Bunkai Lesson One

Some nice Bunkai information

Bushinkai Academy

Bunkai means to analyse kata to come up with applications (Oyo). In Toshu Jutsu our first kata is called Channan Shodan (known in Shorin Ryu, Shito Ryu and Wado Ryu as Pinan Shodan and in Shotokan as Heian Nidan). I will cross reference my applications with those of Karate Jutsu master Choki Motobu and with reference to the Bubishi.

Move 1: The opening double block, punch and hammerfist.

funakoshiMy opponent swings a punch and I check it. Importantly I am not stepping away from the attack, I am moving right in, to upset his Kuzushi.

move1 I jam my elbow right in to his chest and keep myself well covered. My none-blocking hand is LIVE to anticipate an attack from the other hand

As I’m close I now strike quickly with the right hand. This is assuming he does not launch a counter strike. We will deal with the counter strike possibility…

Hung Kuen Master Leung Daiyau

I came across this rare footage of Hung Kuen Master Leung Daiyau at 90 years of age preforming “Snake Guiding the Crane” set and wanted to share. Watch as even at this advanced age, he has the energy, spring, and flexibility of an athletically toned young man!

What Calibre Do You Need for Self-Defense?

This is a story of self-control and marksmanship with an “itsy bitsy
shooter”by a woman facing a fierce predator. What is the smallest
calibre you trust to protect yourself?

The 25 cal. Beretta Jetfire:
Here’s her story:
While out hiking in British Columbia Canada with my husband we were
surprised by a huge grizzly bear charging at us from out of nowhere.
She must have been protecting her cubs because she was extremely

If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire with me I would not be
here today!

Just one shot to my husband’s knee cap was all it took.

The bear got him and I was able to escape by just walking away at a
brisk pace.

It’s one of the best pistols in my collection.

Thats Survival folks!

Revenge for martial arts expert as she turns the table on attackers

By Daily Mail Reporter

Two teenage thugs got what they deserved last Friday when a woman they tried to attack turned out to be martial arts pro.

Priscilla Dang, 23, was targeted by the bike-riding teens while out jogging in Vancouver, Washington.

One of the yobs pulled up in front of her, blocking her path, while the other grabbed her from behind.

But they got more than they bargained for as she quickly sprang into action, drawing on her 18 years of Kung Fu training to teach the boys a lesson.

‘I grabbed [one of the boys] and said, “You need to apologize, and he did”,’ Dang told

The second teen was less willing to admit defeat, however, and began swearing at her.

‘It just made something snap in me – it’s not OK. It’s so disrespectful,’ she said.

She punched the teen twice, square in the face, while skirting his flailing fists.

‘He started coming in for a few, and I was lucky enough to dodge his shots. I came up for another one and I got him good, and I think that upset him,’ she told the news station.

It upset him so much, in fact, that he pulled out a knife, which Dang shielded herself from with his bike, the news channel reported, before deciding to back off.

She escaped without injury and said she thinks she taught the thugs a lesson. ‘I think they knew they messed with the wrong girl,’ she said.

Two witnesses called 911 and one of the attackers, 18-year-old Josiah Sullivan, was arrested.

A younger boy, aged 16, was taken home to his parents and will be judged by a juvenile prosecutor.

Investigators did not find the knife, which Dang said had a four-inch blade.
