September 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 editions featured clip, we are pleased to bring some footage of a truly phenomenal demonstration by Higaonna Sensei from the 1996 IOGKF Asian Pacific Gasshuku, which was held in Goulburn, Australia. Sensei Higaonna demonstrates the effectiveness of basic techniques in a Yakusoku Kumite form. Along with this see the Mastery of Higaonna Sensei in Kakie and Ude tanren as he lectures the audience on the benefits of Goju-ryu. To finish, Higaonna Sensei performs Sesan Kata.
