Bunkai Strategies Course Part 1
This is part one of 12 part course.
Originally released on 12 DVDs, and supplied alnogside 12 bonus DVDs, the Bunkai Strategies Course is a Karate Instructor's toolbox. Essentially, it teaches you the "why" and the "how" of teaching Karate Kata Bunkai that is practical. Each video explores principles and demosntrates how they affect all kata, and Karate in general.
In volume 1, John Burke sensei takes us through "Junk Bunkai" and explains why some of the nonsense that goes around can actually be useful. A look at Patrick McCarthy hanshi's HAPV Theory to identify how bunkai really works, and the vital "Half-Way Rule". Plus bonus footage of seminars that are now long out of production so that you can see techniques being taught in a class environment.
Any portion of this module could keep an instructor going with ideas for classes and their own development. Together they form a vital resource that builds across the course. This module is vital for understanding the rest of the course as it lays the foundations.
