Kata Comparison Seminar - Hangetsu & Seisan
Buy and Download >
This video was shot live at a seminar, and there is some small background noise creeping in. The group was taught the Shotokan Hangetsu kata, and the GojuRyu Seisan, with the similarities and differences being illustrated.
It isn't the outward form, but the practical applications for self defence that draw the kata together. The style may be different, but the principles remain the same.
The tuition here is by John Burke sensei of Shotokan, with Seisan portions by Damian Birch sensei of Doryoku Ryu.
Running at around an hour, the quality of the information is what makes this video important for all karate-ka.
