You're welcome to visit my website if you want to learn more about Karate: http://www.karatebyjesse.com Reply Karate and Science! Very good! Reply 06:01 is also a very good advice for a certain kind of teenager. Reply Excellent video, I am definitly incorporating this in my training today, Oss Reply I would say the bounce depends on the style and stance. JKD we kind of bounce back and forth between our legs Reply Love your video as usual bro! I didn't know you could do 10 push ups so fast haha. By the way, what does your belt say? I see Japanese words on it kinda like Ryu's belt in Street Fighter. Reply why did you forget to mention about Bruce Lee Reply Joe Lewis stood still and let the other person come to him. Reply Excellent excercise and simple easy to follow explanation. Oos. Reply sous titre arabe please,and good continious Reply You have helped me win so many tournaments Reply Nice, clear explanation. Well done! Reply Thank you :)) Reply 👍👌👌👌 Reply I’m curious how you feel about bouncing and Tai Chi Chuan? I understand the value in it but I can’t seem to visualize it. Reply Thank you, Jesse! This exercise seems very good for people like me, who usually get static with the legs movements. Reply Thank you very much for this free but valuable information!!!!!!!!!! Reply Hi Jesse thanks for the great vids , can you do some on stretching please ? I have recently returned to MA as a nearly 50 yr old , so its been a lot of years off and i want to know how far it is possible to get my splits ? Reply Great video, especially the dropping concept. In my martial art, we are taught to sink to draw power from the ground, and this totally connects the concept of sinking and mobility for me. Thanks!! Reply Hey Jesse enkamp can you make a video on how to improve jab cross please Reply Please Jesse sub en español in all videos please Reply My movement is better than anyone’s in this comment section Reply I always think why bounce, it is was a waste of energy. Reply Thank you so much m(__)m Reply I always follow this rules when I do kumite. Reply Thanks a lot ! <3 Reply Your videos are awesome. I love your channel. You are a real sportsman. 👍 Reply Whether you like or not, you're gonna have to go jump up. You can not just drop drop drop until you're in a duck walk position. Well, you can if you are on the top of flight of stairs. Reply Oss Sensei! Sensei do you have any suggestions on how to practice kicks like( Mawashi giri , ura-mawashi giri, ashi barai or some other moves which puts pressure on one foot while doing) in CONCRETE FLOOR. In India 80% people don't have dojo so we practice on road side, fields or a place with concrete floor and we call it our dojo. And as we are practicing bare foot, we peep our foot skin of while doing these trainings.I would be very happy if you suggest me any options.Thank You Sensei. Oss! Reply Im 15 and i weight 75kg.Should i bounce? Reply I don't bounce. Reply Im 225 muscular build my feet is planted on ground lol i often get hard counter attack because of this, do you have any tips for heavy set guys like me? I do kyokushin tho Reply Tanks master!! OSS!! Reply When I think about staying in motion during a fight, my motivations are threefold. The first is to shift levels. If you have grappling game, you want to be able to attack the upper body, the middle body, and the legs, and by shifting levels, you threaten all three. The second is to threaten the opponents flank. It's easier to hit them from behind than it is to hit them head on if you can, so, by rotating around your opponent, you threaten their flank. The third is to load your body with kinetic energy that you can channel into strikes, which you achieve by rotating your body. If you're standing still, you need to pull power from your musculature to deliver strikes, but if you're already in motion, you can just reach out at touch them, and channel all the kinetic energy you're already carrying into your opponent. I learned these principles through my training in Freestyle Wrestling and Capoeira. Though, I also have training in No-Gi BJJ and Muay Thai. Reply Close your eyes and let Christopher Walken teach you about Karate! Reply A good drill. I will try but no push-up. ha ha .. Thank you. Reply Despite not having any martial arts training, I still enjoy watching these these videos to learn something interesting if I ever get into a fight. Never got into one (and I plan to avoid it ) but ya never know. Reply The problem is I am a 85 kg bodybuilder and tire out quickly when bouncing even though I do a lot of cardio Reply So do people in the point footwork style bounce as well? They probably do as well. Though I'm learning alot from your video. Thx Reply Very nice ! Reply Awesome Thanku so much for guidance Reply @jesse – Where can I buy those Seishin gloves!? Reply wow this tips make my day thanks man! Reply Great video, excellent exercise for it….. Naturally i do not have an affinity for bouncing around, stationary comes more naturally for me. But i think with this exercise, with practice, will help. Thanks!! Just curious, what dan are you in Karate? and what style of Karate do you teach? Reply Thanks Jesse, great video as usual! Love the tips and rope exercise, I'll use that one for sure👍 Reply Can you teach to fight? (Im brown belt ) tall but not very strong 🙁 Reply Esse exercício foi uma ótima sugestão!!! Excelente vídeo!!! Parabéns!!! Tenho 1,62 metros e 57 Kg!!! Muito útil esse conteúdo será para mim!!! Obrigado!!! Reply Thats good thank u for technic Reply Sensai how can I improve my kata because I practice a lot but their are any improvement in my kata Reply "oopppss see what I did there? MISTAKE! what happens when you do a mistake? PUSH UP" XD Reply Your defination helped me to achieve success. I am very grateful to you jesse Reply Jesse, valeu por ter colocado em Português, isso vai me ajudar muito. OSS. Reply Iam from nepal iplay sitro ryu karate Reply Really useful thanks sensei oss Reply Awesome sensie,, osss👊👊 Reply I like that "Ten push up" 😂😂 Reply Hi Jesse. I get what you're saying but I think it's very important that beginners understand that it's not bouncing up and down like a video game character but rather from place to place so you're making use of the fighting space you have or changing the angle of approach to create doubt and uncertainty in your opponent's mind about how you're actually going to attack. Ultimately we want them to hesitate in some way to open up opportunities to strike or taken down etc. In Kendo we avoid bouncing as much as possible because we need to be able to use the full range of motion of our left calf to drive forward, however we still use this dynamic approach to footwork of manipulation of distance, centre line and timing to create clear opportunities to strike. So this kind of 1- 2 timing of the movement is important as opposed to both feet being off the ground at once. Would you agree with that from the perspective of your discipline ? Reply Lol. Should have watched the full video before my long comment. Apologies I see you've covered these points now. Top job. Reply I talk about the same examples when I teach "mine" students:)) It is nice to here it sensei. Osu! Reply I love your videos. Very informative and practical Reply Superb sir…. A big bow to you. Very very informative, very useful and practical Reply Very good tips and excellent pronunciation buddy. Thanks a lot Reply Nice Jesse Reply You move pretty good and that's that's a pretty awesome idea I never thought of that I'm going to try that when I can Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
