HEIAN NIDAN kata & application volume 3
Heian Nidan, sometimes known as Pinan Shodan, is a fundamental kata, and quite complicated for a beginner. The reason for it's early introduction into the learning process is revealed here, as we take a look at how the story that a kata tells is entirely relevant to self defence.
John Burke sensei takes us through the moves, illustrating how they strike an attacker to prevent further aggression, unbalance them, and restrain them should that be your intention. Discover why you would seek to make the shapes that this kata makes, and how nukite is for anything but digging into your opponent's chest with your fingertips...
