Information on realistic Goju Ryu Kata applications

Hi  everybody.

I am a Goju Ryu student and I am looking for some Kata Bunkai material on DVD. 

I've recently come across the Kissaki Kai DVD's on realistic Kata applications by Sensei Vince Morris. I am really enjoying his applications but I would like to know if anyone has come across material like Sensei Vince's but for the Goju Ryu Kata as I've seen that Sensei Vince's material on Kata bunkai covers the Shotokan Kata.

Thank you for your assistance

Anwar
