Isshin Ryu Kusanku Kata video
Info about "Isshin Ryu Kusanku Kata video"
Kusanku is the sixth Kata taught at Isshin Ryu Karate.
Of the eight weaponless kata in Isshin-Ryu, five come from the teaching of Chotoku Kyan. Kusanku is one of these. Kusanku is often referred to as a “night-fighting” kata, or a form which teaches fighting at night. Modern research does not support this theory.
In reality, the kata is set up in such a manner as to allow continual study of application potential from basic standing grappling and close striking in the beginning, to more aggressive and proactive techniques near the end. Kusanku is the second of two kata which contain the zenkutsu-dachi in Isshin-Ryu.
