Thanks - this should have been an answer, rather than a comment. I'll look for Wu Ying-Hua's book.

"Don't Guzzle water like crazy right away, take your time to rehydrate or it'll go right through you" do you have a cite for that? It is the core of a persistent argument between myself and my sweetheart.

Tachidori - removing the gun from the attacker. It is part of the goshin ho no kata - We tried to practice it Saturday, but we realized that nobody remembered the whole kata.....

Gun tachidori is included in one of our upper level kata - I can't remember which one right now. (It is a relatively obscure kata that we practice rarely).
