This video was previously only available as part of the Complete Karate DVD course by John Burke sensei. In the 24 DVD course many different facets of the martial art of Karate were examined.
This particular chapter of Volume 9 was a demonstration of the throws that are shown in the pre-war edition of Karate-do Kyohan. The book by Funakoshi sensei went through some extreme changes between it's pre-war and post-war editions - basically, much of the useful stuff was removed. This has left many people with the idea that "Karate doesn't have throws".
Well, it does.
These are by no means the only throws in Karate, but they are the ones that were commited to print by Funakoshi sensei. The demonstration here is by John Burke sensei, assisted by Lee Warren sensei and Ross Chesterton sensei.
The chapter runs at just under 15 minutes.
