BUNKAI for Sodesurigaeshi

 

 

A BUNKAI is a practical application of a technique (waza), the essence of it. As you can see in this video, there may be several Bunkai for each technique.

Practicing a waza without understanding its Bunkai is more Dance than Martial Art. There is nothing wrong about dance, but you have to decide what you want to do. 

The masters demonstrating Sodesurigaeshi's bunkai are : 

  • Hakuo Sagawa (1917 – 2004) MSR 
  • Iwata Norikazu (1913 – 2011) MJER

 

Note : MJER : Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu; MSR : Muso Shinden Ryu
