    I believe there was another threat titled "Go Kan ryu: the rape of karate" (or something like that) due to the way the romanji could be misunderstood to mean "rape"...

    Yeah, my karate instructor showed a couple of takedown defense techniques from bunkai. Against a proper shoot, they wouldn't work, but I can see them working against someone who drops level too early and doesn't know how to do a takedown correctly.

    Anyways, where's the knee? All I see her doing is cupping his face.

    Not only is that bad bunkai, but it's wrong.

    People in Okinawa didn't get into barfights any different than people do in the bar I work at. Any combat applications would reflect this. Any sort of explanation that requires you to take a posture that just doesn't make sense

    In the picture above, why the hell would you cock your free hand like that. Any strike you can throw from that position can be thrown from a better position.

    Thus, any application that would just have that arm up in that position is wrong.

I'm not entirely sure WTF he's doing with the right hand here. Resting his big head perhaps? Bad bunkai? Do I care? Am I really bored at work?

    Doesn't anyone know the diffrence between bunkai and oyo? Being the bunkai is supposed to be the actual application of a technique , I would speculate that alot of so called instructors can/do get away with doing some crazy stuff by saying " Oh this could be the oyo."

    Probably true. It was never demonstrated under 'live' conditions, only in the sl0w m0t10n where it worked 100% of the time. But being a young kid at the time, no one questioned the instructor. Such Bullshido...
