Goju Ryu Karate
Kumite within karate has different diversities and they aim to train the karatek in different fighting conditions based on the karateka´s grading.
First of all we have Kihon Kumite. Within this type , the attacker and defender know exactly which movements to make as they are a pre-arranged serie of attacks and blocks. Within Kihon Kumite there are different series each with their own difficulty level.
A second is called Bunkai Kumite. Within Bunkai the defender performs parts of the kata, blocking and countering the attacker. Within our style of karate , the kata itself is clearly seen in the bunkai
Last but not least is free sparring , there are no pre-arranged movements here and both karateka´s try to score well controlled points againts his sparring partner.
