Heian/Pinan Kata & Bunkai The Fundamentals
Ships in 3-5 business days
The Heians or Pinans are widely the most recognisable and practised kata in karate circles today, they are also arguably the most misunderstood. If analysed, practised and taught effectively the Heian/Pinan kata have the potential to be a complete fighting system for the learning karateka, containing strikes, kicks, joint locks, throws, grappling and so on.
With over 350 pictures this book shows how the Heian kata can be used as tools for a physical confrontation, building skills for this environment that could help an individual escape from this scenario, using simple, effective, progressive bunkai contained within this series of kata.
‘Lee’s book helps show that karate can be a very real solution to the problem of civilian self defence. It is an excellent read and I highly recommend it.’
