I have a question that has long vexed me regarding sanseru kata. It is at the very end point in the kata:
Sensei Paul Enfield there.
Higoanna Sensei there.
I've seen it with a cross block before the turn and chicken head blocks.
For the longest time, I interpretted the chicken head blocks as a shoulder lock turning take-down, but it can't be because the wrong foot steps through. If you visualise your right hand on the back of the uke's neck and left arm wrapped around the uke's right arm, this is how I would interpret that last move. But for the take down, you should be pulling you right leg back and around, but instead we step through with our left leg spin around and finish.
I'm looking forward to Iain's thoughts on this in Eastbourne this weekend, but thought I'd put my hand up a little ahead of time. :)
Love to know what others thought of it as well.
