Buy and Download >
In this video, totalling one hour and 50 minutes, you can see practical applications to the Gojushiho Sho kata. This version is the reverse knife-hand block and consecutive spear hand strikes kata rather than the pointy fingers kata which we call Gojushiho Dai.
Also known as Useishi, this form is normally taught to third degree black belts and above. The applications shown here are, thus, advanced, and not suitable for sporting demonstrations. Rather, these are the joint-manipulation and anatomically vulnerable location striking applications which were developed for the sake of self defence. In other words, the orginal aim of Karate practice.
