Thanks for your comment and question.

At what point is there Zanshin?: As soon as he is done with his strike, he was in the state of zanshin. And Miyazaki sensei struck his opponent's kote right after he executed kote kaeshi kote. And his opponent couldn't react to his kote even after Miyazaki sensei was done with his srikie.

All his opponent could do was just following Miyazaki sensei. And shinpan gave a moment after Miyazaki sensei hit the kote. He was so aware of what was happening after he executed his technique.

Now, zanshin doesn't mean you assume a kamae such as chudan. As you can see, Miyazaki sensei doesn't assume his chudan after his strike but he is still connected with his opponennt.

I don’t understand how this video could be a good example. So many times I have seen and used the same strike myself and it did not count . At what point is there Zanshin? The shipmans arms are In the air on contact with the kote.
