Product Description

Steve Flores teaches you over 40 karate sparring kumite techniques. He begins with an overview of stance and footwork then teaches you dozens of ways to score in light-contact or no-contact sparring using the reverse punch, backfist, ridgehand, spinning backfist, front kick, roundhouse kick, side kick, back kick, drop kick and crescent kick. Through the use of solo and partner practice drills, you'll learn to combine footwork, strikes and kicks to score on your opponent. You'll also learn defensive kumite techniques to stop your opponent's attack and how to score with combination strikes and kicks. This DVD is a thorough and progressively taught introduction to the fundamentals of karate sparring.

I enjoyed this DVD. It contains some fundamental martial arts sparring concepts that can be used by beginners, but which can also be used for more advanced practitioners wishing to really work basic techniques in sparring. I definitely recommend this for martial artists who are just beginning to spar.

This dvd is unique because it's perfect to use as you practice. The techniques are divided into short segments. I have it on as I workout; stopping after each technique and working through it. There are 26 different sets of techniques as well as partner drills and footage of sparring. Many of the drills I hadn't experienced before. The techniques are not flashy, but will work in a match. Don't let the Shotokan title fool you, these techniques are usable and applicable in any style. I own several dozen sparring videos and would rate this video as the best because you can use it while you train and is not filled with psychological fluff.

This is an average Kumite instructional video. It is not well organized. It seems to be designed for a beginner.

Not a bad DVD, very informative and explained very well in detail..
I actually tried a couple moves from the DVD and was impressed on how the competitor didn't see the punch coming.. The Kumite at the end of the DVD was okay, they could have picked it up a bit more. The key to making any technique in this DVD to work is to practice... :)
