I was approached the other day by one of my Students who is a Black Belt and whom I have teaching Heian Godan Bunkai. He has been training at another club in our association which they can do. One of their Black Belts went over Heian Godan and my student proceeded to do the version I had shown him. He was told that my version would not work and is wrong.
The version I showed him was the Block, punch and neck crank that Iain has shown on his app, videos etc. This is the first section of Godan.
It then got me thinking on how do others approach this subject with people who claim that Bunkai that Iain has shown to work is wrong. My opinion is that I need to speak to this Black Belt and ask him why he thinks the stuff I show is incorrect. But how do others on this website approach this within their own association?
This is not the first time I have had this issue. I have seen many 'applications' that would not stand up to a proper attack and violence within my own association and I tend not to say anything but when someone has told my own students that I am wrong, it kind of grates on me!
What do you all do? Think?
