Suparinpei Goju Ryu (kata) video
Info about "Suparinpei Goju Ryu (kata) video"
Suparinpei “108 Hands” is the most advanced Kata in Goju-Ryu. It contains the greatest number of techniques and variations. Suparinpei is deceptive in that it appears simple in execution but when combined with transitions and changing tempos, it is only surpassed by Sanchin in technical difficulty and understanding.
The number “108” is suggested to have origins in Buddhism and can represent the “108 sins of man”. On the Chinese New Year, temple bells are rung 108 times to “drive away the evils of man”. It is believed these named associations with Buddhism is based upon the lack of factual knowledge of the true nature of these quan. Suparinpei is found in the following styles of Chinese Boxing: Dragon, Tiger and Monk Fist.
