I have been working with Kanku Dai (Shotokan Karate version) for a while now. One part of the kata still has me thinking. In the middle of the kata, following two punches there is a turn with a block by your shin and forearm then a fall to the ground and then up facing the opposite directions with a down ward blocking motion open handed. Steps #40 to #44 with those familiar to the kata diagram charts. I see a possible throw and/or single leg take down from these movements but I'm thinking there is far more in these few movements than that. Would anyone like to help me see what these moves are most likely showing?
