Pinan Shodan Opening Moves


A few of my beginners are starting Pinan Shodan, and here is a video exploring three possible applications that we are drilling together. I'm continuing to emphasize not just the specific techniques but the combative principles (flinch response, angles, clearing guard, wrist releases, joint manipulation, etc), as well as encouraging them to think about the principles in relation to what other kata teach us (Fukyugata Ich shows us X, Pinan Shodan shows us how to deal with the same situation with Y...).
