Shotokan's Bassai Dai is so different to Matsumura Passai! How about if you do Kyokushinkai? Wado Ryu? Or modern styles like GKR? Regardless of style, you should be able to see the similarities in the kata. So we lean over for the yamazuki and you don't? Don't let it worry you.
The application is a possibility rather than a law. If it doesn't fit with what your association says, but it makes sense to you then great, we are reading from the same hymn sheet.
Oh - we've gone and put together a special offer! Book and DVD deal! Bassai Sho. See how the kata, often demonstrated as defences against a bo staff, is actually for close in grappling, joint locks, and escapes from realistic types of attack rather than the usual "oi-zuki" types of attack or trying to st op someone with a six-foot stick.
It is generally taught to brown belts and black belts, and some groups use it as their examination kata for taking shodan. Seen in many different lineages of Karate, Bassai is sometimes an enigma. It was groups who insist that the series of turning blocks are there for stopping people who wish to hit you with oi-zuki chudan that prompted John Burke sensei to write the book Fortress Storming about this kata's applications.
The complicated sets of joint locks and escapes are there to make a complete martial arts style in themselves - the Fortress Storming style. Rather than performing defences against roundhouse kicks and combinations that people don't really do, John Burke put together a book to show how the kata works with Pressure Point applications against real types of attack. The author's training with experts from all over the world culminated in him teaching seminars for diverse groups.
Foreword contributors to the book include Patrick McCarthy 8th dan hanshi, Anthony Blades 6th dan renshi, and Russell Stutely 6th dan renshi nowadays 9th Dan and 7th Dan respectively.
The principles contained in this book can be used with virtually any kata, from any style, or any association. It might be rebellious to look outside those oft touted applications that some are "forced" to learn, but wouldn't you rather have the options available to you? If you are serious about your Karate, and about Bunkai, then can you afford to be without this kind of research?
Fortress Storming is a page book featuring background and historical information, a PP primer, and the common rules for self defence situations. Taught at a "learning speed", the demonstrations help with the understanding of some of the moves from the kata. Practical applications in written and photographc form. Which Bassai? Or is it?

Bunkai kata application is usually performed with a partner or a group of partners which execute predefined attacks, and the student performing the kata responds with defenses, counterattacks, or other actions, based on a part of the kata. This allows the student in the middle to understand what the movements in kata are meant to accomplish. It may also illustrate how to improve technique by adjusting distances, time moves properly, and adapt a technique depending on the size of an opponent. Bassai dai is one of the variations of the Passai Kata that is practiced in Shotokan Karate, normally starting at 3rd Kyu. Shotokan houses two Bassai Kata, Dai and Sho. Dai means greater while Sho means lesser or minor. Bassai Sho is taught at the advanced level after mastery of Bassai dai.
