Shotei Dai Kata (Performed Slowly)

I've uploaded a slow performance of the Asai-ryuha kata 'Shotei-dai'

Even though I'm performing Shotei-dai slowly, please note my use of 'natural energy'/junansei, which is the essence of Asai-karate. This karate-way literally allows one to continue Shotokan training throughout their life whilst continuing to increase impact power (without unnaturally moving, and inevitably damaging the joints).

Here is the link to the kata on Youtube:
