I am writing a thesis and am looking for resources for it. Any one have any good sites or information of these two? I know the kata, but I want to be very detailed in my thesis on the bunkai of them and not just what i already know as a Sandan. Thanks
YES I am familiar with Nakayama books. I was looking for the old way that you are speaking of. i am writing a thesis and comparison from old day to current day sport. So good info, but was hoping to find something deeper than a sport perspective, his books are great but i need to use both perspectives. Did Funokoshi ever have his bunkai written down for others to study? I know his book shows the kata’s but I cannot remember if they have his bunkai.
I CAN”T ask my own Sensei’s for this is my Sandan test and I can only use outside sources, I am not allowed to ask anyone from my system for assistance. So asking others is allowed as long as they are not in my Dojo. I already have a Godan in Parker Kenpo and this will make a Sandan in Shotokan if I pass all the thesis and essays. Im not worried about the physical part that is cake compared to this lol
