Bassai (Patsai ) Kata by Demura Furio

Bassai Kata by Fumio Demura is a very interesting study in how Patsai (his Bassai) Kata moved through time showing various instructors versions. That kata has ebbed and flowed is unmistakable.

This has obvious interest for us in Isshinryu Karate as the parts of the Tomari version (which was Kyan’s version) was incorporated into Shibamuku Tatsuo’s Sunsu (SunNuSu) kata.

Another find from my hard copy files.
