Matsukaze bunkai opening sequence (video)

This video shows a small amount of Matsukaze bunkai. The sequence covered is the first few moves of the kata. This footage was filmed at a four day residential course where we explored more of the kata. This clip is therefore an incomplete snapshot and needs to be watched on that understanding.

We can see many common kata bunkai principles at play in this sequence i.e. the angle in the kata representing the angle we assume relative to the enemy, the stance adding bodyweight to the motion, the use of both hands, the kata addressing where to flow to should a motion fail, and so on.

I hope you find the clip of interest!

All the best,
