Buy and Download >
This video features tuition by John Burke sensei of the Karate Academy in Devon, UK. Assisted by Ross Chesterton sensei, the featured kata is Gojushiho Dai - usually reserved for experienced Karate-ka; high Dan grades.
Rather than looking at attackers who approach from 10 feet away, the techniques of the kata are used here to deal with close-in situations and common forms of hostility.
The moves from the kata become joint-locks, throws, and strikes to anatomically vulnerable locations.
This is Volume 23 in the series "kata & applications"
John Burke teaches regular classes, courses, and seminars, as well as being the author of 5 books and several articles about practical kata bunkai.
