In Isshinryu testing we talk about the "principal" of the katas, or what is the main point being taught. Sunsu supposedly incorporates them all. There are elements of our other 7 hand katas within Sunsu, and a smorgasbord of techniques; elbows, spearhands, double punches, heel palms, shutos, hammerfists as well as knees, squat kicks (I prefer to view them as Muay Thai-style shin kicks), forward angle kicks, side kicks, heel thrusts, etc, etc.

Oddly enough, while the other kata have been extensively mined for bunkai by my senseis and contemporaries, not as much has been mentioned by them about this one. Perhaps, as this kata isn't taught until shodan, interpretation is left up to the individual. Of course I have some of my own, and am looking for more.

Sounds like a good kata.

RKSI interpretation of kata bunkai, two person (tegumi) drills, finishing techniques and a few weapon techniques based on kata bunkai. Bunkai and tegumi in this seminar video was mostly based on Naihanchi 1,2,3,Chinto and Wanshu.

This is not fighting. Its drills and applications that can be used in a fight. Drills in this short video teach correct responses to different reference positions and basic HAPV. Yes, even pressure points can be added to every technique Influenced by DKI, CSSD/SC and IRKRS.

Hello Shoshinkan:

The kata, like their shown applications seems obscenely rigid/stiff IMHV-fwiw. I would NOT want to be hit by any of his strikes, and appreciated the take down in Naihanchi Shodan.

Too stiff, a very fundamental-simple usage. The most rote and surface layer... I would hope.

Merely my opinion, I could surely be mistaken,

Jeff
