 years. For you it's impossible, but I did it. And believe me, we did not give it (It was in 95 with Bassai Dai and Kanku Dai and more), from memory we had to be a fortnight in passing and we are that 3 to have obtained.
      How did I do it was very simple, I set myself ambitious goals and worked very hard with method. I went to class 5 once a week + at all stages and at the same time I did my homework.
      I invite you to read my article: https://karate-blog.net/vous-pouvez-tous-etre-ceinture-noire-la-preuve-ecrite
      In fact I have trouble understanding your arguments because you say yourself that the black belt is the basics. Why should it take ten years to learn these basics? I'm not saying that you have to rush, because it's a lot of work, but you have to work a lot on these bases in order to progress quickly.
      Another thing, you know I do not race to grade because after me too 21 years of practice I am only 3ème dan

      Sincerely,
      Bruno

  7. Hello Sensei,

    The reflection of the adaptation of the tradition to the evolving world, the movement without continuation, which one finds in martial practice. See what represents, essentially your approach.
    Original approach and again adapted to our world of hyper communication.

    Of course, this contribution should not obscure a two-man practice, outdoors in a Dojo, under the direction of a Sempai or Sensei and the solitary work of personal research, essential to discover other paths leading to the Budoka Way and being personally realized in and through practice.

    FYI, I practice martial arts for almost 30 years and I started the To-die Shotokan style. My level was that of the brown belt.
    Today, I am a solitary practitioner, enriched by a field experience and being connected to your blog, allows me to have an opening on the martial practice of my beginnings, while continuing my research.

    Good luck with all the necessary Kime,
    Looking forward to exchanging,
    Greetings martial,
    Didier

  8. Hello, I am writing for advice.
    here, I have 61 years of excellent fitness, I practiced at 17 years 1 year aikido, there is 40 years 1 year of kung fu, there is 30 years of American boxing, unfortunately big financial problem and working hours have blocked me to get into karate, now that I'm retired I want to please me, but there is a flat (it's normal I'm blues guitar teacher) having a small retreat I am obliged to continue teaching, certainly with much less time but of course it is at the same time as karate clubs except one, but it offers kyokushinkai karate and I know it is the hardest, the teacher tells me they are smart enough to consider the beginner that I am, am not too old (I practice swimming bike walking, small fouting, abs, 2 sports hours a day on 4 days / week ), what do you think, while following your online courses?
    Thanks in advance

  10. Not your karate does not help me because I have 52 years of experience your karate is for novice. On the other hand by the karate in the living room the 3 / 4 of the Americans do this because they do not want to be confronted nor signs they already know everything and do not want to be hurt! this is very important. The choice of the USA people was as can be said in good French of the M .......! I am not the only one to say it unfortunately.

    Oss.

  11. All the people have really said everything about your professionalism and your motivation ...
    You participate in the emergence of karate. I am from Senegal where it is sometimes difficult to access some of your videos so if it could be easy to download it will help us even more ... ..

  12. Hello Bruno,
    Your blog about Karate is really unique and really allows us to progress.
    I also like your pedagogy and the clarity of your explanations.
    Thank you for the service you give us.
    Best regards.

  13. Sylvain-Michel Paradis at

    Thank you Bruno for your blog on karate and your valuable advice that you lavish with your videos. I practice karate since 6 months only and I'm already at my third graduation belt. My progress, I owe a lot to your videos in front of which I practice at home. I practice karate three times a week, which is relatively a lot, but the fact remains that it is not enough to progress and improve my techniques. The practice at home is essential and I am able to improve myself thanks to your precious advices. Thank you for taking the time to feed us with karate blog.net, karate clear and net! Of course I aim for the black belt, which is not an end in itself but certainly an achievement!

  14. Hello Bruno,

    Thank you for creating the site "Karate-Blog.net", as your slogan says, it's really "karate clear and net".
    Thanks to your videos on basic Katas, I can work and progress at home at night, with simplicity and a lot of precision in your explanations, I progress quickly. I started karate last year in a small club of Haute-Savoie, our teacher is a passionate, he teaches voluntarily Karate Shotokan, he passed on his passion. Currently I work the kata heian nidan with your video, which is of great help to me.
    So Bruno, thank you again for sharing all your experience ... ..

  15. How to speak of Bruno to live up to his talent? I discovered Bruno on YouTube with the hope of finding someone who would help me to evolve in this martial art, which is karate.

    To my great surprise, I found that Bruno had all the answers to my questions, explained to me the kata in details and pushed back my own personal limits. Thanks to him, I was able to learn all Japanese terms in record time thanks to the Japanese lexicon that he presented to us. It gave me the taste to better know the story of Gishin Funakoshi. Without Bruno, I would still have done karate, but with his help, I reach levels that surprise me myself. I gained a great confidence in my means when I have to perform my katas in front of my Renshi and Sensei at the dojo in Canada (yes Bruno crosses the borders). I believe a little more in me now. As a katas and combat technician (the details matter to me!), Bruno brings me what is sometimes missing from the dojo, because black belts can not always answer the many questions I'm thinking about. I respect Bruno as much as my Renshi (7e dan) and my master 5e degree at the dojo.

    Even if the work is done from a distance and we do not know each other, Bruno helps me to evolve in this art and to find my own way. Thank you Bruno!

  16. Hello Bruno

    Your blog is just great and very rewarding and I appreciate your work and all the videos that are intended for all levels of the practitioner.

    Your blog has been a real source of success. In just two months and in addition to the training I did, I managed to have my green belt and that for my greatest happiness. Before I went green, I was a yellow belt, so I let you imagine this progression.

    I hope you continue to feed your blog and share your experience and passion for karate.

    Congratulations

  17. Hello Bruno,
    Great idea your blog; Unfortunately, I do not have the time to follow him regularly but I found very interesting explanations that sometimes serve me for my classes.
    Long live KBN! And congratulations for your journey!

  20. I think this blog is good for beginners and instructors:
    this will allow beginners to train alone at home and instructors to develop an instructional that will allow them to work with any type of student

  21. Hello Bruno

  22. Thank you for sharing your passion with us all.
    Not being able to go to all the training of the club I enjoy finding you in my office and learn and deepen each technique step by step.I will soon pass my yellow belt and I really learned heian shodan and nidan thanks to you. Your pedagogy is excellent and the atmosphere is nice ....

    Thank you

  23. thank you for the valuable help that brings your site, I start since the fall and watch your videos allows me to better understand and assimilate some new basic movements that I would not have assimilated well during my course .... the videos are very explicit, it's really a good job! thank you!

  24. Hello Bruno
    I have always wanted to do karate and life has made
    I waited 51 years to start !!!!!
    I am told that there is no age and I start
    I registered in a club and I do 4 hours a week! It's hard but I'm happy and I regret not having done it sooner !!!!! I watch your videos and thank you very much it helps me a lot to do my home exercises! It is really very well explained !!!!
    Congratulations to your site !!!!

  25. Nice and very interesting site karate. blog.net, I am black belt since 1991 and I have more than 30 years of continuous practice behind me. The majority of my friends are karate teachers or black belts. After the training, during the 3 half time (often on Friday evening), we have already discussed several times karate.blog.net (Among others the rotation on the heels in the katas, the use of the gravity to move etc ...). The internet has made it possible to decode the katas bunkai and the site "Karate clear and net" is part of this valuable information that is good to discover or rediscover to progress in karate. Thank you Bruno.
    Pat.

  26. Your videos are great and make me progress too. Having a very busy schedule I can not go every week to the dojo. So your help is very useful to me. And so yes, sometimes I train at home.
    Thank you for sharing your / our passion.

  27. Hello Bruno,
    The explanation of your course allows everyone to meet around the same passion sport in respect of simplicity.

Your videos as well as your pedagogy is a precious support to put the key elements of karate in a serious atmosphere without taking itself seriously. All the people who share with me this passion congratulate you on the quality of your pedagogy.
