Pyung Ahn Oe Dan Applications

Old video of my instructor and I giving a demonstration of some applications from Pyung Ahn Oe Dan (Pinan/Heian Godan).

Sweet! Two things I really like. Firstly, it’s proof-positive that you can do a formal, clean and visually impressive demonstration of bunkai without having to resort to the kind of non-sensical flamboyance often assorted with “bunkai” exhibitions (take note kata competition teams!). Secondly, I like the use of the double arm raise at the end of the kata that is unique to the TSD version. We karate types don’t have that, so it’s never included in our material. Great to see!

All the best,

Iain

Really fine demonstration, Azato.  Very clean, very close to the form, very practical.  Needs to be more of that in the TSD community.

Awesome. I'm interested in this locking application of the high x-block. Would you mind sharing a tutorial on that lock?

This old video covers that lock (Seven years ago! That's gone fast!). I hope it’s of some use.

All the best,
