Koshokun sho (kata) video
Info about "Koshokun sho (kata) video"
Kosokun Sho is the Shito Ryu version of Kanku Sho, which translates to mean ‘To view the sky minor’. This kata was created by Master Itosu, and was developed using Koshokun dai as the basis. There are fundamental similarities in the kata, one being the physical looking to the sky. In Dai, in the opening sequences, your hands elevate, and so does your head, with your eyes focusing through the triangular shape crated by the hands.
In Sho however, while in zenkutsu dachi, before the second jump, your hand follows your hand, which travels behind you. The symbolic significance of this can only be appreciated by the practitioner, but the similarities cannot be denied.
