Bunkai Gold is about the practical applications for the moves of Karate kata. Karate-do is the Way of the Empty Hand. Training consists, among other things, of kihon - basics; kumite - sparring; and kata - forms.
The kata of Karate are often misunderstood. These templates of movement have many uses. The analysis of the moves is known as Bunkai. Their practical application is Oyo.
In this week's study, we will use the move from Heian Yondan, Peaceful Mind level four, also occuring in Kanku Dai, that appears to be dropping a strike at the first kiai point. We start with the different parts of the weapon that can be used and also how it is used as a release during grabbing.
The instructor is John Burke. He is the author of 5 kata application books and over 50 DVDs. John teaches Karate full-time in Devon, and his seminars are taught across the UK and internationally. He is currently ranked 6th Dan.
