A lesson in defense from Shindo Jinen-ryu founder Konishi Yasuhiro and also Mabuni Kenwa

This is Shindo Jinen-ryu founder Konishi Yasuhiro (with the exception of Mabuni appearing in a few photos showing applications for Seipai )

Yasuhiro and Motobu defense photos from Konishi’s “Zukai Karate” 1956.
including a guest appearance by Motobu Choki
I’ll let the photos do the talking

Hi Victor:

This is Shindo Jinen-ryu founder Konishi Yasuhiro and not Mabuni in the photo sequence (with the exception of Mabuni appearing in a few photos showing applications for Seipai that you've also posted.)

Thank you for posting this. I practice Shindo Jinen Ryu and have never seen this book in person. Do you know where can I get it?

Fabio it has been a long time since I found this and downloaded a digital copy. You can use this link and see if it is still available. It contains another line to find alphabetized volumes that are available to download. http://evols.library.manoa.hawaii.edu/handle/10524/1054 I wish you success
