Unsu 雲手, which means literally “cloud hands”, is by far one of the most difficult Katas and a strong indicator for athleticism and technical mastership. Practicing it requires tremendous body control and mental focus.
Last week, we presented you an stunning application of the Unsu jump by Koji Arimoto. This week we want to elect the best Unsu performance we could find in the web. Please, write the number of your favorite performance in the comments.
