EVERYTHING IS GATHERED IN KATA WHICH ALSO APPLIES FOR THE SPECIAL TECHNIQUES OF GENSEIRYU
As the original forms of the special techniques are gathered in kata we need to explain these but also because they outline the stem of the style itself.
Kunihiko Tosa will here explain about two kata, which are representatives of the style of Genseiryu Karate-do: “Sansai no Kata” and “Shukumine no Bassai”.
After the explanations, then please take a look at the bunkai. In order to compare the differences of applications, which are used in kata. Please take a look at Kanku-dai as an example.
SHUKUMINE NO BASSAI
SANSAI NO KATA
KARATE-DO AS A MARTIAL ART
In the style of Genseiryu Karate-do, we have a training system consisting of Kihon Gyogi, which was created with the aim of providing an intensive way to learn the unique techniques of Genseiryu Karate-do.
Kihon Gyogi is composed of Shiho Tsuki, Shiho Tsuki Keri, Shiho Nuki and Happo Nuki. I later created and implemented – after long and thorough research – the Yakusoku Kumite as well as the Goshin Jutsu into the style, by combining the unique and basic techniques of Genseiryu Karate-do.
