How to Counter-Attack your opponent in Karate | Olympians’ Tips


COACHES’ TIPS COUNTER-ATTACK I’d like to move on
now from the basics, gestures in the various
kumite items to the “jiu nippon unite” style. I’ll then show how
to counter-attack using the freestyle techniques
that I’ll demonstrate. These are linked to the techniques used in
competitions. To begin with, there’s the
middle range counter-attack in response to a “Kizami Tsuki”
punch with the lead arm. TIP 1. USED IN RESPONSE TO A
KIZAMI TSUKI PUNCH Next, there’s the upper
punch counter-attack to a middle range attack. TIP 2. USED IN RESPONSE TO A
MIDDLE RANGE ATTACK Next, the attacking
forward kick has to be neutralised in the middle
range. TIP 3. USED IN RESPONSE TO AN
ATTACKING FORWARD KICK In response to a kick
in the upper range, you have to do a foot-sweep
side kick, “Ashi Barai”, while getting in there. TIP 4. COUNTER A KICK TO THE
UPPER RANGE WITH AN ASHI BARAI You’ll be able to see all these techniques demonstrated
in the Olympic bouts. We’ve seen the most important
features of these techniques, and you should all be able to do them for yourselves
quite easily. COACHES’ TIPS
