Sanseiru Shito Ryu (kata) video
Info about "Sanseiru Shito Ryu (kata) video"
Sanseiru is one of the 4 “core” kata brought back from China by Kanryo Higaonna. The standard kanji of Sanseiru mean “36”. The pronunciation is an Okinawan rendering of the Fujian dialect. “San” means 3, “sei” means 10, and “ru” means 6. The number has siginificance in Buddhist tradition.
Traditionally Fujian quan fa schools would have added the character (“bu” meaning “steps”) or sometimes (“ji” meaning “skill” or “technique”) after such a number. In Okinawa it is traditional to add the character (“te” meaning “hands”). In some schools this kata is known as a “dragon kata”.
This explosive kata develops low kicks and double hand techniques. Like Shisochin it also focuses on fighting in all four directions. The techniques in this kata seem basic, direct and hard, however there are some unique and advanced, close-in techniques. A feature of this kata is use of morote ko uke (two handed wrist block) which has many close-in fighting applications.
