Kata of the Month

Episode 002 Japan Team 2012

Stunning performance of the completely synchronized Unsu kata.




Japan Final Male Team Kata - WKF World Karate Champions 2012

 


This stunning performance of the completely synchronized Unsu kata was flawless and near perfect.  Unsu ('cloud hands'), is the most advanced kata found in the Shotokan and Shito-Ryu karate styles and is generally taught to karateka at the 3rd to 4th Dan. It contains many intricate hand techniques, such as the ippon-nukite (one finger strike) in the opening sequence.The teams bunkai interpretation stands as masterful and should go down in history as one of the all-time great performances of kata.
