I’m currently rereading “The Study of Karate Techniques” by Morinobu Itoman (1934). It’s great book that all pragmatic karateka are sure to enjoy. The book includes discussions on throwing, choking, pins, improvised weapons, “cheating”, verbal deception, pre-emption, etc.
Last month, my Sensei and I taught an online seminar covering applications for every sequence of movements in Naihanchi Shodan, and now the DVD of that seminar is available for purchase through CreateSpace!
We have put together a DVD of footage taken during my Sensei's classes at the 2015 Cal-South Shorinkan Camp, where he covered kata bunkai and various karate drills. You don't have to be a Shorinkan practitioner to find value in the material--all Shorin-Ryu practitioners, and even those who practice other Shuri-Te lineage arts, will find kata applications and techniques that can be implemented into your own training.

For anyone practising Kyokushinkai Karate, The IFK Kata book is a great source of information, very clear pictures with detailed descriptions of all the Kyokushinkai kata in it, I have had all three versions of the book (the kata have not changed, just updated with regard to typo's etc.) and have found them invaluable... the book can be found here: https://www.kyokushinuk.com/product/3rd-edition-kyokushin-kata-book/

‘The drills outlined on this DVD are designed to enhance your skill and understanding of the Heian Kata series, bridging the gap between solo practise of the forms to your bunkai drills and ultimately leading to kata based sparring allowing you to develop impact of the kata techniques in a safe way.
