Info about "Pinan nidan Wado Ryu (kata) video"
The Pinan kata are a series of five empty hand forms taught in many karate styles. The Pinan kata originated in Okinawa and were adapted by Anko Itosu from older kata such as Kushanku and Gojushiho into forms suitable for teaching karate to young students. When Gichin Funakoshi brought karate to Japan, he renamed the kata to Heian, which is translated as “peaceful mind”. The Chinese translation of Pinan is “safe from harm”. Korean Karate (Tang Soo Do) systems also practice these kata; they are termed, “Pyungan”, which is a Korean pronunciation of the term “pin-an”.
Pinan nidan is the second kata of the Pinan series and demonstrates the fundamentals of Junzuki (oi tsuki), where the same hand is being used with the leading foot. All fundamental Karate movement derives from Junzuki and is delivered from these initial principles.
