for those who study Shukokai Karate Shiozuki is the 1st basic Kata before one moves onto the Pinan's.
Here is a short demo/drill that may be of interest, it is the first ever video i posted on youtube, the sound and quality isnt great as it was filmed on a mobile phone so apoligies. In the video we are using Jodan-Uke / Age-Uke, but one can use any of the five basic blocks for the drill.
For Shotokan Karate-Ka the drill can still be used and no different to Kihon / Taikyoku Kata.
I hope you enjoy the video and may be of interest.
