On July 5th and 6th, 2019, we held our workshop "Makotokai Karate and Tai Chi" on the topic "Moving the force and the force in movements". On this occasion we had invited the Senseis Riccardo and Corrado Savino from our home dojo, the Jin Dojo in Padova, Italy. Both hold the 5th Dan (black belt) in Makotokai Karate and the 5th Chie in Tai Chi.
Our workshop was dedicated to the question how we generate power in our techniques from our movements and how we use this force in our movements in the space.
The Senseis Riccardo and Corrado Savino approached this topic not only in the context of Karate, but used the second day of the workshop to give a short introduction into the traditional Chinese martial art of Tai Chi and demonstrate how the principles of Makotokai Karate are also found in Tai Chi.
