Testimonials

McCarthy Sensei’s DVDs are not only very knowledgable in their historical content … they are also very entertaining and spoken with a subtle sense of humour and no political mumbo jumbo! I highly recommend them. ~ Isaac Florentine [Jasmine Motion Pictures]

McCarthy Sensei’s DVDs are great! He’s probably the most knowledgeable person in the world on not only technique but also the history of Okinawan Karate & Kobudo, too. In fact, I don’t think anyone is even close to commanding the knowledge this man has. I really encourage any/all Karate/Kobudo practitioners to have these. ~ Kent Moyer [The World Protection Group]

McCarthy Sensei’s DVDs are excellent and you will not be disappointed, I assure you. ~ Don Warrener [Warrener Entertainment & Rising Sun Productions]

Just finished viewing the Dai Nippon Butokukai DVD and enjoyed it tremendously. A wealth of information presented in such a way that leaves me anxious to get to the other ones. This collection is one of a kind and a “must’ buy for every serious Martial Artist! Thank you McCarthy Hanshi and Warrerner Entertainment for this rare gift of knowledge.  His unselfish research has shed much needed light on understanding our quest for the true path of Karate-do. Highly recommended. ~ Chuck Merriman [Jundokan]

I now believe, as McCarthy Hanshi says, “That Kata is the culmination of of 2-person drills!” Paul Enfield [Goju Ryu Kyoshi 7th Dan]

McCarthy Sensei’s Japanese-to-English translation of Motobu Choki’s, “Watashi no Karate-jutsu” is my ALL-TIME favourite book and I ALWAYS recommend it at my seminars. I am so thankful for him bringing to the Western World. Jesse Enkamp [Karate by Jesse]

In this world of, “become an expert simply by gleaming Google, watching some Youtube clips, or translating books researched by others,” … The contributions (born of often troublesome field research) of Hanshi McCarthy stand head and shoulder above all. – Cezar Borkowski Hanshi 9th Dan,  Toronto – Canada

“I have completed watching your [Patrick McCarthy] excellent DVD series.  I was so impressed … especially by the two-person drills you have designed for different subjects.  I have never seen such comprehensive drills … my mind is still spinning with the comprehensive two-person drills you have designed for tegumi, nage-waza, kansetsu/tuite-waza, shime-waza, and ne-waza.  With over 200 techniques in the drills, you have done a great service to serious Karate students around the world.”  – Charles Goodin, Hawaii

McCarthy Sensei is one of the most decorated and well-versed western proponents of Karatedo and Kobudo with the credentials to match. In short, you won’t find a more qualified or more well read person on the history, philosophy, techniques and kata of the tradition that you and I practice.  I view McCarthy sensei as a scholar-warrior reworking the cultural artifacts and ambiguity of our way of thinking about the tradition of Karate… Like his teachers, he is truly an encyclopedia of karate history and techniques.  The [IRKRS] Society’s “members only” web-page is a goldmine of information and I feel very happy and privileged to have access to it. More importantly it has the most valuable resource of them all; good people and a good leader with vision. – Mario McKenna, Vancouver

“I am fascinated by both Mr. McCarthy’s physical prowess and scholarly pursuits:” Hokama Tetsuhiro, Okinawa

WOW!! This was one of the best seminars that I have ever attended. I kid you not, I had goose bumps the whole seminar!! And WOW what a great and humble master Hanshi Patrick McCarthy is, he is one the few real masters that I have ever had the honour and privilege of meeting. These days so many people call themselves “masters”, however very few are, this I have found this out over my 25 years of training. Hanshi McCarthy is the real deal! – Mike Sywyk, Hamilton – Canada

“Mr. McCarthy’s understanding of combative principles and ability to implement them in an effective manner has improved our overall performance level.” – Major Avi Nardia

Disc 1 [running time 44 min] = Introduction to and a very extensive commentary on the use of the classical techniques of reception: Jodan, Chudan [Uchi & Soto], Kake and Shuto-uke, are presented in a signature-based hands-on 2-person drill. Presented at learning speed and from various angles for the best visual learning, this fusion of old-school practices is sure to provide you with yet another wonderfully new insight to using traditional, “blocking techniques.”

Disc 2 [running time 55 min] = Here on disc #2 McCarthy Sensei presents yet another unique look at old-school 2-person conditioning and sensitivity exercises surrounding a fusion of Kote-kitai/Ude-tanren and Muchimi-di Tegumi-style practices. His extensive commentary and close-up hands-on instruction from various angles really provide new insights to old-school practices. The instruction in disc #2 concludes with the presentation of yet one more 2-person exercise, which will reveal a completely different and totally unique way of embracing karate’s traditional, “blocking techniques.”

Disc 3 [running time 28 min] = McCarthy Sensei presents another of his many signature 2-person conditioning exercises, called Kaishu-waza futari-geiko [techniques with an empty and open hand].

Vol #3. Kata Analyses Bunkai-jutsu [型分解術] McCarthy Sensei thoroughly examines and meticulously teaches a smattering of old-school Kata application practices.

Disc 1 = [running time 61 min] Discussion on the conceptual meaning[s] along with the fundamental practices, mechanics and application principles of the nukite [spear hand], Kobushi [the clenched fist], Shuri-te salutation [various uses of the sun & moon hand posture], Meotote [using the hands in close proximity to each other] and the ippon-ashi dachi [the use of the one leg posture in a clinch], etc.    

Disc 2 =  [running time 41 min] The continuation of application practices here feature the ippon-nukite [one-finger spear hand], neko-ashi dachi [cat’s-paw posture], ashi-barai [foot sweep], Naihanchi-waza [techniques from Naihanchi kata], Nage/Shime-waza [throw & strangle technique] of Pinan Godan and one of Yara Kushanku’s principal engagement templates, etc. 

Disc 3 = [running time 56 min] This final DVD features a wonderfully dynamic 2-person muchimidi-based sensitivity exercise called, “Rokkishu” [六気手]. Described in Okinawa’s secret book of knowledge, “The Bubishi [武備志],” Rokkishu focuses upon the special use of six open-hand positions. The solo-representation of Rokkishu futari renzoku-geiko [the 2-person flow drill of Rokkishu] mirrors that of Tenshou kata [轉掌型], believed to have been developed by Miyagi Chojun, the pioneer of Goju-ryu [剛柔流].  Disc #3 concludes with various related application practices making for a highly informative presentation.

  • Important message for instructors
    While the instruction presented here is, without question, valuable to any/all leaners, it should particularly resonate with instructors of traditional Karate seeking to better understand the foundation practices of the old art before its modern counterpart interpretation emerged. McCarthy’s lifetime of experience really shines through in this series making the presentation of these lessons feel like an in dojo one-on-one personal training session with the master.

▪   Special note to IRKRS/KU members looking to get the actual DVD’s, and NOT the downloads we are offering, please contact Val Mijailovic at Masters Magazine c/o val1515@yahoo.com or Val@MastersMag.com and PLEASE be sure and mention the term Bujin3 so that the IRKRS benefits from the sale, too. Alternatively, the actual DVD’s can be ordered directly by clicking on this link.

Thank you 🙂
