Info about "Koshokun dai (kata) video"
Koshokun Dai is the Shito Ryu version of Kanku-Dai a popular kata in many schools of Karate descended from the Shorin style of karate practiced on Okinawa. The name, “Kosokun/Kusanku”, refers to the name of the Chinese diplomat from Fukien who is believed to have traveled to Okinawa and taught his system of fighting there. The kata was renamed to Kanku-Dai by Funakoshi Gichin during the 1930′s while developing the now very popular system of karate known as Shotokan.
Koshokun Dai consists of around 65 and symbolizes attack and defense against eight adversaries. It is the major form of the kata, and the minor form is called Koshokun sho. The Pinan katas contain sequences taken from this kata, as a result of Sensei Itosu’s effort to enable easier understanding and ability to improve practice of Koshokun Dai.
