Birds beak strikes could be to the eyes, but I've seen multiple boards broken with this strike so anywhere would do.

Thanks.  It's really interesting.  Not sure what a bird peak (beak?) strike is meant to do.  Is that at the face?

Kevin,

The bunkai consist of finger rakes, elbow blocks, parrys, birds peak strikes, foot parrys, bent wrist strikes, stomping, sweeps, wrist releases and takedowns. This is probably one of the oldest katas in the Okinawan systems, having come from China.

I'd love the hear about the bunkai.
