The kata Nijushi-Ho, presented on this DVD by Sensei

impressive release of power that can be developed by the advanced
karate-ka. This can be seen throughout the kata, especially in slow
actions utilizing grabbing blocks followed by explosive counter-attacks,
such as thrust kicks and punches.
demonstrated by Sensei Ertl. This kata allows the karate-ka the
opportunity to develop mobility with its many sliding actions and two
very difficult jumps. The subtle changes in distance are useful
practice for all aspects of karate training but are especially useful
for kumite practice. (64 minutes)
