    Here's my take on suparinpei kata - a fairly standard performance, but I fluffed the jumping kick section a bit as I was running out of room. This is the version we use for our every-day practise; there are about half a dozen different variations for various sections that we can also do, depending on which application practice we are focussing on.

    Suparinpei is such a nice kata. Only the senior instructors in our organization in my country are learning Suparimpei, and none of them seem very confident in it. Therefore I have only seen it on occassions and really do not know the details, although I think this version may be a little bit different.
    Thanks for putting up a video of yourself! That is something not easy to do for many, but it is always an inspiration to see how other people train.
    (And you have a nice garden to practise in :)

    I like how the power tool noises sync with your movements and make you sound like a cyborg.

    Thanks, I took long service leave a year and a half ago, and shifted about 40 cubic metres of dirt by hand to make it. The circular lawn is a great outdoor dojo though.

    Lol, when you train outdoors, you take your chances with what the neighbours are doing!

    It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if it were; we have some things that I know my sensei's sensei added in the 1970s, plus my lineage is through the Higa-Izumikawa-Ichikawa line, and all of their daughter schools do things a little differently.
