Good Afternoon all,
Just a question out of interest, when working through bunkai for various kata, I will typically "write" the same moves in different kata as the same technique - i.e. every manjiuke I see I tend to consider as being Funakoshi's Yaridama - spear throw - unless the proceeding techniques make it such that this would be an impossible technique to acheive.
Does anyone else do this, or do people try and come up with a unique application for each kata? For Manji-uke it appears in shotokan in Heian Godan, Jion, Jitte, kanku sho, and gankaku just off of the top of my head, and I think I'd struggle to think up an unique application each time it (or any other specific technique) cropped up.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
P.S. Long time listener, first time caller, really appreciate all the stuff everyone on here posts, and thanks Iain for the great forum to steal peoples ide- I mean be inspired from...
