Kakie & Renzoku waza

This video shows some the ways in which kakie can be developed from the basic "pushing and pulling" together of hands into various applications from the kata, and ultimately into a form of jiyu kumite or free-style sparring.  Kata applications should always be understood as much as possible in their various forms, and then practiced in isolation in order to add depth and meaning to the performance the kata itself. Goju-Ryu emphasizes a close-quarters, infighting style of combat, and kakie is the ideal starting point to develop many of its techniques.
