Naihanchi Opening Movements

Some footage from a recent class looking at three interpretations for the opening movements of Naihanchi. This is a part of a new undertaking of mine called the Naihanchi Project.

Thanks for posting! There is a variation to one of the methods you show which I practice. I will try to film it later and will post to this thread as a contribution to your project.

Hey Iain,

Just a new Facebook page and YouTube channel that I've recently started. It's about all things Naihanchi. Applications, history, training methods, etc.

The end goal I guess is to produce a book. I've attempted this several times but have had trouble making headway. My thinking is that I need to start smaller so this is the direction I've taken in my study of the kata.

Very exciting! If I can be of any help on the front, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I’ve really enjoyed your Naihanchi based material and I love the idea of it being collated in a book!

All the best,

Iain

Hey Iain,

Thanks for the kind words. Everything I have done with applications has been very much due to my time training with you. When I get into the writing process again I will definitely ask for your advice. I know its a process you are very familiar with! Thank you very much for offering your time.
