Kumite (Partner Training)

Karatedo Doshinkan has remained a traditional form of Karatedo. Although it is great fun, it is not considered a game or a sport and doesn’t include tournament play.

It is a realistic self defense method, and a form of self development. Partner training is a mainstay of the training, and incorporates realistic distancing, timing and other features of practical application. Partner training includes application of kata, throwing, safe falling methods, grappling, joint locks, etc. The emphasis is on helping our partners to develop their understanding and skills to a high level.
