Official YSSKWU UK Video Snippets

Hi all, the YSSKWU UK would to provide a selection of short video snippets for our members to watch whilst isolated at home.

The Official DVD's have been cut up into sections and we would like to start with Video 1 - Combinations 1A-9A (in both Kihon & Kumite forms), with the Kyu grading syllabus to follow.

There will be further videos every couple of days.

Find a bit of free space and follow along and then practice over the next couple of days. You could also perform some stretching exercises to stay supple and fit.

Note: The title cards on the videos say Combinations A, B & C, these are actually split up into 3 videos, with the A combinations only on this video.

Stay Home, Stay Safe and Stay Healthy

Many Thanks
Denis Casey
