Training Exercises

 

Broseley Goju Kan emphasises the importance of variety in its Karate training. Whilst understanding the importance of Kihon and repetition, too much straight line repetition of basic techniques is avoided unless it has significance to a subsequent part of the training. Techniques are practiced and improved by all grades with effectiveness always rated in importance over style. The training exercises and drills used by Broseley Goju Kan are varied, explored and adapted in many ways whilst keeping the essence within the traditional methods of Goju Ryu Karate training. Training sessions might include a mixture of Kumite, Tracking, Kakie, belt work, pad work, partner work, conditioning, and grappling.


A lot of the training exercises involve partner work with the focus on realism. Techniques are varied in force to suite the exercise but are always practiced to strike at practical targets from the correct fighting distance. Each training session tries to combine a mixture of physical exertion with technical development.
