This is a little bit of impromptu footage recorded in the dojo in January 2013. The students had been sparring for most of the class and this was taken while they were cooling down with some technique work.

The techniques demonstrated in this clip can be found in various kata including Pinan / Heian Yodan (the standing strangle), Naihanchi / Tekki (the head control and knee), Chinto / Gankaku (the kneeling strangle), etc, etc.

It is important to ensure the methods of the solo form are practised in various combinations and contexts. It is also important that the methods are given free-reign in drills and live practise. For more details for the wider approach, please visit iainabernethy.com

All the best,
