My current Sensie has asked me to provide some introduction to our members on the methods and techniques of pragmatic Kata Bunkai. Many of the members are mid level kyu belts, mid to late teens and I want to introduce some of the ideas and applications from the Pinan Kata's. I have a lot of Iain's source material to work form but i'm looking for suggestions for drills and applications which others have found particularly effective with younger pupils. My group has good kids with good attitude but some of the applications in the source material require mature skills and mind sets. I can tell them about the four stages of analysis and give them theory but i'm looking for ideas for 'tasters' to whet their appetite for more.
Any and all suggestions gratefully recieved.
