Volume 8: Sparring Techniques.
Shotokan Karate sparring techniques are taught by Shihan Kenneth Funakoshi on Volume 8, through basic introductory drills and free style sparring. Shotokan Karate is comprised of 26 katas, each with their own emphasis on fast and slow, or controlled and powerful movements. Shotokan Karate-Do, the way of the empty hand, is one of the most popular martial arts styles taught around the world and is loaded with hard hitting traditional Shotokan tournament ready techniques. Shotokan Karate focuses on kata, punches, hand and elbow strikes, knee strikes and kicks. Shotokan uses lower positions, rooted in basic stances, the modern techniques emphasize speed and power, as well as the character of the student and their respect for others.
