Wow, a full hour of nothing but tenkan. I love it when sensei trains us really hard by focusing on one technique for the entire class. To make the training even more rigorous, there were only three of us last night. I'm still recovering from the kokyu seminar over the weekend. The temperature is getting hotter, the training is getting harder - and better!

Hmmm, I've never had to explain it come to think of it. I'm willing to bet that there are lots of ways to explain it. At the very least it involves taking your front foot back. But is that really enough? Sometimes you just take a step backwards and that's it, but other times you take a step backwards and also turn your entire body the opposite direction so it ends up being a full 180 degree turn.

Hi Scarey, How do you explain tenkan in English? Tenkan turn? How about kaiten? Kaiten two-step turn? People in this forum, what do you call these two turns in your dojo? Simply, tenkan and kaiten?
