The footage was taken in a seminar hosted by Sensei Victor Young (7th Dan Shotokan) with input on Shito-ryu variations for Jion's pattern provided by Sensei Jason Armstrong (6th dan). Supporting kata performances are included by Senpai Sean Danaher (3rd Dan Shotokan) and Senpai Nick Lukich (3rd Dan Shito-ryu). All ranks listed above were at the time of filming in 2007.
The content on this page focuses solely on Jion's Kata patterns & bunkai. The patterns are performed with Shotokan and Shito-ryu examples (e.g. Shukokai, Shitokai, Renbukan & other Shito-ryu styles) and bunkai are explained in a step by step fashion.
