Basic tenshin & muchiken video

Today my late teacher Shuseki-Shihan Tetsuhiko Asai Shihan (10th Dan) would have turned 76 years old. Here is a short video on two introductory techniques/principles that he emphasised (namely 'tenshin' & 'muchiken'). Clearly you can see the origin of his former right-hand man Mikio Yahara Sensei here. This is the origin of what is now known as KWF karate! The footage comes from an Asai-ha Shotokan karatedo seminar I taught last year in the North Island of New Zealand and is courtesy of Morgan Dilks Sensei (Chief instructor of USKU New Zealand). I've uploaded this in memory of Asai Sensei today. OSU!
