What Tsukasa is showing there is what he teaches (or his Father teaches ) the general public..
I really don't know Mr. Pomfret, or his skill level, so I won't say that would be the best defense against him.. But it is a good beginners tool to understand the basics about distance and reaction and wieght balance.. They are only tools..
They[bunkai] in no way display the myriad of possibilities that are contained within the Kata. Most are basic and obvious, they do not reveal that the Kata gives us direction and movement. "Tosh" would often say we don't do stances we do foot work. Back to the thread: Take time to look at the opening movement as offensive in a sense. Look for the grappling applications. I have become convinced that Uechi Ryu is all about Osai or Irimi to redirect and enter.
