Whilst there are techniques in kata which have can multiple uses and applications, I was wondering if there are techniques within kata that are so bespoke they can really on have one use?
As an example, is the take down in Unsu. Whilst it is sometimes taught as a strike (due to the use of Ippon Nukite) I have only ever seen one explanation that fully explains everything that’s happening; the stance, the footwork, and why all of the digits of the hand are in the precise positions they are in.
That explanation is the takedown as taught by Iain.
So whilst there are other explanations, because they fail to fully explain all what all the parts of the body are doing, they cannot be correct. As I say, I’m not aware of any other explanation that satisfactorily explains all the parts of the movement (if you have any please post), so this movement seems pretty bespoke.
So, are there any other movements in kata that other people think are so specific they can only have one use?
