You cannot be off your guard even a second. This is a very serious t raining method. If you do it for enjoyment, you can get injured. Jiyu-kumite is not designed for deciding victory or defeat. It is the practice of offense and defense with the development of the techniques.
You can not improve if you always think about victory. As a matter of fact, you should not excite or stimulate your opponent more than needed when you practice kumite. You have to respect any opponent you have when you practice. In kumite, it is forbidden to attack your opponent with direct contact.
As a principle, any technique you use will have to be stopped before it connects. However, when you are in defense, you have to practice as if you are actually being attacked. Any injuries in kumite are usually because of carelessness. Especially common is the injury of fingers when the fist is opened. The fist needs to be firmly closed. Practicing using an open hand should be restricted until you improve enough. There are eight kyo opportunities to take advantage of when you attack: Instantaneous kyo.
Right before the opponent changes to the next movement. Right after the opponent has made a movement that was not effective. When the opponent lacks harmony between the techniques used and his mind, during both attack and defense.
When the opponent loses his balance when he makes a movement. Right before the opponent breathes in deeply. When the opponent is confused because of your movement. When the opponent is daunted by your tactics or ability. The five unguarded moments you have to prevent when you are in defense: The unguarded moment in the mind.
The unguarded moment in the spirit. The unguarded moment in the technique. The unguarded moment in the appearance. The unguarded moment in the act. The same as in normal life, if you behave badly, you have to take responsibility for your actions. If you use techniques that do not follow the rule, that is faulty.
Jiyu Ippon Kumité
More than anything else, unlike the majority of other karate websites, this page is primarily dedicated to training itself; that is, Karate-Do as a vehicle for holistic development. The opponents are face to face. The importance of kata to kumite cannot be overemphasized. If techniques are used unnaturally or in a forced way, posture will break down.
Types[ edit ] Since the word "kumite" refers to forms of sparring, it covers a vast range of activities. In traditional Shotokan karate , the first type of kumite for beginners is gohon kumite. The defender steps back each time, blocking the attacks and performing a counterattack after the last block. This activity looks nothing like the jiyu kumite or "free sparring" practiced by more advanced practitioners, which is far closer to how karate would look if used in a real fight, especially because it is not choreographed. Types: Ippon kumite - one step sparring, typically used for self-defense drills Sanbon kumite - three-step sparring, typically used to develop speed, strength, and technique    Gohon kumite - five-step sparring, pre-arranged attack and counter exercises Kiso kumite - structured sparring drawn from a kata Jiyu kumite - free sparring Delivering strikes[ edit ] Many schools feel it is important that karateka "pull their punches". Karate training is designed to give its practitioners the ability to deliver devastating power through techniques like punches and kicks.
