Tensho Goju Ryu (kata) video
Info about "Tensho Goju Ryu (kata) video"
Tensho “Turning Palms” is derived from the Chinese form “Rokkishu”. Unlike Sanchin, which is almost identical to its Chinese counterpart, Tensho is uniquely Okinawan. From his understanding of the Kata of Goju-Ryu and the “nature of man”, Miyagi Sensei developed Tensho to further complete his Goju-Ryu where Sanchin left off. Tensho has many of the same principles of Sanchin but goes further to include more intricate concepts of the techniques of Goju-Ryu. These concepts expressly come alive in kakie, which in advanced training, breathes life into the bunkai of the Kata of Goju-Ryu.
The most notable difference between Sanchin and that of Tensho is that the breathing is explicitly different than that of Sanchin. The breathing of Tensho is not “hard” and external like Sanchin. The breath is internalized distinctively different and to the uneducated will appear to be the same as Sanchin.
