Bunkai Gold 2016 week 40
The kata of Karate, also known as patterns or forms, are sometimes seen as collections of moves which must be learned for grading examinations. Here, we investigate the moves as having a meaning for self defence, where often there are hidden facets to be dicovered.
This video is a look at the strike from Tekki Shodan which has a "supporting hand". When we assess the range of the move we find our principles confirmed.
In this video, containing the free Bunkai Strategies clip and the Bunkai Gold video only available to subscribers, John Burke renshi shows a different use for the move.
