Sōchin (Japanese: “Tranquil Force”) is a kata practiced in several styles of karate. It may have derived from Dragon style, and was taught in the Naha-te school in Okinawa by Seishō Aragaki. It was then passed down to Shitō-ryū.
The rhythm of the kata is dynamic, it is characterized by slow, deliberate movements interspersed with explosive out-bursts of speed. In the Shitō-ryū version, it employs several stances including nekoashi-dachi (“cat stance”) and zenkutsu dachi (“front stance”). Rhythm is important in the execution of this kata. This kata has been said to develop Chi/Ki energy.
