OYO Part 1.
1 hour and 20 minutes of footage investigating the traiing method we use to go from static kata applications to effective self-protection. Bunkai means analysis. Oyo means application. This is where they come together.
John Burke renshi assisted by Ross Chesterton sensei teaches applications to kata moves that are used as strikes to anatomically vulnerable locations, locks, throws, and more. In this video we see how the straight punches are related to grabs and pushes and how we start to deal with hook techniques, randomised attacks, and what happens when it goes to the floor.
The principles shown here are not about any ONE kata, they are about all kata, regardless of style or level of experience.
