A good part of the class is where Ben explains in detail the basics of Karate (Karate-Do) and the difference between Karate-Zangetsu. He explains the differences between the two in such a way that even the most inexperienced student will understand the concept. Ben is also very informative when it comes to explaining the different techniques of Karate (Karate-Do). One of the most useful techniques discussed in the class is the “Karate-Do Eye Sweep.” This technique is used in almost all forms of Karate and is a very important one as it can prove very difficult to defend against, especially when used to its full potential. Ben explains in great detail how to perform this technique and demonstrates the different positions that it can be used in and also explains why a lot of Karate masters will often use the technique during a fight. The class also discusses some of the best defense techniques that are often overlooked by a lot of new students, which will give them an edge over their opponents when it comes to real world Karate fights.
