Bunkai Gold 1-25, previously offered at $9 each, but subscribers can get them for $7.50 per month (4 or 5 parts).

Each week, the Bunkai Strategies Newsletter posts a free video on the tv.bunkai.co.uk site. And each week, the Bunkai Gold subscribers are sent that video for free, along with the additional video that is Bunkai Gold. We add information, look deeper at the principles, and share additional "secrets" in how to make your Karate Kata applications work.
Weeks 1-25 are represented here. Half a year's worth, and well over 3 hours worth of footage.
