In this video we explore some of the bunkai of the kata Chinte (“Unusual Hands”); specifically the dropping middle-knuckle strikes, the rising nihon nukite (two finger spear hands) and the dropping nihon nukite. The kata contains a number of hand positions not seen in the more widely practised kata; hence the name. Despite the unusual look for the sequence in the solo form, it is really just a collection of attacks to weak areas from within a clinch. Although presented in a set sequence, they can be applied in any order.
All the best,
