Info about "Isshin Ryu Chinto Kata video"
Chinto is the fifth Kata taught at Isshin Ryu Karate.
As with most of the kata in Isshin Ryu, Chinto comes from the teaching of Chotoku Kyan.
The kata differs from others in that its embusen is a line placed on a 45 degree angle. The footwork is indicative of a slipping, deflecting, and a whipping, relaxed body motion. Some karate instructors consider the previously learned forms of the system, Naihanchi and Wansu, to be preparatory and basic training forms, culminating in the kata Chinto.
