Pete Cordell has written a new book on the applications Palgue forms, and is making the PDF freely available:
Palgue Bunkai: Decoding the self-defence syllabus contained in the Korean karate Palgue kata series
In the early days of karate, kata was a method for recording fighting techniques. But much of the fighting knowledge encoded in the katas has been lost over the generations.
Using the principles of Practical and Applied Karate, this book decodes the fighting techniques captured in the Korean Palgue kata series.
The result is a simple syllabus that covers all key areas of weapons-free self-defence.
Take a journey with this step-by-step guide to rediscover the self-defence syllabus developed by the old masters. A simple syllabus that works as well today as it did back then. See the Korean Palgue kata series in a whole new light.
This book it is not intended as a source for learning the kata themselves. However, it does contain numerous photos of both the kata moves and their applications. So even if you don't know the katas, you can still learn how katas can represent a broad and surprising diversity of applications.
This book will be of interest to bunkai enthusiasts and also those wanting to add a simple kata-based self-defence element to their karate.
