I think this is a wonderful exercise. Its not easy to describe but I will try:


1. From a standing position you step forward into a forward stance with your left leg leading. Here you would execute technique

2. Then you turn clockwise 180 degrees into a right leading forward stance and execute technique.

3. Then you turn anti-clock wise 90 degrees into a left leading forward stance and execute technique.

4. Then you turn clockwise 180 degrees into a right leading forward stance and execute technique.

5. Then you turn anti-clock wise 90 degrees into a left leading forward stance and execute technique.

6. Then you turn clockwise 180 degrees into a right leading forward stance and execute technique.

7. Then you turn anti-clock wise 90 degrees into a left leading forward stance and execute technique.

8. Then you turn clockwise 180 degrees into a right leading forward stance and execute technique.

9. Then you turn anti-clock wise 90 degrees into a left leading forward stance and execute technique.

Now you are back where you started.


This exercise you can do various blocking and countering with Gyaku Zuki.
You can also change the forward stance to back stance and block with Shuto Uke and then change to forward stance and execute Gyaku Zuki. This is known as Kihon Keiki Mae Itch

In one method of using this you can block with Uchi Uke, do a Mae Geri and then execute gyuaku zuki, oi zuki then gyaku zuki again. This exercise is called Happo geri.

I find itís a great exercise for multi directional fighting.

We have done a lot of turning drills like that. For some of us it is a dizzying experience, but useful. Over time my ability to tolerate this drill did improve a lot.
