    I know Charlie Wildish to be a longtime, serious and passionate martial art instructor. Through his blog and from his various projects you can see he has invested a lot of time researching and understanding his martial art. I can only heartily congratulate him for putting his heart into his work.

    Best Wishes,

    This is the level of Bunkai that I prefer and is a lot closer to the original intent rather than some long range defense against unlikely attacks, the techniques here are much more realistic and can be applied against common attacks, they are still relevant in today’s society and look to release from a grab while hurting the attacker. The video is very well put together and easy to follow, it could easily be used for several hours of Dojo training if you are a Sensei or to gain a massive insight into the actual principles and techniques of this great Kata

    I got a copy of this DVD when I was going to take my black belt grading to better understand Bassai Dai, it gave me a much better understanding of why the various moves were put together. I found it really interesting and a great help to getting my black belt 1st dan.

    Excellent product! Superb teaching and clinical analysis of each movement in the Kata. The history of the Kata is wonderful in detail too. So grab it while you can! It is not expensive to download. Paying for Charlie Wildish to come and give you a live seminar would cost a small fortune. This dvd download can save you money and can be revisited time and again.

    This is great teaching material. Sensei Charlie sets the contextual background and history to this kata, as it is the brown and black belt kata in most Shotokan syllabi. Context is that information which allows other information to make sense. This is exactly what this does. To seriously study karate the student will spend a lot of time on Kata, to learn it without understanding it would be a waste of time. This will enlighten, contextualize and illuminate this major milestone kata, teaching the student to fully understand and apply the movement in it. I cannot emphasise the importance of this enough. A good buy and a great resource.

    Incredibly practical instructrual video beginners and battle hardened practitioners – highly recommend you take a look. Its often the smallest things that make the biggest difference to your training. Those light bulb moments that change years of thinking. This video has plenty of these helpul pointers. Dont take my word for it take a look.
