Bunkai (applicaton) of Kata and single moves from Grandmaster Dan Anderson, 10th Dan Karate
In September 2019 GM Dan Anderson taught a Karate seminar in Paderborn and an Arnis seminar in Dortmund.
The topics of the Karate seminar were functionale Bunkai of selected techniques, Sparring/Kumite as well as how Kata training can enhance the Kumite.
Grandmaster Dan Anderson, one of the most popular and most influential Karate GMs in the USA demonstrates in this video functional Bunkai, that can be applied.
The other topics are covered in other videos.
Most of the Kata applications are more theoretical. GM Dan Anderson explains the real applications, of single movements and some techniques in Heian and Tekki Katas.
Be surprised, which applications are really behind those techniques.
