Tips to take jodan no kamae
I have a busted left knee and I don't know if I should do Jodan or not. And any tips on how I should prepare myself for jodan.
Thank you in advance for all the help. :DAnswer:
Thank you for your question. Now you have a teacher, correct? If you don’t it would be very hard for you to learn jodan.
Not sure how bad your left knee is but if it is busted, can it take an impact from the floor when striking?
Most of people find it hard to strike with one hand. It is not a mere swinging. You have to create the same amount of impact with only one hand as you do with the both hands, basically.
Besides it is not only the arm power. The balance when executing a strike with the left hand is very important. You must perform ki ken tai icchi
So start practicing to strike with the left hand and also learn ki ken tai icchi
Hope this helps but do not hesitate to ask more questions!
