Martial application of the kata Bassai Dai

Tesi Bassai Dai

I include here my theory assignment for the I Dan exam, back in 2005 when I was practicing karate. It contains my own descriptions and explanations of the various actions used in the form (“kata” in Japanese) Bassai Dai. This is one of the most famous kata in the Shotokan style (read my essay in the page Martial Arts for my concept of karate “styles”).

This is the original version in Italian, so those who are not familiar with my mother language can request an English translation by replying to this post 🙂
