Kata Bunkai For End Of Heian/Pinan Sandan

The video below covers the end movement from Heian/Pinan Sandan. It was posted on my Facebook page, so I thought I would share it here too.

It features Master Will Higginbothan of the Ryukyu Dojo in Indianapolis, USA.

    Thanks for the comment Matt and you make a good point. One of the things I like about you is that even if you disagree with something, you do it such a polite and respectful maner. That’s how martial artist should be with each other :)

    Nice post. Lots of respect for the instructor, as it is never easy to post something up for public consideration (don’t we know?)

    One thing I would add personally is a distraction technique before beginning tuite.

    As it stands, this bunkai requires a rather compliant opponent. If you’ve ever felt the adrenaline fueled tension of a full grown man grabbing onto you, you’ll know it can feel like an iron bar attached to you. Generally you’ll want to distract the opponent before moving into tuite of any variety. This can actually be seen on the preceding movement in the kata as the defender strikes left before moving into this series.
