Wrist Grab Bunkai for Pinan Shodan

Hello,

We have been working a cross wrist grab application drill for the opening movements of Pinan Shodan/Heian Nidan. This video also incorporates target mitts to supplement the counter striking practice. We talked about the importance of pre-emptive striking but also how the enemy may do the same to us! This drill seeks to train us for that possibility. Enjoy!

Best,

David

Thanks for sharing Dave! That’s a nice drill. I like the use of the release and the way you have contextualized it.

All the best,

Iain

Thank you, again, Iain and Marc. Recently, I remembered my Sensei back at Ohio State Karate Club in the late 1980s, Richard McCulty, showed us a cross hand grab release, and I got to thinking about that release in the context of an attempted pre-emptive strike by the enemy. And...voila! LOL. I really appreciate the support and encouragement.

Best,

David
