Kata applications and analysis is the fifth book written by A.J. van Dijk. Inspired by his Sensei K. Sakagami, P. May, N. Nukina and K. Yokoyama Sensei, he continues his in depth study of Karate, digging deeper into the Waza. The past couple of years AJ Sensei focused on Tanren, training his body to improve his internal skill. He used Kihon and Kata as a tool to improve the quality of his Seichusen and the development of internal muscles and organs. To connect the improvements to applications, AJ Sensei used the Kumite gata as taught by K. Sakagami and P. May Sensei and studied Meotode from K. Yokoyama Sensei. All of that training lead to a deeper understanding of the use of his body, as well as higher quality of the applications of Kata, Meotode in more depth and the actual execution.

This book shows the improvements of his technical knowledge and physical ability and his vision of Kata movements and applications. To note, some of the applications are directly from either of his Sensei or born out of the result of their instruction. 

The 15 explanations of the selected keypoints of Pinan gata and the 60 applications found in this book are a combination AJ Sensei’s own training, studies and preferences and the influence of his peers.
