Bunkai Flow Drill for Fukyugata Ich


Here is an instructional video for a bunkai flow drill I created for Fukyugata Ich, the first basic kata in Matsubayashi. I'm trying to create a drill that will work the major bunkai applications I'm teaching, help students practice those skills quickly and efficiently, help students develop a sense of working with a partner yet also against an opponent, and help students get a feel for following one technique with another and stringing them together. Of course, the next step is to "break the drill" and to use the skills more spontaneously, which we will explore in kata-based sparring and other such drills. Hope this contributes to the discussions.
