Welcome to Bunkai Gold 2020. This is where we analyse the principles of self defence demonstrated with examples from traditional karate kata.
Karate-do is the Way of the Empty Hand. It is taught through Kihon, Kumite, and Kata. Basics, Sparring, and Set Forms. The study of forms is Bunkai. The use of the applications is Oyo.
It seems that most of the world wants kata applications to look good up on stage for demonstrations and competitions. Ours is there for dealing with brutal situations. They involve throws, locks, strikes to anatomically vulnerable areas and how to deal with realistic types of attack.
Here in WEEK 15 we include the free Bunkai Strategies video and demonstrate and application from Naihanchi/Tekki Shodan - Iron Horseman level 1. It's the starting sequence and we show here how it can be used close in, and might not be a ready position at all.
The instructor is John Burke, full-time karate teacher from Devon, UK. He's the author of 5 books and more than 50 DVDs on kata application, and his seminars are taught across the UK and internationally.
