Kushanku / Kanku-Dai / Kosokun Limb Control Drills (video)

This video shows limb-control drills (trapping, locking, gripping and re-directing) for the first quarter of Kushanku / Kanku-Dai / Kosokun. The video begins by showing the two core drills for the opening sequence and the following knife-hands. The video then goes on to explain how the methods in the drill should be varied and recombined in differing orders. The objective is the never the drill. The objective is to internalise the methods within the drill so they can be applied freely and effectively as the situation dictates. Kata, bunkai drills, variations and live practise are all needed to make this happen. These drills are therefore just one part of a holistic training matrix. I nevertheless hope they are of interest.

All the best,

Iain
