Watching this video and reading the description on Karate Dojo WaKu's channel, it is clear that Rodolfo Reyes Jr. is as gracious off the mats as he is graceful on the mats.
In this interview, he talks about what he thinks are the key points of Poomsae. We were surprised to hear him say that mastery of forms is number one, followed by relaxation; although when you watch him compete it makes perfect sense he is so fluid, then speed and power.
It was also reassuring to hear him say that high kicks are not necessary to be good at Poomsae, but they do bring the wow factor.
We look forward to seeing much more from Rodolfo at the 2021 SEA Games.
