Hojo Undo

Hojo Undo” or “traditional training” is the traditional strength training of Goju-Ryu. Tools are used in such a way that they provide maximal support for the body in order to practice karate. Hojo undo contributes to the building of strength, but can also improve stamina, speed and focus when practiced frequently. Sensei Higaonna emphasises that to achieve real results, hojo undo should be practiced on a regular basis. Click here for more information.

Class times Hojo Undoby
Thu18:15-19:30traditional strength trainingJan Kroon, Jobbe Wijnen
Students can make use of the following tools: Chi Ishi (stone hammer), Kongoken (rectangular metal ring), Nigiri Game (grabbing vases), Makiwara (punching board), Ishisashi (metal handles), Sashi-Ishi (stones), Tetsu Geta (iron sandals), Makiage Kigu (wrist-roller). We make sure that all tools are available for good use. Depending on everyone’s wishes, trainings can be held collectively or individually, but there will always be karatekas present to explain or carry out exercises. We hope that hojo-undo Thursday will bring even more joy and “gezelligheid” to KenKon. To finish with a quote from the legendary JFK:

If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself. If we are weak, words will be of no help.

Kind regards and see you soon,
