Seisan Shito Ryu (kata) video
Info about "Seisan Shito Ryu (kata) video"
Seisan is a Shito Ryu advanced kata. In Shotokan it is called Hangetsu. Seisan literally means ’13’, however some people refer to the kata as ’13 Hands’, ’13 Fists’, ’13 Techniques’, ’13 Steps’ or even ’13 killing positions’. However, all these names are made up and have no historical basis.
Seisan is thought to be one of the oldest kata quite spread among other Nahate schools. Isshin-ryū also adopted this kata. This kata is also practiced in Korean styles such as Tang Soo Do and Soo Bahk Do and is called Sei-Shan or Seishan in Korean. Due to its difficulty, this kata is often reserved for advanced students.
