Kaeshi Ippon Kumite

"Kaeshi Ippon Kumite" (attack and counter one-step kumite) shares a sibling relationship with "Kihon Ippon Kumite" (one-step kumite) and the objectives of both are basically the same.

 

"Kaeshi Ippon Kumite" combines the technical abilities developed through "Tanren Kumite" (training kumite) and the patterns of movement acquires through "Kihon Ippon Kumite" (basic one-step kumite).

 

The aim of this type of kumite is to develop agility and speed when initiating a technique.

 

Execution Method

Like "Kihon Ippon Kumite", the defender (ukete) must carefully observe his opponent and react accordingly the very instant that his opponent begins to move forward and properly block the attack by stepping back. Then, the defender (ukete) instantly steps forward while launching a counter-attack. At this time, the attacker (semete) steps back or to the side and blocks the defender's counter-attack, following with a final counter-attack as in ""Jiyu Ippon Kumite" (free style one-step kumite) and a "Kiai". Both attacker and defender position themselves in free -sparring stance after final counter-attack was performed by initial attacker.

 

Kaeshi Ippon Kumite should always be practiced from both left and right sides.

 

Characteristics

Major characteristics that distinguish "Kaeshi Ippon Kumite" from other Kumite are as follow:

  1. The initial attacker delivers the final counter-attack

  2. Attacker (semete) launches his attack directly from "Shizentai Hachiji Dachi" position

  3. The attacker (semete) would be free to use his left or right hand, or "Gyaku Zuki" (reverse punch), as long as the strike was aimed at the location that was stated. If, however, the attacker intends to use a "Geri" (kicking technique) he must inform his opponent of the type of kick that he will be used.

  4. The defender (ukete) delivers the counter-attack moving one step forward. In other type of kumite the counter-attack will be executed from the position where the block was performed by defender (ukete)

 

Benefits

One of the most important factors in Martial arts is leg movement. Training "Kaeshi Ippon Kumite" will help developing the leg strength, agility and speed of movement

 

Please note that older practitioners should exercise with caution as this training is quite strenuous (hard, difficult and exhausting)
