Taikyoku Gedan

Gedan Ichi

Goju-Ryu Kata - Taikyoku Gedan 太極

Gedan Ni

Please note that we perform this kata with the side stance/punch as in the first video. Neither of these is the clearest, but you can see that they both do a side shiko dachi (horse stance) with a lead/front punch to the side.

Note that the punch begins as the body turns, and ends as it locks in place.

Taikyoku gedan dai ni

This version differs in that it uses multiple punches, with the reverse punch on the step. We do not test on this version, but you should know it as well.
