Summary of a karate class
Karate uniform (dôgi) dressing (about 3 minutes)
Students participating to the Karate class will actually wear a Karate uniform.We will teach you how to wear it.
Greetings ( about 3 minutes)
The instructor will begin the explanations with the Kyokushin way of greetings, called “Osu”.The greetings consist in crossing your arms by the side of your ears and bending firmly. Before the training begins, we will take some time to explain how to sit straight to those who are not familiar to this posture.
Greetings at the beginning (about 1 minute)
The students will greet each other after sitting straight for a while and meditating.
Warm up ( about 5 minutes)
We will do a basic warm up.Jumping, stretching, warming up the joints and the neck, etc.
Basic training (about 15 minutes)
During the basic training we will use the sanchin-dachi stance, therefore we will begin with practicing this movement. (Because this movement may seem a bit complicated to beginners, we will also teach an easier version where they just have to place their feet shoulders width apart).You can choose one to two movements out of four (thrusting technique, backfist, knifehand strike, receiver of technique) and the instructor will teach you how to perform them. You will then choose two kick techniques and learn how to perform them as well.
Self-defense ( about 5 to 10 minutes)
The instructor will teach you one or two simple self defense techniques. In the Kyokushin style of Karate, deep breathing is an important part of the self-defense movements, so in order to teach you the movements, you will perform this part of the class in pairs.
Hitting on mitts (about 10 minutes)
You will be able to perform simple thrust and kick movements on mitts.You will use the techniques you just learnt by hitting on mitts.
The class will end with the Kyokushin style end greetings which consist in performing a ten punches thrusting technique.
