Taikyoku
Taking the overview, the large view. Seeing the whole rather than focusing on the individual parts.
Pinan
Peace and harmony. The purpose of this kata is to develop a calm, peaceful mind and harmony between mind and body.
Sanchin
The oldest kata in karate-do. Means "three-points" or "three phases," a reference to the fact that Sanchin seeks to develop three elements at a time:
1.The mind, the body and techniques
2. The internal organs, the blood circulation and the nervous system
3. The three KI located in:
-the top of the head (Tento)
-the diaphragm (Hara)
-the lower abdomen (Tanden)
Gekisai-Dai/Sho
"Dai" here means large and "Sho" means small. Such a labeling is an alternative to using numbers.
"Sai" means fortress or stronghold.
"Geki" means break-down.
Yansu
Keep pure, striving to maintain the purity of your principles and ideals, rather than compromising for the expedient.
Tsuki No Kata
Fortune and luck. The principle is to realize that your fortune tomorrow depends on your effort today.
Saiha
Big wave. Stands for the principle that no matter how large the problem is that faces you, with determination and a strong bushido spirit, you can break through.
Tensho
Rolling hand or fluid hand. Refer to the the "Three Points" mentioned in Sanchin Kata.
Seinchin
Samuri warriors would go on expeditions lasting months or longer. They needed to maintain their strength and spirit over long periods of time. This kata is a long, slow kata with many movements performed from the kiba dacha stance. Often the legs become painfully tired and the importance of maintaining a strong spirit becomes clearly evident.
Bo Kata Chion
Sound knowledge. Sound knowledge of each movement and technique is the first step toward performing a kata properly. Seeking out sound knowledge is the foundation to achieving any goal you have set for yourself.
Koryugojushiho
Literally, 54 steps. The principle is that each step you take is a link to the next step. Your past is linked with your present, your present to your future. In the same way, the modern is inextricably connected with the traditional. It is important to realize that whatever you achieve, it is always as a result of the steps you have taken to get there. You should never forget therefore, or fail to appreciate your parents, teachers and the roots and tradition from which you come.
Kanku
"Rising Sun." "Kan" means good observance and "ku" means universe or air or emptiness. The opening move of the kata is the forming of a triangle above the head. We form the triangle with our hands and we lean back and stare through it toward the universe and the rising sun. The significance is that no matter what problem or dilemma you may face, each day the sun rises anew and the universe is before you. Nothing is so terrible that it affects the basic reality of existence. As long as you are here and the sky and the sun are before you, you are never defeated.
