3 previously released VHS tapes titled "A Return to Traditional Karate" are finally compiled onto 1 DVD.
Length: 196 min.
The late Kinjo Sensei taught a Shorin Ryu variety that he learned from; C. Hanashiro, S. Gusukuma, K. Toyama among others in pre war Okinawa. The DVD covers kihon, the Dentokan Kata with paired applications. The Kata; Pinan I-V, Naihanchi I-III, Passai (Oyadomari, Dai (Itosu) and Sho (Guwa)) Kosokun Sho and Dai, Chinto, and Gojushijo are presented various angles. I found the Gojushiho version very interesting. This DVD is well worth the expense as all technical details are visible and some explained.
It's a pleasure to watch Itosu style Karate being preserved and shared by Kinjo's students. The DVD should be watched by everyone in Itosu's lineage.
