These supplemental kata videos are a continuation of an advanced study project I took on as a Yondan and Renshi to video document the full set of 18 Matsubayashi Ryu kata. Once I had completed our 18 core kata I continued to video the other additional kata that we practice at the Academy of Traditional Karate. These kata are drawn from sister Shorin Ryu styles as well as other styles such as Goju Ryu and Uechi Ryu. We study these additional kata to supplement and round out our Matsubayashi Ryu training.

We completed shooting the Sanchin video below just before everything was shut down due to the Wuhan coronavirus. I plan to continue to video a couple more kata including Saifa and Shobayashi Ananku once things reopen and we are able to return to the dojo.
