I am struggling with a few movements in Rohai. I have difficulties finding good bunkai for the crane stance and especially the spinning crescent kick. I found some information on this forum allready, but I couldn't find the answers I was looking for.
There are of course a lot of versions of rohai. This video is very close tot the version I practise:
I hope I can find some help. For the crane thing I experimented with a leg sweep, but the arms pull the wrong way to make the sweep effective, so i don't think that is what the crane stance is for. Another one that is quite practical for the crane stance is when the high hand is controlling one arm and the low hand is o the neck, so that your oponent is bent over, the raised leg is than a knee to the face. Problem with that explanation is that the next movement drops to zenkutsu dachi with kakete (grabbing motion). I can't make these two movements connect, but I have the feeling that they are connected in the kata.
As far as the spinning crescent kick: I don't have a clue...
Any ideas that might be of help with my analysis?
