This video is another in a series that is being made in cooperation with Gordon Fisher. Gordon is a sensei at Doshi Kai Dojo in Acton, MA. Mai is the first kata in the Seite set of Iaido kata. This video was made to offer beginning and intermediate students a study guide to important points to study when practicing this kata. Seite is the first, and perhaps the most important, kata of the series.
This is the video edit for a series on self defense by Sensei Gordon Fisher. This is a working edit for the creation of the voiceover. After the voiceover is complete the final edit will be available here on Vimeo.
The three exercises are Koryu Karate ( perhaps we could translate that as "old school" Karate) that lend themselves well to self defense. Sensei Fisher demonstrates the exercises, shows the applications, and discusses in detail each one.
