and punch situations, and defences against kicks and punches. The Sabaki level is characterized by a shorter distance and foot work is even more important. In the Okuden kata the opponent starts to resist and do more counters. The opponent is attacking more freely. We try to get him in to a bad position and then apply a technique from the lower levels. In Shirabe-moguri kata (the last level, not covered on this video) the defender is now so skilled that he have developed the ability to feel what the opponent will try to do before he starts doing it.

Kukishin-ryû is a very complete system, if you study the basic techniques well you will have a good defence system against any kind of attacks. On the Keiko #18 dvd, the whole Shoden no kata is covered in much more detail!
