The Basics of Bunkai: Series

The Basics of Bunkai: Part 1
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.

An interesting article that explains nicely what few karateka know or even want to know. But before bunkai is kata and what practitioners need to learn, before starting on bunkai, are the rules of kata. Things like angles and direction are detailed in kata, techniques are sequenced so when one fails the next is available. I wish I had known of Iain Abernathy's work earlier in my training.
