The traditional way of the empty hand
This act of gripping your opponent can either be represented in a kata by an open hand about to grip , closed hand having gripped or both open and closed Ryuei-ryu Karate uses a snatching action called washi-zukami. If if fits, do it! Sometimes, treating open hands like closed hands and vice versa gives very interesting results.

Toying around with details that are already present in a kata point 4 , and adding your own fantasy are two separate things. Post-Itosu kata? Modern Goju-ryu? Give me a break. Get lost. Oh my god.
Heian Shodan Kata & Bunkai: Lee Taylor
Good luck. Yes, seriously, there probably is. And we still practise them all today, in even more simplified versions.
Imagine taking some hot coffee, pouring loads of water in it. Drink some more, and fill the rest of the cup with water. That should give you the picture. Watered down school-kids kata will most likely produce watered-down school-kids bunkai.
If you punch with one hand, you pull back with the other hand, right? Other martial artists always critizise Karate for being ineffective, since there is no point in keeping your defensive hand anchored at the hip all the time. Or behind your head. Or somewhere else where it makes no sense.
And I agree. There is no dead hand. Your body is not a Christmas three, there is no place to put decoration. And if there was such a thing as an inactive hand, it would most certainly be somewhere protecting your face — and not your hip bone. A hand held at the hip is not a dead hand. Hazel Gwatkin Photographer. Iain Abernethy Foreword. The Heians or Pinans are widely the most recognisable and practised kata in karate circles today, they are also arguably the most misunderstood. It is an excellent read and I highly recommend it.
