Gojushiho Bunkai: Multiple Nukite Sequence (video)

In this video we look at bunkai for the multiple nukite sequence found in Gojushiho. There are a number of differing versions of this kata. The suffixes sometimes used also vary from group to group i.e. what some label as “dai” others label as “sho” (and vice-versa). This sequence should be recognisable to all those who practise the kata through; regardless of style or preferred suffix.

This sequence contains a number of potentially dangerous techniques and hence it should only be practised under the close observation of a suitably qualified and experienced instructor.

The sequence also contains a number of options to be used if a technique does not work as planned. As a general point, it should be understood that kata contain both combinations (i.e. do this AND this) and options (i.e. do this OR this). This sequence contains both “AND”s and “OR”s and hence is a good illustration of that concept.

I hope you find the clip of interest.

All the best,

Iain
