Harakatul Qadam

What we have learned in dojo tonight:

Harakatul Qadam - "حَــرَكةُ القَـدَم"


Or as we all know "Footwork." :D

Footwork is a martial arts and combat sports term for the general usage of the legs and feet in stand-up fighting. Footwork involves keeping balance, closing or furthering the distance, controlling spatial positioning, and/or creating additional momentum for strikes.

Here's an additional info for you, for reading this post:

Tai sabaki (体捌き) is a term from Japanese martial arts and which relates to 'whole body movement', or re-positioning. It can be translated as body-management. It is a term used widely in kendo, jujutsu, aikido, judo, karate and ninjutsu. Tai sabaki is usually used to avoid an attack, such that the receiver of the attack ends up in an advantageous position and it is often wrongly referred to as evasion.
