Naihanchi Shodan yoi and step across

Hello everyone,

Our Waza Wednesday for this week is a special one, because my Sensei's Sensei was visiting our dojo and agreed to record one with us. Eddie Bethea, Kyoshi, Hachidan, has been training in the Shorinkan under Nakazato Shugoro for over 50 years, and is one of the most experienced karateka in the US. In this video, he shows a simple application for the yoi and initial step across in Naihanchi Shodan, which applies a very painful compound joint lock, and sets you up to stomp or kick the opponent.
