Traditional karate training focuses on kata as a source of conditioning and transmission of the techniques. Dedicated and proper practice of the kata is also the building block of true karate spirit. Additional training such as kihon renshu, ippon kumite and hojo undo are complimentary training aides to the kata.
Kihon Renshu is the basis of building the karate body. Building upon Kihon Renshu is zenshin kotai and ippon kumite. The techniqnues of kihon renshu, zenshin kotai and ippon kumite in Seibukan have all been derived from kata techniques or their theories of movement.
Hojo Undo, Kote Kitae, and Makiwara training prepare the body for hard training and combat.
Tuite, or the grappling techniques of Okinawan Karate are integral to the overall training and are not an art unto itself such as jiu jitsu. Tuite is akin to Chinese Chin Na and focuses on separting muscle and tendon from bone by pushing, pulling, twisting, grabbing and locking in order to incapacitate an opponent.
