Interesting point he makes regarding the limited striking surface of the naked fist as opposed to gloved hands of boxers.
I noted on the video comments (NOT
from the demonstrator)the myth of driving the nose into the brain with a palm heel is still in existence.
Excellent video

Watch the proper form and bunkai application of the tetsui-uchi [hammer strike] by Master shinjo...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsDtQREA ... re=related

Why does he lift up the hammer fist before the strike?

Here is Master Mattson's Seisan...beautifully done.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZE0mkgZtE5o

Why does he also lift up the hammer fist before the strike?

Why so many others we see...hold the hammer fist close to the right shoulder, in a lowered position, before the strike?

Now watch the kakushiken strike in a beautiful kata by master Shinjo

http://youtube.ng/watch?v=2vgoipt5Es0&feature=related

Watch the height of the 'windup' before the strike.

While at Master Gushi's seminar in Joe Graziano's dojo...with Mark Breslford and his wife present...I asked ...through Mark's wife...Master Gushi how the movement should be done as to height...

His reply was..."you must go over the mountain before coming down with the strike" ...

What was Master Gushi implying?

I suppose the trajectory of either strike with the right hand must take account of the opponent's left arm in one way or another. Either one most go over it, if striking from outside his guard, or the raising motion must clear it, if striking from inside. It can also be a cover for an attack on that side.

I also noticed Gushi’s ending which is interesting as he explained at the seminar, that there is no left hand block after the kokoshiken...the left hand [palm] is to be slammed into the right shoulder of the opponent so as to rip the clavicle out in a finish move_ after the kokoshiken penetrates into the hollow behind the clavicle bone.

This is one hell of a sanseiryu performance by master Gushi. 8O

http://my.twonky.com/video?vid=155799641

Look at his 'over the mountain' strike and the finish with no block.

Also listen to his breathing...he places a sharp 'tze' at the end of the strike, not after the strike 'tsst' _

This is a 'cat like' performance like no other I have seen.

Great sanseiryu bunkai, Steve, thanks.

Yes, I see the double shoken strikes in the first sukoi. Good stuff.

The same double shoken strike is readily apparent in Sensei Gushi's kata.

What are the exact targets, Stevie, as per Shinjo sensei?
