Hello and welcome to this new video on karate-blog.net, the karate clear and net. Today we’ll talk a fist technique called: Gyaku Zuki. So it is good since we previously worked on zenkutsu Dachi position. We also worked on the fundamental punch called: Choku Zuki. And Gyaku Zuki, we do it very often zenkutsu Dachi, So it falls very well. It’s a bit of a Choku Zuki where we will make the rear arm zenkutsu Dachi position. So Gyaku Zuki is a technique that is often used against attack. The competitors are very familiar Gyaku Zuki because it is very often used against attack. Why do we use a lot less in attack? This is because with Gyaku Zuki, you must, initially, position yourself, that is to say, take a position either zenkutsu Dachi, Kokutsu is Dachi, Fudo Dachi … whatever. You take a position and then you start your Zuki the rear arm by a rotation of the hip forward. So there is all this positioning phase, in attack … it is not easy. Your opponent will see you. You can do this by making a feint: kizami Gyaku, but the ideal is still against. Positioning, you do when you make your block or dodge, and then Gyaku Zuki to counter the opponent. So that’s why, Gyaku Zuki is very often used against attack, because it is very easy to do. It’s just a rotation of the hips, it’s very fast. So we will start the first exercises. I’ll back me for you to see well my feet. It will start in the position zenkutsu Dachi as we have seen. So I set zenkutsu Dachi: front left leg. You are doing the opposite: right leg before. Hip backwards. You put the guard arms. You pull out the Nukite behind, and there, you’re just moving your hip. You move the hip, fist stay there for now. Hip we advance. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. You always keep the same side, I’ll put it like for you to see well. I push on the back leg to send to my hip. Ichi, ni, san. You’ll notice I’m not: when I push forward, I will not back the knee before. I remain hip there, it’s this one that advance. One two three four five. although it draws from the ground. Go to the other side. left leg to front. The fist still there. Ichi, ni. although it strength, it stretches the iliopsoas before. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go. I set aside, you continue. It is necessary that you feel: I shoot in the leg and I advance my hip. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. Yame. So this rotation. You will grow in the leg and you must feel good strength in the legs. So you push for … we compare, the legs are closed so it advance the hip. Is closed inside. Come on, resumes. Tightening the groin while pushing in the leg. Ichi. For now, we keep the arm. Ni, san, shi. I set aside. One two three four five. From the front, the other leg. Ichi. There, it feels adductors that close. Ni, san, shi. Tightening the groin, this avoids having the leg that did this, or returning back. You will be in the middle. This one, we do not move. We come to lean on. Ichi. But the other, when I come back, I do not open it. I still face like that and I relax. I relax, it is backward and there, I push, I tend … I clench the muscles there. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. On the side. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. I return from the front. So now, instead of pushing gently there, it was good to feel the sensations in muscles. Now the energy goes from here and you go … we send. Hip, allowed to leave. It explodes. We start from here, back is strong, it explodes before. And the arm here, when the hip is, we do not let her go before, but when the hip is there, just to let him go ahead. It is allowed to go ahead. do not we turn the shoulder, it remains straight. Come on, we’re just kicking like that. The arm, you do not let him go ahead. It stops there. Ichi, ni, san, shi. Stop your technique before the end. Ichi, ni, san, shi. On the other side. Ichi, ni. You have to feel it comes from the belly. This is the belly strikes. Ichi, ni, san, shi. From the front, it changes sides. Ichi, ni, san, shi. Ichi, ni, san, shi. You did see ! I’m not looking to go ahead. I remain especially well in ground support, strength from there along the arm. Come on, again and now we will let the arm. So actually, it goes like this: everything comes from within, when I turn the shoulders turn simultaneously. Therefore, the whole body rotates together. Rotation and then … the energy share in the arm and at the same time it passes down the leg. This is done at the same time. I’m getting the shoulder along the thigh, forearm at the same time as the calf, I lock the fist and at the same time, I push the heel. This is … Much like we saw in Jodan Age Uke, it’s a bit the same way. I will start from the front. So even principle, allowed to leave. Contraction and relaxation after contraction to collect the energy back. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. I told you just now: Gyaku Zuki, on offense, it’s not easy. Because there will require that your opponent is very close to you, and is rarely near you. When you are in front, you will notice you. We must approach you, you position then do Gyaku Zuki. But this attack, it is not easy apart to do it with a good fake. For against, against, it’s fine. Come on, continue. Always the same movement. It is left from the stomach and the arm at the last moment It’s not the arms apart is that the hip part. When tightening the groin, she left. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. So the principle is always Choku Zuki: the fundamental punch. I have the arm that turns at the last moment and the shoulder that turns the other way at the last moment. We put the force here. On arrival, you must have the force between the legs to be well stable ground and here for that energy can go down and down the leg. Come on, the other leg. Trip well fist here. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. On the other side. Keep always the same arm. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. Yame. We will continue so a little more dynamic. That is to say that we will not specifically hopping, but be much more flexible, it is positioned and strikes. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. You did see ! I start as I stop, I slightly opened and knock. Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku. Yame. What we do now, we will continue as I told you. For Gyaku Zuki, there is a positioning phase: I take a position, and a phase I put Zuki So we will be on guard and will position by kizami Zuki. So we will kizami in Zuki Zuki Gyaku zenkutsu and then on site. Ichi, ni. San, shi. Ichi, ni. San, shi … We put aside. You will push on the leg. You do Yori Ashi, you advance. You push on the leg to kizami Zuki to go well in Ayumi position. This is not what I am asking you We just before Ayumi and there, the rear arm. I reject a second time on the leg, but now I hold my leg in front, so I want to advance. As it is blocked, it is the hip that fits and the first shot … and I push, I’m going slightly up my leg, and second knock. I start like this. Ichi, ni. San, shi. Ichi, ni. San Shi …. We will switch to the other arm. I put myself in front of you. So before I hit and I turn. I pushed twice. One. Two. One. Two. Ichi, ni. San, shi. Ichi, ni. San, shi … We change. So, when I hit kizami, it would really, I send the hip there and then … When I’m up, I’m not like that. I always face my opponent is there. One. Two. A: I advance two: I rotated. Ichi, ni. San, shi. Ichi, ni. San, shi …. Yame. Yasme. We will then stretch the calves and the iliopsoas. When you go Gyaku Zuki, should be systematically prepared. You stretch the calf, the iliopsoas and adductors since it is they who work a lot and they end up tense; since in work force, the muscles tend to tense up, you having difficulty turning the hip. Your hip will hang because it will lock and the muscles will remain tense. You will not be able to return backward and then you will lose in amplitude, efficiency … you really have to be as relaxed as possible. Come on, stretching the calf. To stretch the calf, foot below … if you’re like that, you do not stretch the calf. The walk below, I go down. The leg, the more tense as possible, the calf hung on the femur there, and on the foot. So you have to stretch the two joints to stretch the calf. We are going down. For now, we do not mind there, even if we look a little it does not matter. One, two, three, four, five and six. Now, it remains in position. We can go up a little if it lacks flexibility. And then we will tilt the pelvis, buttocks back here to stretch the iliopsoas, and we try to recover without arching. It is not pulls back, I am right. I keep the abs a little tense and I pull the pelvis backwards. Your iliopsoas is hung on the femur to the pelvis and lower back. well … it relaxes you pull. On the other side. I begin calves, I shoot well behind. One, two, the taut leg, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and ten. The position here, I come and I flop buttocks, I just inward there to stretch well before. Yame. We will now stretch the adductor, so here we will to hachiji Dachi. You go down, arms inside and is opened. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. I hope you like this video. It’s hot, I’m sweating. I hope you like this video. Check back often work. Do the exercises and do stretching at the end in order to feel your hips moving. It is important to work on Gyaku Zuki because one feels really well the movement of the hips once it has worked well. Thank you. Feel free to put comments below this video, below the article.
