Isshin-ryu Karate is widely practiced, yet, there are few who have an accurate understanding of its use. In this DVD, renowned instructor Chris Thomas presents a Master Class in the style's empty-hand methods. The program contains superb demonstrations of the eight kata, as well as a thorough and astonishing treatment of bunkai (kata application).
These DVDs are by far the best Isshinryu Karate Bunkai. These DVDs cover all eight empty hand Kata (performed the way Master Tatso Shimabuku intended) and their Bunkai focusing on pressure point techniques and (for lack of a better word) secret and/or hidden techniques. The DVDs are truly amazing - you get approx 3.5 hours of expert instruction! The katas now finally make perfect to me. I have been studying Isshinryu Karate for over 25 years and hold a 7th degree black belt myself. These are the real deal, not Master Uezu and Sensei Jennings' "bock them to death" applications. Master Thomas performs all of the Katas twice then performs a very thorough and detailed break down with multiple explanations for each technique. These DVDs are a must for anyone studying Isshinryu Karate or any style from Okinawa for that matter. The DVDs are very high quality and professionally produced. You will not be disappointed.
