Traditional Training Methods for Karate Power

The Sanchin Kata, or 'Three Battles Sequence', is an ancient form that can be traced back to the roots of karate. Sanchin Kata is known to develop extraordinary quickness and generate remarkable power. This program breaks down the form piece by piece, body part by body part, so that the hidden details of the kata are revealed.

Regular practice of Sanchin Kata conditions the body, trains correct alignment, and teaches the essential structure needed for generating power within all of your karate movements. Many karate practitioners believe that Sanchin Kata holds the key to mastering the traditional martial arts. Though it can be one of the simplest forms to learn, it is one of the most difficult to perfect.

Goju-Ryu 5th-dan Kris Wilder offers in-depth exploration of Sanchin Kata, with detailed instruction of the essential posture, linking the spine, generating power, and demonstration of the complete Sanchin Kata.

Simply put, your Karate will never be the same.
