Info about "Pinan shodan Wado Ryu (kata) video"
The Pinan Kata (peace and tranquillity forms) demonstrates aspects of individual concepts that many may not be aware of. If we take Kushanku and break it down we can then identify these elements and recognise and understand them into the Kata of their own. Although all Kata generally demonstrate a ‘dropping movement’ at the start, we can also take each Pinan and dissect certain elements from them and form individual concepts from each of them. The more advanced the Pinan, the closer to Kushanku we get with the more advanced principles of motion and technique.
Pinan Shodan (the first Pinan Kata) introduces the practitioner to Gyaku tsuki. However, a more important, and very often overlooked principle, are the concepts of ‘contradicting forces’ of the striking/blocking movements. These principles are apparent in our Kihon-Gumite where the body shifts one way and the contradicting energy is used in the technique.
