A Single Technique

If you can do one technique properly, you can do all techniques properly.

Techniques are the DNA of Karate. When you break down DNA, you find that it is made up of common building blocks in different arrangements. When you break down techniques, you will find the same.

So, if you can perform one technique properly, you can apply what you know to every other technique. It is just a matter of breaking the techniques down and understanding them.

I like to teach shuto uke as a base techniques. This is just my personal preference.

Naihanchi Shodan and Nidan are basically pure DNA. If you study them carefully, the key to all other techniques will be revealed.
