One website that has recently expanded and made its website videos free via streaming is www.downloadkarate.com. the fullc ourses are now available at no charge (you used to have to pay). 2 other good sites to add to the list of bunkai sites include (but are not free):

www.martialsource.com
www.koryu-uchinadi.com/

All of these are good addiotns to the above list.

youtube videos are sometime sgreat but are often too short and unprofessionally filmed in my opinion.

Hope this helps.

Here's an excellent (IMHO) Shorin kata bunkai site. Some definate eye-openers here (for me, at least). I've found there not to be a tremendous amount of clear and systematic video material on the Web for the deciphering of traditional shorin kata, so for that reason I found this site particularly interesting.
