Garyu Kyokushinkai (kata) video
Info about "Garyu Kyokushinkai (kata) video"
The kata Garyu, is not taken from traditional Okinawan karate but was created by Oyama and named after his pen name (Garyu = reclining dragon), which is the Japanese pronunciation of the characters 臥龍, the name of the village (Il Loong) in Korea where he was born.
In Japanese philosophy, a great man who remains in obscurity is called a Garyu. A dragon is all-powerful, but a reclining dragon chooses not to display his power until it is needed. Likewise, a true karateka does not brag about or show off his abilities. He never forgets the true virtue of humility.
