    Kamae Revealed (truth or crap)

    Kamae: "fighting stance" or "basic posture". It involves both the physical and mental status of the karate-ka. It is used in both budo and daily life. It is preparedness of the body and mind. When you assume the kamae you are ready in both mind and body for anything.

    Kamae is a physical fighting stance. The body is prepared. We can choose to protect, with our hands, the gedan, chudan, or jodan (lower, middle, or upper). We are prepared to defend or attack, to move in any direction, and to move to the stance-no-stance posture of combat.

    Kamae must be very flexible. You destroy your own kamae to goad the opponent to attack. You use kamae to come to a better position than your opponent.

    Kamae means the mind must be as clear as a mirror. It forms stillness during movement. It means that in stillness and movement ther is harmony between stability and free movements. It means you have peace of mind in any situation.

    The best kamae is when there is a complete harmony between the physical and mental. You will be naturally calm.

    A person with perfect kamae is difficult to attack. Perfect kamae is when the mental and physical are in perfect harmony with each other.:911flag:

      Search function idiot.

      Oh...and when you can read Kanji, get back to me and let me know what Kamae actually means.

      Do me a favor and actually type the Kanji in your post.

      Pasting .gifs or .jpegs does not count.

                Yes, it's true. You'll never be able to kick anyone's ass without the proper kamae. All the world's greatest fighters were able to reach the pinnacle of the fighting arts because they have mastered the fine points of kamae. They are at peace with their kamae. Once you reach a state of harmony with your kamae, you will be able to wreak unbelievable horror on all your enemies.

                  What level do you get Kamae at? Does it come before or after the fireball spell?

                    PS. You have no fucking clue what Kamae is. Stop spewing your instructor's crap.

                      Back in the 50's and 60's we really hated Kamaes. It wasn't until the early 90's when the Soviet Union fell that we really relaxed our sphyncter about a kamae invasion reminicent of Red Dawn. Kamaeism failed.

                          Yeah, that song sucked. But did you ever see Kamaendo with Arnold Schwartzenegger? Awesome movie.
