An Introduction to Okinawan Kyusho and Kiko (沖縄の急所と気功入門) © 1994 Ryan Parker
This tape covers the basic theories for bunkai using the basic techniques (kihon-waza) found in the Classical (Seito) Kata as examples. It also covers how these theories relate to the form of vital point fighting called kyusho-jutsu or chibudi [tsubo-te]. These are the so-called "hidden techniques" (kakushi-te AKA himitsu waza) of the Ryukyu martial-arts.
It also covers some very basic Okinawan kiko (qi-gong). These kiko methods are the ki exercises of the Ryukyu martial-arts. These are similar to the Iron-Shirt and Golden-Bell Cover methods of Qi-Gong in terms of both practices and effects.
