Kihon Sono Ni - Second Kata (Formal Movement Exercise)

H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts and Citizen Schools students have been practicing the second Kata (Form or Formal Movement Exercise) which will be part of our WOW! performance.

The second Kata in Japanses is called " Kihon Sono Ni" or Basic Kata Number Two. While both Kata One and Kata Two are offensive Katas the students learned an important difference between them. Kata Number Two differs from the first with its three kick combination in the middle of the form. The front snap kick (Mai Geri), roundhouse kick (Mawashi Geri) and back kick (Ushiro Geri) combination teaches the students how to connect or "flow" a straight, to a round, to a back technique.
