Karate-do is the Way of the Empty Hand. A main feature of training is the practice of solo forms - kata. Analysing the moves is bunkai - to take apart and look at. The use of the techniques, how they are applied, is oyo.
The applications that we are looking at are based around close-in application rather than the sporting arena's version of application. Often these moves do not look flashy as combat quickly becomes ugly and snarled up. They are taught here at learning speed rather than at full fury, and practitioners are reminded that using these techniques can lead to harm if great care is not exercised.
The presenter is John Burke. He is a full-time Karate teacher from Devon, UK, graded 6th dan black belt and awarded the title renshi. Travelling to learn from teachers across the world, he is recognised for his application teaching. His seminars and courses are taught across the UK and internationally. There are a series of books and DVDs available on his bunkai.co.uk site.
