Practical Kata Bunkai: Seienchin (Seiyunchin) Opening Sequence – Jul 11, 2014, Ian Abernethy

This video looks at bunkai for the opening sequence of Seienchin (Seiyunchin) kata. It was filmed during a four day residential course in the UK. Seienchin (Seiyunchin) is not a kata that is part of my personal practise or teaching, but I believe that the principles of combat and kata transcend individual kata. We therefore applied the process of analysis to the kata and this is what we feel the kata is showing. I obviously defer to those who have studied the kata in the depth it deserves, but I nevertheless hope that our take on the sequence is of interest.
