The ‘Karate Buddy’ is a round timer with a difference. Designed for people who want to take advantage of those extra sessions but may not have a partner to train with.

Developed and used by WKF World champion Paul Newby. With his no excuses attitude you can now train on your own while getting the same reaction simulation as having a real partner.

How does it work?
Using a specially developed random time generator 'Karate Buddy' makes each round unique allowing you to structure your training to suit.

The routines are limitless with no two the same – We use the numbers / bleeps and NOW colours to signal the execution of a technique or exercise and the time between for drills or pad work.

This really "Deep Practise" without needing a partner.

Happy training! Oos

For a simple example, to get you started. Set the timer to "numbers". Any length you desire. When the timer calls a number execute the following technique:

1 = Gyaku Zuki
2 = Kazami Zuki
3 = Gyaku Zuki Mawashi Geri
4 = Kazami Zuki Mawashi Geri
