Stepping Hard & Reading – Karuhat Intensive Day 6 from Sylvie von Duuglas-Ittu on Vimeo.

This session was a bit of an emotional struggle for me. I just could not get myself, at this point, to step properly on the kick, so I was losing distance. It was a huge wake up call though to a very important element in Karuhat’s style, the punctuated kick at the right moment. He introduces a kind of half gallop switch step which comes off of the forward check to partially address this distance issue. Karuhat also works with me on the body shot to kick fake/extension designed to punish and control against the ropes, which is a beautiful technique example of his elastic attack.
