That wonderful little unedited video is of me doing one kata called Bassai Dai.

I also did this in the other video I showed you guys. I think I have improved a little since then.

What do you guys think?

Hi,

I really like your performance.

The really great thing about that clip is that if you can keep up the training pace, film yourself in 5 years and then 10 years and observe what continued training times does to your kata.

That is one of the things that can keep your long term study very interesting. I think you will find you relax better in time and when you do so your center will drop beause your body is working better and in turn your power will increase.

But the video record will help you find out if that's right yourself..... This really can only be observed when looking at considerable time between the performances.

keep training!

Very nice. We do the same kata with a couple of trivial differences. I'd be pleased if my rendition looked as good.

It was quite nice. Thank you for sharing.
I did not see the original video so can not comment on how well you improved.
What I do like is the fact that you recognized where you needed improvement and then made it.
I hope you will continue to work on this and other kata. None of us are perfect so I'm sure you'll look at it and maybe see some other things you want to work on.

I have some old video of Shogo Kuniba doing this kata during his first visit to the U.S. This, along with his unique bunkai, was always a specialty of his. So I have a special connection to this kata and enjoy seeing it done well, even where there are variations.

Nicely done kata. Bassai is powerful

What computer operating system do you have? If you have WindowsXP or Vista, you can easily trim the before action and post action stuff with Microsoft Movie Maker. It's a free download with XP, and it comes standard with Vista.

Thanks for all the comments. It will be interesting to see what my karate is like in 5 or so years.

Bassai is a good kata... I think I can get Bassai Sho up there now with Windows Movie Maker... Which thanks to ShorinjiSeisan I just discovered I had...

Couple things I noticed I had to do to improve.

- I need to keep my back foot down on the knife hands coming forward.

- I need to be faster and stronger!

- on the punches toward the camera I need to have the target lower stomach.

- get lower stances over all.

Nice job, I also appreciated the fact that you didn't add music to the clip that gets real annoying when you are trying to look at martial arts videos. What camera are you using?
