Karate Bunkai: 3 Levels of Kata Application called Omote, Ura and Honto.
The true meaning of many kata have been lost in Okinawa history, but through understanding the principles of self-defense we can better use kata in a real fight. In this video you will learn 3 types of bunkai: Omote (suitable for beginners), Ura (intermediate) and Honto (the real application).
These concepts can be applied to all martial arts that have forms, including Taekwondo, Kung Fu and Tang Soo Do. Presented by sensei Jesse Enkamp.
This bunkai is another variation of the kata heian yondan (also called pinan yondan). The interpretation is typical for Shotokan with hard and straight techniques. Here we see most applications in go-no-sen way, as it is taught today.
This is a summary of some of the practical and effective applications within the kata Kanku Dai (Kushanku). Kata is alway more interesting to practice when you actually know some realistic applications behind the techniques. Sensei David Gimbeline hopes you can use these ideas in your own training and teaching.
