THE ESSENCE OF SHORIN RYU KARATE FEATURING MASTER GEORGE ALEXANDER, 9TH Degree Black Belt
This tape is an overview of the Shorin Ryu Karate style and explains the essence of the system on one videotape! Okinawa, Japan is the birthplace of karate. Its practice there dates back to ancient times. Shorin Ryu karate is the oldest and most traditional form of Okinawan karate and is based on pure self-defense. Shorin Ryu karate was founded by Bushi "Warrior" Matsumura (1797-1889) who was the bodyguard of the Okinawan king. The Shorin Ryu karate style contains many secret and hidden techniques which are revealed on this exciting video! These techniques include body shifting, pressure points, strikes, kicks, take downs and Tuite joint-locking and grappling. Shorin Ryu karate is practiced mainly by performing the traditional kata of the style. This video includes a complete explanation of the hidden movements and fighting techniques of the kata Pinan Shodan, Naihanchi Shodan, Passai Dai and Kusanku. It also includes demonstrations and explanations of Sparring, Ippon kumite! , Yakusoku kumite (two-man sparring kata 1-6), Bo Kata Sunakake no Kon, Kumibo Sandan (two-man Bo fighting kata), Sai/Bo Ippon Kumite and Self-Defense Applications. A one of a kind video that truly captures "The Essence of Shorin Ryu Karate". 60 minutes

Summary: George Alexander
Comment: The tape is informative to someone who knows little about shorin ryu. However it fails in the sense that Mr Alexander has poor kata resembling that of a yellow belt.
