Classes typically begin with warm up exercises, then training basic techniques (blocks, kicks, punches, etc.). Students may practice forms, or kata, a series of set movements designed to defend against imaginary attackers. Partner work is also an important component of training, during which students work with each other to develop their blocking and counter-striking in a controlled setting.
