Here is an interesting find sent to me by Stuart Squire.
Watch from 3:50 onward to see, what looks to me to be, a very formalised limb-control drill.
These kind of flow drills can be useful for repetition, but they have the major downside of a “neutral mind set” (i.e. the enemy is permitted to have their turn). So I think we should make sparing use of them. I’ve put some videos below showing how a more “informal version” applies to kata such as Naihanchi / Tekki and Gojushiho.
The main point of this post though was to show the above video and an interesting “half way house” between close-range “old style” karate and more modern and formal mid- to long-range “one step” karate.
All the best,
