#106169 - 08/23/04 12:48 AM Anyone want to share any good kata applications?

I have a kata application to share. In Seiuchin kata. The part with the catstance double shuto block step back catstance double shuto block. when you go into catstance grab their collar now fall into Seiuchin but insted of the shuto block, tighten your grip. A great choke move. I practice Isshinryu karate and would like to have this thread dedicated to kata application. I think Application is the key to kata. People that don't understand kata need to look at the deeper meanings and explore their kata. Find and share application in order to understand kata.

Same kata. Right in the beginning you move directly in front of your 1st opponent, then fight someone 90 degrees to your right?

Personally, I'd never do that. Think of the opponent as being 45 degrees to your front right and you'll see a lot of more practical blocks as well as the subsequent nukite.
