Busaganashi 2

What is significant about the Busaganashi posture is that it is the only occurrence of “Sagiashi-dachi” or “egret stance” in Gojuryu kata.  There exist two photographs of Chojun Miyagi in which this posture is visible. The first (above left) shows Miyagi as a young man blocking a kick and punch and delivering a kick to the groin from underneath his opponent's thigh. The second (above right) is of an older Miyagi teaching the technique to his students.
