Chris Denwood tells us about his latest book, 'Naihanchi (Tekki) Kata: The Seed of Shuri Karate Vol. 1'.
This is the first of a three part project that covers an integrated and comprehensive 'five-layer' study into Naihanchi Kata, a form that along with Sanchin from the Naha line, has always been considered a fundamental part of the art’s combative methodologies.
as I often pointed out Henning Wittwer is my No.1 source for Karate history related information. He put a couple of previously in English puplished articles into one book and it is now available via Lulu.
Title of the book is:

I am a Goju Ryu student and I am looking for some Kata Bunkai material on DVD.
I've recently come across the Kissaki Kai DVD's on realistic Kata applications by Sensei Vince Morris. I am really enjoying his applications but I would like to know if anyone has come across material like Sensei Vince's but for the Goju Ryu Kata as I've seen that Sensei Vince's material on Kata bunkai covers the Shotokan Kata.
“It’s been a long time since I formally studied swordsmanship, but it is nevertheless a topic which I find fascinating. This is a great book which I feel should be part of every martial artist’s library! A great read!” – Iain Abernethy
