Naihanchi Static Vs. Live Drills

Hey everyone,

I put this video together to illustrate the limitations of static drills and the importance of live drilling to develop skills that can really serve us in fighting and self-defense. Familiar concepts to most on this forum but something I would like to see more common in bunkai. Thanks

Totally agree with more live drilling and increasing resistance. I think we basically do the same drill with dirt thrown in! Great video keep up the awesome work! Jeb

Great video! Too few karateka understand this and do this. Relating it to my four aspects of kata practise:

1) Solo Form – Most karateka do this.

2) Practise the Bunkai – A smaller number do this (although is growing all the time).

3) Identify and internalise the underlying principles so you can adapt and vary – A even smaller number do this.

4) Gain live experience of doing it – A minority do this.

We need ALL four aspect of the kata process to be in play in order to fully realise kata’s value.

Thanks for posting!

All the best,
