Nijushiho - "Twenty Four Steps"

Nijushiho introduces new techniques including:


There are two kiai points in Nijushiho:

  1. On the jodan kensei (upper level palm feint).
  2. On the second to last movement of the kata, a combination jodan tsuki/chudan tsuki (upper level and lower level punch) that is performed in sanchin dachi (hour glass stance).

Demonstration of Kata

Demonstration of Kata Variations

Apart from the common "Omote" (front facing), way of performing kata (as shown above), kata can also be performed, "Ura" (opposite), "Go" (defensive) and "Go no Ura" (defensive opposite). Students will be required to be perform kata variations in advanced gradings. Sensei Kase introduced these variations explaining that performing kata ura, go, or go no ura is closer to actual application in real fighting circumstances.

Sorry, the demonstration video is not available.
