Buy and Download >
JION is a karate kata often not taught until Black Belt is achieved. Longer than many preceeding kata, and the source material that the younger kata are made up from (at least partly). The applications are often hugely mis-understood.
Presented here are the self defence applications to the moves from the kata. Countering common types of attack, we see the moves used to capture, restrain, or damage someone who intends you harm.
This video, an hour long, shows how the principles relate to the martial artist when the assualt is not from a choreographed fellow student.
