Hello and welcome to karate-blog.net, clear and net Karate. Today we’ll talk about a position: Kokutsu Dachi, which is the position on the folded rear leg. For several items we talked about zenkutsu Dachi is an attack position, Finally, more attacks that defense which is in fact the position of the front leg bent. And now you’ll see the position of the folded rear leg. We also saw the position hachiji Dachi which is a standby position. We also saw the position hachiji Dachi which is a standby position. There zenkutsu Dachi and Kokutsu are fighting positions … we will not say of actual combat … Rarely will Kokutsu or zenkutsu in a real fight. This can happen, but they are learning more positions. So Kokutsu Dachi is the basic position on the back leg. Let’s see the differences from zenkutsu Dachi because these are positions that are completely different, even opposite. So, I’m not going to talk about it for hours. I will show you the position, will the detail and then we will work on this position. some educational advancing Ayumi Ashi Ashi Iki and backwards. As you feel a little better position by the moving you because a position … when it is inert when it is not moving, it does not serve great thing. So I am back to you to see well my feet. The Kokutsu Dachi position will be a position on the back leg. You are resting on the back leg and feet are at the right angle. Okay ? Compared to the position where I was zenkutsu Dachi forward and my feet were parallel, roughly … the rear one is always a little … one does not have ankles that can make feet look ahead all the time. So the back foot was turned fully forwards. here And feet slightly open to approximately the width of the hips. Now the feet are aligned on the front foot and you are back onto the leg there. I start from that side. You go there … the leg bent. Strongly bent, at least more than one. This is never tense, she’s still a little bent, we will see just now why. The leg is then folded and feet are 90 °. Then I’ll give you a picture because often, beginners, whether or zenkutsu Kokutsu, They are struggling to keep balance and they do not understand why you have to have is legs apart or open feet. I give you a picture with a book. You take a book or a comic with a well hardcover. You put it like that. What is she doing ? It falls to one side or the other because you have all placed on the same stop. If you open, you ask, it makes sense. There, we will find ourselves in the zenkutsu position with legs open. Here, open the book and pose. Okay ? Now you take your book, you turn the other way and you open it. And you put it, like this: it takes. That is the position Kokutsu Dachi. It is opened, I have a leg in one direction, another at 90 and I hold it in position. So, We continue to detail the position. The position that you are not put on the back leg with the idea of coming to sit on the heel. You see ? You heel there behind. Like if you have a stool that is embedded in the heel and you just sit on it. You just sit on this leg. You sit on the leg behind, one sits on. By cons, when I say we sit on it, do not go out as the buttocks. Always keep your back straight, neither backward nor too forward or too go like this. Same as zenkutsu Dachi, the basin: it must be flat, it must be able to arrive in one direction or the other. He must be able to move like that. Okay ? So it remains … the position like this. There, you can train to go down a little bit to build muscles because it pulls a little on the thighs, but hey, it’s a bit the aim of working Kihon. Is to work the bases to train the body. So, sometimes, you have to relax a little, and then to muscle quadriceps and then feel the positions. So the position is this. Why should we keep the front leg bent? That’s not all. I rely on this, why that one is not stretched? This does not go any further. I stand as well. So be aware that the position there, the front leg extended like this, your knee is very vulnerable. It is vulnerable, already because if you have an attack … Imagine, when I’m like this, if I have an attack like this … I’m not telling you. There, if I take a Yoko Geri in the leg, knee, it breaks. When it is like this and I take Yoko Geri, I’ll feel it, but … he already typed over before it folded in the other direction. If it’s like this, I will have very bad. Another thing: if you look at the knee joint. here When it is like that, if you take your ball, you can not move it. When the joint is tight, then the ball, you can move. So if you can zoom, you will see, but try it and see. Once the leg is stretched, the ball can come out, it is no longer in its housing there. Soon there will be a strain on the patellar tendons there, Soon there will be a tension, the ball will come to rest in its housing and therefore, she can not move. So this is what happens when you are tense, even if you do not have a direct attack, or you may hurt you when you are going to want to move. You’re like that, you want to send an attack, you should turn … if you have bad habit of turning up soon and that the knee is like that, what could happen is that the ball comes out. And there, it hurts. Even if it recovers logically. This must be able to recover, but it really hurts when the ball starts to come out. So, be very careful. To protect the knee, it is still a little bent. I’m not going to go into detail on that, but the knee is slightly bent, the only heel asked. This support is more at this level, on the forefoot. This is great almost flat, but not like this. Have more to support the idea, we must slightly contracting the calf to lean into the ground. At the other working muscles: there glutes there that contract, same. To support in the ground, is contracted to sink into the ground. The back remains straight. In the position, it is 3/4 of the face. You’re not completely turned like that. Do not pull your knee. The knee is opened there and you are 3/4. You are not filmed that way, we will see in moving that beginners often tend to turn too and return the foot before The foot is right. The feet are really 90 °. When we say 90 °, approximately. That’s, the inner edge is 90 °. The foot and knee are slightly turned backward than forward. There is not the same position. We must open a little more. The joints, the weight is just about here compared to where you were zenkutsu shifted forward. There you are slightly staggered backward. It’s not huge. Back slightly. What could we say? The alignment of the joints. In the ideal, you will have the ankle, knee, hip and shoulder on the same vertical line, so. Often it is a bit more before, after all depends. If one is in a defensive phase, maybe it will be a little backwards and then we will be as well. If one goes a step forward, the weight is shifted slightly forward. So this is not the millimeter. At the opening, basically, it is like zenkutsu Dachi. If I put my knee here, I must have about two to three fists. Normally, about two fists. here the position. So we ended detailing the position, now we will use the move. So I’ll start moving backwards and then I’ll move on. It recedes. You get into the position Kokutsu Dachi. Arms in front, we keep open hands … whatever. Now we go back. Look, I recoil when both feet are one next to the other, I have not installed, I stayed at the same level. And then I back my leg opening. I come here and I back leg opening. I just fall on it, it’s as if I fall over. I receives, it serves me in this leg: to receive me. here I am always with the heel aligned with the front foot … here Now I say. The same principle. Will be detailed later. I move back. I move back So when I advance, it must be very careful beginners. You will have a tendency to do that: you go … and you tend each time to turn because you think you are aside in Kokutsu Dachi In your mind, you are once in one direction and once in the other. Here ! So, not to turn you really have in your mind, you thought to go to. My opponent is ahead. Send my leg forward and I open another. and I want to stay, my mind before. I send my body before. Although I still resting on the back leg, I send my body forward, not sideways. When I fell, like: I back, but … I have an attack and just, I want to remember, I want to block and want to continue after. I remain forward even if I am resting on the back leg, my mind before. My opponent, it is before me. I step back and I advance. Come on, then, you will follow me. You put on a line. In front of Ichi ni When you move forward, both feet are one next to the other and there, the continuous and the other foot: I open. I move back , I open. I move back I open I step back, I open. And I think to stay ahead Ichi ni San It is a rotation of the hips. When I’m there, it’s my hip opens. ni San Ichi Ni San Ichi NI San Ichi NI San Ichi NI San Ichi Ni San I’ll put myself in the other direction for you to visualize some of both sides. Ichi Ni San Ichi NI San Ichi Ni San return Ichi NI San Then after, you will have some people who Kokutsu low as Dachi. This is not especially bad. After that, I think it depends on the people. here If you are very low, but the position there, you are able to do something, that’s fine. If when you are there, you are still stuck, you can not even lift the leg, I do not see much use. Okay ? For me, Kokutsu Dachi: there it should move and send a hip Mae Geri. It must be able to react very quickly. The aim is this: it is to absorb an attack to rebound. Okay ? So after that, I will not say it’s bad, because it sees much competition. It’s more beautiful, but good for me Kokutsu Dachi is the position like this: not too open and not too low. You could stay when doing the Kihon. You go down well on your positions for the part musculature, weight training and all that. Then, in the Katas, when you are at Kata, it is not lower than that. OK ? Come on, resumes. Ichi. well is opened and especially we stay, we look there. NI I move back. Ichi Ni I advance. Ichi Ni People turn. Ichi Ni I stand by that. Come on, I fell and I advance. Ichi You can always stay in the same direction. It is for you to see a bit technical. Finally, you can decompose. Ni Ichi Ni San Ichi Ni San Yame Yasme Come on! It is useless that we go further. Standing there, you can work alone. Once you have gained much, what is needed is to really try to work without putting technique at first. Because as soon as you go to technical, you’ll think your arm and you will think that you are there with your arms and you no longer think below. You will climb back down, I know how you do. So, think about already, sign in with the ground at the position. As I say to you, well anchored to the ground and think about going ahead. We will review when we do Kokutsu techniques. we will rework the position here and I will detail you travel Ayumi Ashi Ashi and Iki.
