At a recent seminar, we discussed the possibility of kata or hyung for firearms. The John Wick films are a wonderful example of Gun Fu, but the question was whether a kata or hyung could be developed for this type of modern weaponry.
After thinking about this, it seems to me that the art closest to my firearms training would be Iado; drawing the sword and making a cut, then returning the sword. I am sure that all reading this are familiar with the concept, so I picked a lovely example to illustrate.
The exact hand placement, economy of motion, and adherence to the "slow is smooth, smooth is fast" principles are evident. They are equally evident in this breakdown of drawing a handgun from Sig Sauer.
I also see some possibilities for practicing weapons retention in a kata or hyung format. I'm interested to hear other's thoughts on this.
