HEIAN SHODAN kata & application volume 2
Heian Shodan is often seen as a beginner's training form. Many high grades overlook it as simplistic, yet the lessons in this kata, sometimes called Pinan Nidan, teach us much about the anatomically vulnerable targets, how to unbalance an attacker, and which of the common methods of attack we can meet with certainty that no matter our size or the size of an attacker we can overcome thme simply.
In this video, about an hour long, John Burke sensei reveals how the techniques of Heian Shodan are used for self defence rather than meeting the demonstrated attacks of choreographed fellow martial artists. Make Heian Shodan into a true foundation for the martial arts.
