Goho comprises swift, accurate and scientifically based techniques involving dodges, blocks, punches and kicks. Understanding the fundamentals of goho involves a great deal more than simply learning how to punch and kick. Intrinsic to its correct application is a comprehensive understanding of the vulnerable points of the body, combative distance, speed and timing.
In addition, the practitioner is provided with a safe environment within which to explore and familiarise themselves with the psychological components of a physical encounter. The training methods employed in acquiring this understanding involve a variety of exercises designed to improve balance, body awareness, flexibility and fluidity of motion.
