Bushido-kai's Kata Comparison Series

Empi / Wanshu: Form, Structure, & Application

Offered at the Nidan level of Takeshin Karate-do, Shotokan-style Empi (Flying Swallow) is compared to two versions of its antecedent, Wanshu (the proper name of a Chinese Military attache). Sensei Tobey Reed performs Shuri-ryu Wanshu and Shihan Annesi shows a version of Itosu-kai (Shito-ryu) Wanshu. The kata are shown individually, then side-by-side-by-side. Shihan Annesi devotes the dominant amount of time to Empi applications while Tobey Reed inserts similar applications from a different part of Wanshu. These are compared and contrasted with Itosu-kai Wanshu to make for an action-packed hour-and-a-half of advanced karate analysis and application.
