Gojushiho Bunkai Drill (video)

This drill is a quick summation of some of the Gojushiho bunkai we covered over a weekend in Germany in October 2014. Over that weekend, we looked at applications for the whole of the Sho and Dai versions of Gojushiho; including how they integrate and support one another. This drill quickly recaps the core bunkai for Gojushiho-Sho (also labelled as Gojushiho-Dai in many groups). While the exact name varies, it is the version with the “spear hands” that is covered in this clip.

Please remember that this clip is part of a summation of a full weekend’s exploration of two kata. It is not intended to be an instructional clip. Viewers also need to accept that the drill is unlikely to make total sense to those who were not privy to the totality of the information shared. However, it is nevertheless hoped the drill is of interest.

The purpose of the drill is to provide a time efficient way to practise the core applications of Gojushiho-Sho, and to act as an aide-mémoire for those who were at the seminar.

Thanks for your support of these videos!

All the best,
