BAKKIES LAUBSCHER’S ESSENTIAL TEACHING GUIDE
TO CLASSICAL OKINAWAN GOJU-RYU
DVD Series Review:

Originally, the first two sections of this DVD series were produced as basic training aids for instructors and members of IOGKF South Africa. However due to their overwhelming popularity on a World Scale, IOGKF senior Instructor, Shihan Bakkies Laubscher, Goju-Ryu 8th Dan, has completed his series by covering the entire Goju-ryu Karate curriculum.

This series is a must have training tool for any serious Karate-ka’s library. The six disc set features all the Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate Kata demonstrated by Sensei Bakkies Laubscher, followed by a step by step walk through of each one. Accompanying this are not only the standard grading syllabus applications (Bunkai), but variation applications (Oyo Bunkai) as well.

Sensei Laubscher’s demonstrations and explanations of Junbi Undo, Hojo Undo and partner training exercises are highly detailed but are very easy to understand. Along with this a multiple angle system is used, so the viewer can not miss any of the smaller details demonstrated for a lot of the exercises.

The great content already listed above is completed when the viewer gets a rare insight into some of the strength and conditioning training Sensei Laubscher practices in his own private training. Including grip training with climbing exercises, catching and striking, with the Masters own invention of a moving Makiwara and a series of extensive and intensive bag work drills.

This series is not to be missed out on and can be ordered directly from IOGKF South African Headquarters. Contact Bakkies@iafrica.com
