Kuikku Bouei Sandan

This version of Kuikku Bouei is based on the Destroy option of the ETD model. As a result this Kata is quite violent in nature. The methods used in this Kata should only be used when you feel there is immediate danger of significant injury to yourself or others.

You will likely notice a substantial difference between this Kata and the previous two in this series. It is perhaps obvious by now, but try to understand why this Kata takes much more energy than the previous two Kata in this series.
