Thats certainly one of the best examples I have seen of Okinawan Goju Ryu Seisan Kata.

The power shown was tremendous.

Very nice...almost exactly the same as we do it in timing and movement.

I see I'm gonna have to amend my youtube searching to include 'karatee'.

Hello Mark:

Interesting... have to look more closely when time allows. It's definately POWER, but not in the "Higaonna" "typical" sense. (He moves quickly, yeah... )

One variation of bunkai for seisan.

Take a look at 2:23, a knee to someone's takedown attempt.

Sorry - I meant seisan (and sanseiryu).

The uechi versions are quite interesting. You can see a relationship to goju, particularly with seisan.

Yeah, i've learned some of these same applications for Goju Seisan, or at least very similar. some can be found in the bunkai oyo drill we do for it as well.

The kata looks less different from the Goju version than the Sanseiryu, which seems way different to me.

Brian,

This seisan video is a fair represenation of some of Uechi Seisan application potential.

While I've studied the form a bit, Uechi is not my system and my own interests are more how to counter their technique applications if coming my direction.

Uechi is a very powerful system imo.
