Tai Sabaki 2 - body shifting in kumite
Body movement and footwork are used in all the martial arts, including ninjutsu, aikido and so on. As well as suri-ashi, or sliding feet, which is the primary method of footwork in Goju Ryu, other terms and techniques can be found elsewhere, such as okuri-ashi, ayumi-ashi, and hiraki-ashi.
This video shows how tai sabaki can be applied with speed in kumite sparring in karate.
