Yakusoku Kumite
Iri Kumi

 

There are two types of Kumite (sparring) practiced in Goju-Ryu Karate-Do. Yakusoku Kumite (pre-arranged sparring) and Iri Kumi (free style sparring). Yakusoku Kumite is the traditional form of Kumite of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-Do. All Goju-Ryu organizations practice Yakusoku Kumite. Iri Kumi (also known as Jiyu Kumite) is a relatively new addition to Goju-Ryu Karate-Do. It is not practiced by all Goju-Ryu Karate-Do organizations including the Okinawa Goju-Ryu Karate-Do So Honbu, Jundokan.

At Burlington Karate & Kobudo we practice and teach both forms of Kumite.
