What is Kokondo Karate?
Kokondo Karate, established by Master Arel in 1970, is a karate style comprising a fusion of multiple systems hailing from Japan, Okinawa, China, Burma, Thailand, and the Philippines. This style draws inspiration from a plethora of sources, with early Kyokushin Karate, Isshin-Ryu Karate, Sankata Karate-Jutsu, Sanzyuryu Jujitsu, and Jukido Jujitsu serving as some of its primary influences.
Currently, there are hundreds of karate styles in practice, with most of them having emerged in the last four decades. In principle, Kokondo dates back to the earliest forms of martial arts. As far as technique is concerned, it embraces the wisdom of ancient practices. Meanwhile, its contextual approach to self-defense is contemporary and practical.
The fundamental purpose of all forms of martial arts was originally to equip oneself with self-defense skills. Kokondo continues to uphold this purpose despite the fact that the vast majority of martial arts styles practiced today have drifted away from this fundamental objective.
Self-defense training must encompass an understanding of all forms of attack and defense, such as various techniques, directions, ranges, attackers, and weapons. To increase the likelihood of successfully defending oneself against stronger or larger opponents, students must be trained to handle any type of attack. The golden rule for effective self-defense is to respond appropriately to the situation at hand.
Kata is the foundation of any traditional Karate system. It exemplifies a system’s intention and approach to self-defense. The execution of kata is crucial to discerning differences in stance depth and length and the use of linear or circular motions.
Kokondo boasts an extensive repertoire of kata, including a plethora of kata that are exclusive to Kokondo, as well as several advanced kata from the Shotokan and Goju-Ryu syllabi. The advantages of studying kata are plentiful. The significance and relevance of kata to a particular system cannot be overstated. Kata embody all the ideas and principles of the art, holding the complete wisdom of the system.
