Kime – the motion of a wave

Think of your karate like the waves in the sea. The power builds and flows through the body, growing until it is released at the last minute as the wave crashes on the shore.

Replicate this with your karate technique. Kime is not simply the point of impact, it is the release of ALL the power you have generated throughout the movement beginning at the point of impact and only ending as the weapon is recalled.
