Kihon Sono Ni - Basic Kata Number Two

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, the main difference between the first and second Kata are the kicks. In the first Kata the kicks are all straight (Mae Geri) Front Snap Kicks but the second Kata introduces the roudhouse kick (a circular technique) to the back kick (Ushiro Geri). This combination helps the students to connect/flow a straight technique to round technique, thus learning how to vary their angle of attack/approach.
