June 2010 - YouTube featured clip
Welcome to our featured clip for this issue!
With the youtube revolution over the past 10 years it seems only fair to our members that the newsletter embraces this. As well as featuring youtube videos, where available, in Gasshuku reports and articles, we will be having one clip picked by our editor every issue for our members to feast there eyes on.
While videos should never be relied on for true technical instruction, they can often act as a motivational tool and this is the aim of this section...
For this issues features clip, we have some footage of an extremely rare event in the Martial arts world. This video, which was filmed at an event in 2007 in England, features masters of Chinese white crane origin, along with Gushi Sensei of Uechi Ryu and Higaonna Sensei of Goju-ryu performing their respective Sanchin or 3 battles Kata. Each master performs their Kata solo first, then all the masters perform the Kata at the same time. With commentary from Karate historian Harry Cook, this video is definitely worth checking out.
