The Why of Bunkai: A Guide for Beginners

The Why of Bunkai: A Guide for Beginners
Two thousand years ago wise men sought Christ, wise men still do.

Techniques are situational, principles are universal.

Fast as the wind, quiet as the forest, aggressive as fire, and immovable as a mountain.

He who gets there first with the most...wins!

Minimal force may not be minimum force!

We don't rise to the occasion...we sink to the level of our training.

Abernethy Sensei used to have an e-book available on his website about kata.  If I can find the link I'll post it up as well.  It was quite in-depth IIRC.

Okay, found it Smile

Not specifically about kata, but has much about kata.  I'll post the link here as well as make a thread for it for easy reference later.

I wanted to bring this back to the top as it links to two very excellent resources that I'd like the membership to be aware of.  Quite a lot of effort was put into each.
