BASSAI DAI - kata & application volume 8
Buy and Download >
Bassai Dai is a Karate kata used for grading purposes, also known as Passai. It also has many self defence applications. Following on from the success of his book "Fortress Storming", John Burke sensei committed the techniques and principles to DVD.
Rather than looking at the kata as a demonstration peice to show against other martial artists' choreographed attacks, the approach here is to show how each technique works against the kinds of attack that really happen, in-close and for the purpose of stopping the attacker from carrying on.
Locks, holds, throws, and strikes to anatomically vulnerable locations, for the traditional martial artist who lives in the real world.
