The kata can help you in learning how to fight and defend yourself; but it’s only when you really learn to fight that you fully understand the kata.
I now pretty much believe this: as I’ve trained further and worked with people to develop the Urban Krav Maga System, I’ve actually begun to understand properly the kata I did for many years as a karate-ka. Not just the postures, the steps, the feet and hips positioning, but specific moves that seemed obscure and pointless when practiced in the abstract.
This Online DVD Instructional shows a number of self-defence techniques from Urban Krav Maga and how their roots can be found in karate kata, particularly those of Goju Ryu.
The course is delivered by: me, Stewart McGill, Urban Krav Maga Chief Instructor and former 3rd Dan in Goju Ryu; and Jim McEvoy, veteran Martial Artist and 5th Dan in Goju Ryu.
