Hi All, I noticed that on the Wikipedia page for "Karate" there's a line that states: "Bunkai is a useful tool to understand a kata". A rather seemingly inocuous line yet it leads me to a deeper question which has probably been discussed here before: (1) What came first - Kata or Bunkai?
This forum is dedicated to an exchange of ideas relating to the practical application of Okinawan and Japanese kata. Increase
your understanding of kata whilst helping others to do the same.
