Bunkai with sensei Vince Morris

sensei Vince Morris 8th dan shotokan karate-do karateka

Sensei Vince Morris is now in his sixties and has more than 50 years of martial arts experience, over the years sensei Morris has regularly instructed and  taught Tactical Officer Protection courses at the Antwerp Police Academy and for a variety of other Law Enforcement agencies.

Sensei Morris has had experience in Judo, Kyusho-Jutsu and of course is a master of shotokan karate, he founded Kissakikai karate in march 1993 so he could take his karate back to its roots as an effective martial art that deals with civilian self defence and habitual acts of violence.

Kissakikai karate is based on the bunkai that is found in shotokan kata, sensei Morris is a  karate pioneer, innovator, explorer and researcher when it comes to effective bunkai and I really like the material he presents in the videos below.
