Seienchin (Seiyunchin) Flow Drill for Start of Kata

This video shows a bunkai flow drill for the first part of Seienchin (Seiyunchin) kata. It was filmed at a seminar in New Jersey in April 2016. It is possible to drill the entire kata in this way – which we did cover at the seminar – but we must remember that it is vitally important to drill the movements individually, in alternate order, and in a variety of other drills too if the kata is to be fully realised.

This type of drill is good for a time efficient practise of the kata, and it is a useful way to learn the bunkai of the kata at seminars (because the order of the bunkai drill matches the order of the solo-form). These kind of drills must be understood as being but one small part of a much wider methodology: a methodology it is not possible to communicate in a short video such as this. I nevertheless hope you find it interesting.

All the best,
