Karateka : Ne laissez pas fuir votre énergie (Nigé) [karate-blog.net]

January 13, 2020

Hello and welcome. I’m Bruno Bandelier, the Professor of Karate of the net. And today I want to talk about a concept, which we have already spoken in a video called “Nige”. “Nige” or “Nigue” I do not know how it is pronounced. I think this is “Nigue”. This notion, which actually corresponds to a leak. A leak of a body part compared to the technique. So I would like us to hear about it in more detail, because… someone started a debate on the internet. And so, here, it fuels the debate. So I would like to explain a little further. So “Nige”, it does not mean: turning on heels, or anything. I had made you a video in rotation on the heels, to avoid precisely the “Nige”. “Nige”, that means: flight back, that is to say: from the moment you have a body part which goes contrary to the technique, which is called “Nige”. So, for example: in the early Heian Shodan, when you Gedan Barai, if you turn on tiptoe, that are 90% of people. Here is what happens: you see ? I put myself here. My center of gravity is here. Okay ? My foot is here. Look what happens if I turn on tiptoe, I will do that. Okay ? My center of gravity is always in the same place, but my foot and all that part there, my leg fell. So that’s the “Nige ‘, because I have a body part that recedes. It’s in my technique, I have less strength. Since I have only the rotational force of my hips. If I turn on heels, that advocate the former is to turn on your heels. In any case, in Katas. So if I turn on heels, it’s like that. My body weight is there, my body weight is now here. So he advanced. And I do my rotation. The advantage is that I find myself having … So, I did not … you see? My body, all parts of my body go in the direction of the art. I do not have parts that are falling. The advantage I have is that I add … In the rotation, I add the translation of my center of gravity. Okay ? So then, instead of, to be like that and make … I’ll add, I add and I have more power in my fist. Here, I give an example with the fist. In the Kata is: Gedan Barai. But I have more power in my technique, because I added the rotational force to the translational force. There are some who say, “yeah, but in combat for example, we never turn on their heels. ” Good afternoon, this is to check, because it is not clear to see. What one does not in combat, that’s it: you do not turn on the spot like that. If you have someone there you go: go to him. You will direct you to him, maybe you push on the tip, not the heel. Depends after you. But you do not do that … Okay ? Do not back away. So when I say “you do not back” that’s what I explained in a post on Facebook: we can also imagine that back. Especially in technical as Gedan Barai, in the Bunkai. Here, it may very well be: I retreat to Gedan Barai. A kick that happens, I fell over, I do not advance it. After all depends on the Bunkai. But in the Kata, I remind you: Katas are nevertheless forms of learning, used to learn. So, do not always say: “Yeah, but this … no, because never does in combat.” Well, yeah. We never Oi Zuki in combat. You never will Oi Zuki in combat. It is a technique, really learning. Well, there is none. It is to learn to manage the balance of his body. When the technique, we are told: you turn on the tips. The problem of turning on the tips, is that we tend to rotate the feet, while it has to come from there. And then I have to send my technique there, I am sending the rotation and I send my body there. Okay ? I send my body there. I imbalance to go there. Here. I imbalance to go there. And here I have both, rotation of my hips, and at the same time, this translation that starts there. Okay ? If I do that, it’s not especially bad. But there is the “Nige”. So “Nige” This is not specific to the rotation. For example, if you make Mae Geri and you do that … well, then, there is the “Nige”. You see ? Because I hit, but I have my body which is there, I have a part of me that goes back, and there also, I have to stand behind. If I do that, there, it is good because even if I am forced to lean back slightly to be able to hit. But my center of gravity forward. Here I am: my center of gravity here. By the time I hit the center of gravity locks on my leg. Okay ? It is not back. OK ? So then, there is the “Nige”. Here there is not the “Nige”. “Nigue” or “Nige” I do not know. Okay ? So it’s “Nige”, the notion one: trailing behind, is not at all related to the rotation. But just related to our notions that part of the body actually is not involved in the technique. So I was told once too, saying: “But then at that moment: when one makes Hikite?” well, it could be considered that there is “Nige” since I’m here, I have a body part that recedes. Except that we can not consider it as the “Nige” because it’s part of a rotation and it has a stake of that arm in the rotation. All the body rotates, and therefore, this rotation is involved in the technique. There is no leakage. So that when I do that, I have my body leaky compared to the technique. When I do that, I have my body leaky compared to the technique. I have that part, leaky compared to the technique. It is not absurd. Me, what I told you in Heian Shodan, the fact of doing that, a realistic point of view, it is not at all absurd considering that this is a kick happens, and I turn to block. That is not aberrant. If by cons, considering that it is a choke and I want to take the person out there, well, to the limit, it is not unrealistic to turn on heels to take, to use his body weight, to take the person out there. You see ! So, may also explain the fact of turning on the tips or heels, according to its Bunkai. But the fact that originally, Katas: we had to turn on his heels, but not on the tip. Otherwise, there is the “Nige”. So after, everyone does as he wants. It was just to clarify why the Katas, you have to turn on your heels. So that’s why I made the video, you should be able to find it in my chain, seeking. It had to be the video that was called: “Rotation on the heels to avoid Nige.” I will not deny that I, there are three or four years, I turned on the tips, because I was like most people. And it is by meeting Sensei Jhonny Ganja, which, he explained the concept of Nige. And since I used actually, to turn on my heels in Katas. And suddenly, I find I have much more … I have a lot more power and efficiency in my techniques. So something else. I saw a video of someone explains he must turn on the tips because, well, he explained that: in fact, one must press on the ground, and when pressing the ground, He does that. When you press the floor, one comes to the front like that. In fact, I do not agree at all. When we press the soil, it presses on the foot. Not especially on the front, but we press on the whole foot. Okay ? The foot is super well done: one foot. It is a vault like that. The force down there, and comes on the vault. As a Roman arch. And suddenly, it was … The foot has the ability to absorb the weight. To absorb the weight, and even to have some … a certain elasticity for returning energy. But now, when you press on the floor, we press on the complete foot. But not on the front foot. Okay ? On the whole foot. And when we turn when one rotates on the foot, Then I saw in the video, the person to say: “No, it does not fall on the heels because the heels, it looks like this: we leave behind. ” No ! We do not do that. Of course we do not do that, then rotate. It’s not that at all! It starts here, is rotated. It starts here, it sends, and the heel serves as support. That, I’m using that support to turn me to rotate. Okay ?
I just push, as in most techniques in Karate, I just push my weight, my strength in the … in my heel to send to strike. Okay ? So there is depressed. If I turn on the tip, I have to raise it all. I have to lift my leg to turn. There, I have nothing else to do. I have nothing else to do, it goes from here, and I did that: really, this movement to do, when to leave. Otherwise, I do the same. I do the same: there, I have nothing else to do. And finally, it is much more effective. And train you, do it, do it … After you choose what you want, but do it to feel this movement. You will see that after you will have many more, even in conventional techniques: much more, the tendency to come crashing, to impinge into the ground with the heel. Okay ? What is very important in Karate. Here ! Listen! We will not go further. I hope you like this video. And she told you a little better what the “Nige”. “Nige”. And that … that is, After you choose what you want … And now, I give you my opinion. Now, what is good compared to combat, over everything. Well, everyone does as he wants, everyone learns what he wants. Well then, as usual, I need your feedback on the video. Know what you thought.

  1. Bonjour !!!
    Tout d'abord je trouve cette vidéo très intéressante !! 🙂 Merci pour le contenu que vous rendez accessible, je prend toujours plaisir à le regarder !!
    D'ailleurs, j'aimerais beaucoup voir d'autres maîtres d'arts martiaux participer à ces vidéos, afin de comparer les styles et cerner un peu plus la spécificité du karaté 😉 Peut-être dans un format différent de vidéo, mais voir comment le karaté se différencie des autres arts martiaux pourrait apporter beaucoup à cette chaîne, et pourrait éclaircir notre horizon martial et nos points de vues sur certains sujets !!
    De plus, étant un pratiquant de karaté Shito-Ryu, j'avoue que je suis en manque de "Neko ashi dachi" sur cette chaîne youtube 😉 J'aimerais comprendre ce qui change entre le shotokan et mon style, et le fait d'inviter un autre professeur de karaté sur tes vidéos afin de comparer les styles et développer ce sujet m'intéresserait beaucoup !!
    Merci, en espérant avoir été lu !! 🙂
    Bonne continuation !
