Dirty Chinte Flow Drill

This video is an extension of a previous analysis of the kata Chinte. The new analysis includes a flinch response and an effective use of tate shuto uke (vertical knife hand) to index and control the head while giving a "face wash". It's simple, dirty and fun.

Thanks for sharing, Andy! I don't practice Chinte in my system, but the material in your drill is present in several of our kata

It seems like it should be a fairly common principle. It's actual similar to naihanchi with its elbow strikes into the palm... find the head and smash it!

Superb! I really like both the content and the presentation.

A fine and accurate summation of karate :-)

All the best,

Really enjoyed this video.  I especially like the way you enter the drill.  Great use of the flinch as well.  I don't know this kata, but I can see that these applications are top notch.

This is a GREAT drill. I don't know this kata, but I sure like how you are applying the movements. I think your specialty is creating these kinds of flow drills. Well done!
