The Aiki of Karate
Tensho, Hakucho, Papuren

Many karate arts claim to start hard and develop soft skills at an advanced level. What turns out to be soft instruction (if any) is a few lessons in joint locks that has little or nothing to do with traditional kata. This double-video set is a unique approach to three traditional kata from Goju and White Crane that are overtly sought but seldom studied for the oyo (applications).
You will learn each form, its stances and individual hand techniques and then Master Instructor Annesi will add "the Takeshin element" before revealing dozens of applications, some direct, but most subtle, fluid, and using energy that is somewhere between internal Chinese martial arts and traditional Japanese aiki. Volume One has over 1.5 hours of new material and 50 minutes of excerpted Tensho applications from The Road to Mastery. Volume Two has nearly 1.25 hours of new material plus a 65-minutes slection of Hakucho instruction from The Chinese (Martial) Connection.
