In 2013, you became the World champion of discipline Enbu. Can you tell us what is Enbu and what karate style you are doing?
Its Fudokan style. Enbu is a discipline that has been introduced to keep karate's traditional basics of self-defense skills. The goal is to reflect the self-defending use of karate skills through a certain type of agreed sparing. There are pre-combinational combinations, demonstrated at kumite standings in a one-minute time interval, +/- 5 seconds allowed. A male couple can perform, and mix. It is forbidden to contact and injure a partner. They need to present various techniques and combinations in a more realistic way.
The attacking side has to apply karate techniques, oi zuki, mae geri, mawashi geri, ushiro geri ... . In addition, it is important that: the attack must be strictly directed toward the goal, it is allowed to disturb the balance, capture, pulling, pushing, cleaning. The defending side must neutralize the attack by blocking: Uke, Sabake. The defending champion must satisfy the following requirements: The final blow todome is needed, at the very end of the demonstration, when a mixed pair of women performs a final shot, the man must attack first. Contact is forbidden except when you block your arm and leg or when a balance disturbance technique is running. The contestants must express the state of Zanshin between and during the performance of the techniques themselves.

Thank you very much for the interview. We wish you all the best in the future. Karate Live
