It’s pretty obvious that this concept, of defining art by the workability of Karate Bunkai has to be pushed through every and all martial arts. Call it Karate Application, Karate Technique, or whatever, if it doesn’t work, don’t do it, and throw it out of your art.
If it is a poser, get rid of it.
If it is bushwah (hit him in the big toe to disable him), get rid of it.
This is not to say that you should get rid of beginning or intermediate techniques which build response and lead to the real thing. This is not to say you should strip your system of energy or breathing techniques, but you should define them more exactly. But…here’s a win.
…has allowed me to perfect the function of my system. Thats the difference between the True Art and everything else. ‘Function.’ Now I have a martial art system that functions at a very High level I might had. I highly recommend this course to anyone who aspires to be an instructor of True Martial Arts.Sincere Thanks Again, Dr Charles R Cashmere Md.,Phd Founder Chung
You do your system, find out what works, what can be kept because it will lead to increased workability, and you define the bulk of your system. Again, be careful, you don’t want to strip the art entire, and just say you’re going MMA, you’d be losing out on the true art. But do get lean and mean and make your art work, and the best way to do this is to make those Karate bunkai work, or to analyze and work them until they do work. Period.
