Gohon Kumite – Five step sparring

Gohon kumite means five-step sparring and in general includes two main types – one a jodan attack defended by age-uke (rising block), and two a chudan attack defended by soto-uke (outer block). This video shows both attacks and defences. Gohon kumite is usually studied at the beginner level but there are more advanced versions of this partner work drill.
