It is the main objectove of KIHON Karate to develop well-rounded black belts who can not only defend themselves, but also make a positive contribution to society. Not only do students achieve the status of black belt in Karate, but they should also strive to become academic and corporate black belts, and black belt employees. At KIHON Karate, the term "black belt" is more than a rank itself, it is a metaphor for personal excellence.
In KIHON Karate, 90% of training is done with a partner. This allows the student to develop proper body alignment and weight distribution to maximize one's power when striking. The extensive use of shields and pads is implemented to practice full-power kicks and punches while ensuring the safety of the participants. The techniques of KIHON, when performed to their fullest, incorporate punches, kicks, elbows and knees with shimewaza (chokes) and kansetsuwaza (joint locks) to incapacitate an opponent.
This is the heart of KIHON Karate; a style born of tradition, and taken to new levels of efficiency.
