Technical video of month by Sensei Ishana Pérez
Kumitachi begins to study within our Plan of Estudies Kuubukan in 4th Kyu, see in the following link the technical program for this level:
The Kumitachi arising in this video, is not within the curriculum of the basic Kihon Kuubukan. All the elements of the basic training are undoubtedly present: displacement, Kamae, attack…
It is something very simple and yet very subtle, for example: cutting with the Kissaki (with the tip of the sword) looking for the jugular and the trachea of the attacker at his neck.
All these parts can be seen on the first block of 3 videos, showing the 3 basic phases: the Tsuki Jodan, the brass in Gedan and cutting to the neck looking for the above mentioned parties.
Another critical point is the refraction of the Tsuki by the Tori, which the Uke can do in Tsugi ashi as in Irimi Ashi. The one shown in Tsugi ashi.
The following video shows the Kumitachi in full.
