As the below recommendation features footage of real violence, I believe this warrants a content warning. I haven't seen this posted here before. At some point (I think in the last few years) "Active Self Protection" has exploded into a whole business, with a website shop, Facebook page, the works. I wanted to share the YouTube channel because the Facebook group can get exceptionally political, and as many folks here are in the UK and elsewhere with stricter gun laws, those types of discussions might be less than pertinent.
I’m currently rereading “The Study of Karate Techniques” by Morinobu Itoman (1934). It’s great book that all pragmatic karateka are sure to enjoy. The book includes discussions on throwing, choking, pins, improvised weapons, “cheating”, verbal deception, pre-emption, etc.
Last month, my Sensei and I taught an online seminar covering applications for every sequence of movements in Naihanchi Shodan, and now the DVD of that seminar is available for purchase through CreateSpace!
