Lee's Focus Mitt Drills

by Iain Abernethy

“Modern training equipment allow us to train in ways the past masters could not. In particular, focus mitts allow us to hit at angles and with a level of realism that traditional striking tools such as the Makiwara can’t match. In this DVD, Lee Taylor shows a number of focus mitt drills that allow us to practise close-range realistic bunkai complete with impact. These cleverly designed drills correspond to each of the five Pinan / Heian kata and will develop tactical positioning (use of the angles in kata), limb-control (use of hiki-te, muchimi, etc) and impact. Combined with solo-kata, bunkai training and live practise, these pad drills “complete the circle” and show just how pragmatic the Pinan / Heian series can be. I’ve been asking Lee to make this DVD for a while because I know just how popular these innovative drills will be with students and instructors alike. The drills are explained in a very straightforward and easy to understand manner. They are great “plug and play” drills that are easy to adopt and will add value to your practise and teaching. Highly recommended!”
