Kaoru-chan Training Special (Submission for KSKM)

This workout was submitted by Adam Gorman for “Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru.” I liked it, so I didn’t really feel like I needed to make modifications and so the text is almost entirely as it was submitted to me.

  • This workout is aimed at building the speed and explosive power Hamada had as well as conditioning your body in a way similar to his, as well as having you practice his signature techniques.
  • It’s likely he weight trains as he goes from a lightweight to middle in a year.
  • (From here on the notes are all from Real Anime Training)
  • We’ve pretty much covered everything in the first part, except for split squats. A split squat is done from the top of a lunge position. You squat down to the bottom of the lunge, with knee touching the floor, then you stand up. You feet will remain with one leg out front and one leg back. When you complete all of the reps, do the other side. 
  • The punches with the dumbbell should start out light, like 1 or 2 lbs. 
  • For the speed ladder, here is a video with some good drills.
  • Below is a picture of a slip bag, if you didn’t know what it was. You hit it and then practice slipping to the side like a punch is coming in. 
That’s all for today! Until next time, good luck and train hard! If anyone has character or anime workouts they want to submit, please do so at realanimetraining@gmail.com!
