If you go back to the sei chin kata and then look at the Nai Han Chi bunkai....
Remember how "most" do the kata? The first sequence is a step, pause, block/strike and pronation to tiger claw. The SECOND is block and forearm/wrist movement all at once. Well....consider everything stated above, and the Nai Han Shi application. Imagine someone does a thrusting techniques. You do an INSIDE block, pronate, grab with tiger claw, step in and BAM to the side of head under the ear! Then the two motions together (and their slightly different timings) make sense, no??
Now, picture the Gojushiho application. You do an OUTSIDE block, pronate, grab with tiger claw, step in and spin the person around, wrap the other arm around the neck and CRRRAAACCKKK! Then the two motions together (and their slightly different timings) make sense, no??
Once again, don't freeze any of these motions in one and only one application.
