Niseishi Kata Tutorial Part 3 (Bunkai)

This is part 3 of kata Niseishi. In this live karate class Sensei Huckle works on the bunkai of Niseishi.

It is very difficult to practice kata applications without a partner, but with a little imagination, this is great training and gives a really good understanding of the moves within Niseishi, which is the original name for Shotokan black belt kata Nijushiho.

This is extra curriculum for our Dojo members. We believe the Okinawan kata are an important part of karate practice, especially as many of the kata have very circular and flowing techniques, where many of the shotokan kata have very linear techniques.
