Anyone have any good apps for techniques in Chinte? I am/was mainly studying Bassai Dai for applications but would be interested to hear of anything good/original for Chinte - which was one of my favourite kata. Cheers.

Try this. The first two movements are done in very rapid succession, the first against a left jab, wrapping the opponent's left with your right. The second move does the same against a right cross. Now you have both arms wrapped. Step forward left foot outside the left forward leg for the takedown.
I see that sequences as a "one handed" amplified V-lock (smae hand grab), then from a cross hand grab, a fluid motion like an s-lock, then out to the arm bar - which is the high kanku dai posture in kiba dachi.
Thanks, that's certainly an idea to consider. Not many people seem to have any kind of sensible answer for that last move in chinte. Some people start bs'ing about it representing waves on a shore etc. Yeah right. Hello.
