Had a look on here if this question has been asked before but could not find too much about it.
I am referring to the shuto near the end of the kata where you do a shuto at a 45 degree angle but you are looking in the opposite direction,
I do have some applications for shuto myself and from iain's dvd but was wondering what do people think regarding why I am looking away from the strike.
In shotokan we do it slowly or I do anyway!!! So that has got me thinking that it is an important application.
Maybe doing a take down or a neckcrank in that direction but I cant think of any reason why I would not be looking that way. and why my stance is like back to front.
Hope I have explain it ok. I would post a you tube clip but not too sure how !!!!
The section is around the 1.34 mins part.
