Okinawa, the cradle of Karate: The second of the three volumes deals with the deeper applications (Bunkai) of the advanced Goju Ryu Katas Saifa, Seienchin, Shisochin and Seisan. Since elements from Okinawan Torite are also contained in these forms, we will go into the history and properties of special lock techniques in more detail. You will also find some information about the historical development of Naha Te and Goju Ryu. We already presented a part of basic exercises in the first volume when we discussed the Kata Tensho. In this book, the reader will also get to know the deeper meaning of the kata, which is called Ura-Waza. In this connection it was important to show how one can develop different application variants from the Kata, which one usually does not recognize easily at the beginning as a student or a low graduate master. Full color print, more than 440 illustrations
