Late last year I met Tomaz Stanovnik at a seminar I was teaching in Germany on Chinto / Gankaku. Tomaz recently sent me some footage of demonstration / seminar he had done on Chinto. I really like it and I asked if I could share it with you all here. Tomaz also sent me some footage of him explaining how kata evolved from combat which I also thought was excellent. Additionally he also shared some footage possible applications of an elbow strike combined with gedan barai. Tomaz was kind enough to allow me to share all this footage with you all and I’m sure you’ll also be very impressed. Enjoy!
All the best,
