Bunkai, literally meaning "analysis" or "disassembly", is a term used in the Japanese Martial Arts referring to process of analyzing kata and extracting fighting techniques from the movements of a "form" (kata). 

What is a Kata?

Kata are small, structured practice routines or protocols. Through physical practice, their pattern becomes second nature, done with little conscious attention. Kata are typically for learning. Kata is considered to be the soul of Karate.

 Why Bunkai?

Unfortunately; it is widely interpreted that the basic techniques in a kata as only simple blocks or simple strikes.

Did you know?

Many techniques in a Kata contain all the hallmark of signature basic to brutal techniques, including atemi-waza (striking), nage-waza (throwing or takedowns), kansetsu-waza (joint-locks & manipulation), shime-waza (choking), ne-waza (ground fighting & submission) and usage of human pressure points.
