Kosho Shorei Ryu Part 2 - videos

Part one is kind of boring and hard to follow. In part two he gives an excellent example of blocking technique about the 3:45 mark or so. In part three he give more demonstrations with some explanations. Very good stuff.

Throughout these videos watch him control the opponent's head - Control the head and the body follows. Most strikes are short and open handed, used to daze or stun the opponent. I know it's real hard to follow, so if he's in your area you have to see him in person.

Great stuff. I took Okinawan Reichi Ryu years ago and it looks similar. I remember doing San chin for hours, just like you said huddled up like an old man, shoulders slumped and hands in front of you.
