Uke Waza is Japanese for "receiving techniques".  It is a term from Karate-do (The Way of the Empty Hand) that is commonly translated as "blocking".  In this video, presented by John Burke 6th dan renshi, we will show different ways that the uke waza can be applied.

Marching up and down the dojo performing moves in thin air, the techniques can be abstract and removed from reality.  Using them in sparring we take short-cuts and avoid using the full technique.  And in self-defence? Well, a pre-emptive strike is best, isn't it?

The truth is that there are layers to technique, and when we explore them we can find many different uses.  Here are the four basic "blocks" - rising, downward, inside to outside, and outside to inside - used to block, to parry, to strike, as arm-bars, and holds.

Bunkai is usually interpreted as application, but actually the term means "to take apart and analyse".  A better term might be Oyo.  "Use, apply" is the translation.  However, the term bunkai is so widely (mis)used that it has become more acceptable to know applications by that name.

John Burke is a full-time Karate instructor based in Devon, UK.  He teaches classes and his seminars have been taught across the UK and internationally.  The author of kata application books, and more than 50 instructional DVDs, he continues to seek practical uses for the art.

This video was originally intended for DVD release.  However, the similarity of it's content to Bunkai Part 1 and Bunkai of Basics means that it is only available here, as a download.
