Info about "Chatanyara no Kushanku (kata) video"
Chatanyara no Kushanku originates from Okinawa, but now from the area of Shuri. The name of this kata comes from the Chinese military man Kung Hsiang Chung, who has taught Sagukawa his art of fighting. Many of these “Chinese Masters” traveled through Japan to propagate their arts. Via Okinawa this kata arrived at the continent. There are many versions of this kata: Kusanku sho and dai (Shorin ryu), Kanku sho, the dai (Shotokan), Kankudai (Kyokushinkai) and Kushanku (Wado ryu).
This kata trains the body to adapt itself spontaneously to the changed situations. Also the skillfulness to jump and the art of the”low-fighting” are being exercised.
