Today I bring you my last project, a video I shot with my friend, karateka, producer, camera-man, director... that did not like the result and wishes to remain anonymous.
It is a one-shot bunkai where I try to show some ideas that can work with this wonderful kata (my tournament kata, by the way).
It did not quite show my ideas in the way I thought it would, but anyway it took many months to produce (people are busy) so I decided to nevertheless make it public.
It has grappling, striking and in-fighting so I guess it is quite varied.
Please, send me criticism that is constructive. I already see many things to improve. I firmly believe the ideas and techniques behind it are useful, but we showed them in a rushed and confusing manner. Sorry for that.
As I always stress in this blog (I should call it "Psychological Karate") the most important thing (in my opinion) is to be able to react to attacks.
If you do not freeze, then you are half saved.
Look at this guy:
The father, not the kid.
The people behind just had the automatic reaction of "flinching", that is "doing nothing useful", but he had the cold blood to try to protect his kid's face.
Father instinct I hear you say?
Maybe, but maybe not.
He did what he had to do.He reacted in the most useful way to protect his kid, not himself.
