Prepare to take one of the most comprehensive and detailed analyses of the throwing techniques described by Gichin Funakoshi within the pages of KARATE-DO KYOHAN. Often called the “lost throws” due to their diminishing widespread practice throughout the subsequent generations of karate students, these throwing techniques described in the 1920s and 30s by Funakoshi serve as a clear historical reference that knowledge and application of Nage Waza or throwing techniques has always been an important aspect of Karate if you are to study the art fully and completely.
In over 8 HOURS of instructional material study we will delve into the Ten throwing techniques presented by Funakoshi in Karate-do Kyohan, Ryukyu Kempo Karate and Rentan Goshin Tode Jutsu and dozens of variations and methodologies. The series includes:
