Why are Basics so important?
In all forms of martial art, and for that matter - most arenas of sport that require skill, a participant's ability will only ever be measured by the quality of his or her basics. This is why we place such great importance on practice and the quest for perfection in Kihon (Basics). This page is dedicated to assisting with information pertinent to Kihon. For any new Karateka, this page should be your first "port of call" when studying the information within this web site. This page won't teach you the basics - that's for your Sensei to do. It will merely give you an idea what your Sensei is asking you to do in the Dojo.

We graciously and most humbly thank Master Kanazawa for granting us his generous permission to use sections of his book on this page of the web site.
