Blitzing for Ippon Kumite / Sparring - Backfist, Trap, Punch, and Roll
Here's our second blitz technique.
Remember in the last video, we taught that the blitz is a technique that you rush your opponent and overwhelm them with a fury of attacks. This technique starts with a backfist on the opposite side and you punch as you roll to the side.
One of the cool things about teaching karate is that many of the techniques we teach have a historic or nostalgic value to them. This blitz is no different. I used this blitz to score a point during my 4th degree Black Belt test securing a passing grade at the test.
